I WANNA NO!
AKA the BEST sandwich shop in the world. Mehodor would wet himself if he ever went there.
Its a thrift shop/vintage clothes shop, and when I was in a few weeks ago they were selling boxed Nintendos and Sega Master Systems.
They have a better variety of girls clothes than mens though.
A brand new record shop selling stacks of mid-90's dance 12"s and then all the new Sonic Cathedral 7"s. Incredible scenes.
the taxidermist on Essex Road.
MR MASSIVE POLAR BEAR?
(I wish this were true.)
round the corner on Ainsworth Road. Make their own pies with a hand operated pie crimper. It's like something from a Wallace and Grommit episode. And the pies, cakes and bread are loverly.
so it's pretty much tat shops for me. Handy if you need a cheap mop and a ball of string though.
A cake shop. I forget what it is called
"WHO'S THAT GIRL? A LA LA LA LA LA, LA LA LA LA LA LA"
Apparently Eve is that girl.
Absolutely none. It's all Food & Liquor stores and the like, mainly. And an abundance of "groceries" with nothing fresh in them, more like convenience stores.
haslemere book shop. i wore a hoodie there once and the shop keepers looked genuinely scared :( ive been going there since i was like 5 too.
It sells, among other things, "buss pas".
Absolutely. Or the Cyprus Potato Marketing Board, although that's not even a shop.
There's some cracking shops on Green Lanes.
about ROFLE. I took a photo, but didn't realise I'd wandered out into the middle of the traffic to do so. I nearly got taken out by a bus. I showed some mad avoidance skills to get out of that one.
Does exactly what it says, bargains for your home. Just the other day I bought a new shower nozzle thing for about £2, and we also got these storage bags where you can stick a spare duvet in and then hoover out all the air so it shrinks down to less than half its size –thus saving on storage space. Other bargains I’ve got have included stain remover and my girlfriend got a sewing kit. My dad even emailed me just to tell me how cheap their instant coffee is. Best of all though, they sell booze well cheap. Massive bottles of Staropramen for a quid!
1An Indian take-away called “India”
and another one, brilliantly called “Standard Balti”
I've only just moved in. There's a decent looking chip shop, which is an early contender. Or there's the market which is good for massively overpriced olives and chorizo sandwiches.
I've never been in there, but it is definitely the best
in wood green, super delicious turkish food. Or possibly Flashback in crouch end.
I just like the incredibly dated joke - when was the last time anyone compared a bald person to Yul Brynner?
A paper-shop that only has one copy of anything other than the sun, express and Mail.
BUT it redeems itself as it sells awesome homemade sausage rolls and pies.
called Bunters. It's the closest shop to my house and is also the best. It's expensive, but the hummus is good.
run by nice people... they have gallery openings and drinks all the time... and brilliant exhibitions of art vinyl covers by labels, or themes of culture...
I must go there again soon.
