LONDON SHOP FRONTS By Emily Webber.
This project definitely deserves some of your time, it’s less Boutique and more street, a project by Emily Webber. I like her, she clearly loves to shop, but it’s not Oxford Street she’s on, but instead turning our attention to the connivence stores and wonderful fonts, colours and names that litter the London landscape.
This amazing project illustrates the unspoken hero’s of the London landscape and creates an background for the homesick Londoners and paints a picture of London life for non locals. The London Shop Fronts have been a labour of love by digital project manager Emily Webber from Hackney, for the past 5 years she’s been posting photos to her blog, and has created a wonderful archive of London’s most underrated and overlooked characteristic, the local shop. You can tell she’s a London native by the time and energy she’s spent showing her appreciation to the shops that line the streets. Check out her website and her Twitter.

Ever since moving to London I’ve been fascinated by the sheer volume of connivence stores, and the names! Oh the names, the names!! I have a folder on my phone that’s just dedicated to great shop names, here are my few of my faves:
The Beyonce hairdressers.
The Slick Hairdressers.
The Carpe Diem.
