Londonites, you lucky things! The Peanut Vendor is a store in Islingon that not only sells vintage furniture and other goodies, they expressly believe that the treasures they’ve found should be an affordable pleasure.


Good news for the rest of us is that there’s an online version of The Peanut Vendor, where their vintage finds are for sale.

I did a rummage around and came up with a quick selection, which includes a stack of Ercol chairs and some lovely Nagel candleholders too. Ooh, so tempting…
