Combining elegance with prettiness and chucking in a dollop of individuality for good measure, Lucas Bond has become something of an institution on Bedford Hill. Ceramics and British-designed treasures are the strong points: Andrew Tanner’s simple white plates with the shapes of birds and butterflies cut out look charming displayed high on the wall; meanwhile, Snowden Flood’s mugs capture stylised views of London from the Thames. The vintage tiered cake stands are perfect for a retro tea party. There’s also a good range of stationery, including cute notebooks and rubber stamps, trendy dog-shaped plastic lamps, silver jewellery, passport holders and sweet gifts for new-borns and new mums.
