I boarded the red eye from Belfast to London on Saturday morning! The main purpose of my trip was to attend The Pop Up Flea but I also took the opportunity to visit a few great stores while I was there – it’s important to mix business with pleasure…
First on the list was the Tricker’s store to stock up on some yellow / brown shoe laces.
Second stop was to The Pop Up Flea. Find out more here … www.thepopupflea.com

I then had a late morning brew with Daniel Giacopelli, Monocle 24 Producer. We had a great chat about Loft Trading and the concept behind our brand and unique pieces. Daniel premier-pharmacy.com even managed to squeeze in a radio interview for one of his upcoming shows The Entrepreneurs. Visit Monocle here… www.monocle.com
On my way to the Marylebone area I walked up Saville Row where I was fortunate to spot a tailor working hard in the basement!
In Marylebone I dropped into the amazing Trunk Clothiers and Trunk Labs and I wasn’t disappointed… this is a great store! A mint tea in The Monocle Cafe was the perfect way to quench my thirst after a lot of walking!
Very tired feet in London Victoria Station, where I caught the train back to the airport.
A great day for Loft Trading – thanks to everyone who took the time to meet with me.
