For your sitting pleasure...

Upon awaking from BC's little winter hibernation, we realised we were a couple of chairs down. So we cycled down to Bethnal Green and discovered a second-hand furniture wonderland under the railway arches. We picked up a pair of these adorable chairs and cycled them home.

In order to seem indifferent when haggling over the price of the chairs, we played it cool and went for a cuppa at a cafe in a neighbouring arch. What we found was a delightful mixture of hairdressers-cum-gallery-cum-vintage clothes shop-cum-cafe, 10 Gales. Our pot of tea for two came with two Custard Creams and two Malted Milks! Score! And our ice cool bargaining bagged us a third off the price of the chairs.
