Shopper’s Diary: Labour and Wait Opens in Shoreditch

Just opened on Redchurch Street in London: a more spacious outpost of Labour and Wait, our favorite purveyors of well-made, timeless household essentials. Founded by Rachel Wythe-Moran and Simon Watkins more than a decade ago, Labour and Wait has grown to include an outpost at the Dover Street Market and several concessions in Japan, as well as the original shop on Cheshire Street (now only open on Sundays). Go to Labour and Wait for more information.
