Shopper’s Diary: Pedlars

BY Sarah Lonsdale

One of our favorite resources for home products and vintage finds is the UK-based Pedlars catalog; the proprietors have just opened a retail store in Notting Hill (should you find yourself in the neighborhood). You can also visit the website to peruse the wares and learn about how the company has gone carbon neutral (all packaging is biodegradable, for instance).
