William St Paddington is one of our fave shopping haunts for homewares and fashion that you won’t see on every Tom, Dick and Harry. After you’ve stocked up at Just William Chocolates, waddle down and pop into 'I Like Birds'. This fab little store is a treasure trove of homewares and ‘knick-knackery’ (yep … that’s a word). It’s a mixture of vintage and new pieces that are ever changing, depending on what owner Tamara Turnbull has uncovered at auctions, flea markets or on her regular country trips. Whether it’s brightly coloured balls of twine, flying wall birds, bone handled scissors, cool cushions or a macramé owl you ‘need’ … you’ll find it here. I stocked up on a few pressies and a fab vintage crocheted rug which I just had to have. I can promise you that you won’t leave empty handed.
