The Vintage Triangle

If you find yourself with a few hours to spare in South London then head to Crystal Palace and visit the eclectic and vibrant area called the Crystal Palace Triangle – you won’t be disappointed.

So what will I find there?! I hear you ask….well you will find an array of vintage and quirky shops, beautiful cafe’s and street art that will leave you gawping..look at that gorilla below – he looks well chuffed with himself!!

If you’ve lost your marbles after a busy week, you will be sure to find them in the ‘Bambino’ café where not only will you find a variety of vintage goodies including old school type writers and phones and some marbles for good measure,  the staff are absolutely lovely and they will serve you a cuppa with love.CAFE

Last Sunday morning I spotted a few of the locals driving around in vintage vehicles – you can’t beat a three wheeled car!

Spring shines through this window, and this old chest of draws has been given a new lease of Spider Man life at the amazing shop called ‘Flaming Nora’ which is just next to ‘Bambino’ Café.

We could just feel Spring, creativity and fresh new beginnings in the air last Sunday as we strolled through the Crystal Palace Triangle, mixed with  a large dose of vintage chic. As we sat outside a café soaking up some much needed vitamin D – anything seemed possible. Those are my favourite weekends.
