Exmouth Market is a lovely area between Clerkenwell and Angel, filled with independent shops and restauramts. The area has been a market place since the 1890s and a number of the street's buildings date from the 19th century.
Goose the dog, he not only guards the shop, but stolls along the market entertaining those who sit outside the cafes.
Some mini cacti awaiting new homes.
Sasako creating some of the handmade crafts sold at Botanique. There are now 3 shops (Stoke Newington Church St and Brixton Village were added in 2016/17).
Botanique's wonderful floral arrangents are created by resident florist Pip. We shot some of these in the tiny back yard that doubles as a plant potting and genral storage area.

Botanique is filled with goods from UK-based designer/makers, from stationery and ceramics to textiles and home decor. These are mixed with wonderful vintage finds that Alice discovers at antique markets.
Goose on guard. He is a local feature on the market, often wandering around the cafes on a search for pats (and snacks).
