We've lived in Dalston, North London for about 3 years now, and though I wasn't so sure about it early on, but I'm definitely coming around. The hip and cosy Tina We Salute You cafe has made me love our little corner of Dalston, and now Bradbury's Gallery/Poster Shop is extending my range of affection even farther.
When I first walked past Bradbury's a few weeks back, I did a double take and literally gasped! A vintage poster shop, 3 minutes from my house! I walked in and introduced myself, then told Peter, the owner, that he had single-handedly made Bradbury Street 1000% hipper (and Dalston too).
With an ever-changing selection of vintage, but not at all typical, film posters from all over the world, always curious Polish film posters, gallery art prints as well as local artist prints, Bradbury's is a more than welcome addition to the expanding reputation of Dalston as the new arts epicentre of London, which is something I am really chuffed about.
So head over to Bradbury's and enjoy the fab posters, perhaps you'll even find something for that oh-so-hard-to buy-for person on your Christmas list. I guarantee you'll love it.
