I was very impressed with the new independant shop called Lost and Found in the old Lighting Shop in TBR, which opened on Saturday. It was the improbable sight of a vaulting horse in the window which made me stop and look!

Nice, chatty people inside - happy to explain what they do in the workshop in the back half of the shop: they specialise in reclaimed flags (reworked by hand in India and so a worthy provenance!) but also sell some nice steel furniture and Michelin-man lamps etc.

Prices are more Bermondsey Street than TBR, but buying is not compulsory ! Very cool vibe - I wish them all the best.

Now if the dear old Hartley can only fire up again (under new management, the sign in the window says - proclaiming itself as a "new" gastropub), then my weekly trip to the chaotic but strangely wonderful ImageMagic laundry and dry-cleaners might become a little brighter.

And did I also glimpse La Fermata open again..? Come on TBR - with the novelty of Caribbean Cuisine (much praised on this site recently) complementing Manze's old-style Pie and Mash and stalwarts like Kardo's barbers and the hardware store at London Builders Merchants hanging on in there - it's all looking good!

TBR lost its wine merchant and gained a nail bar...

More mislaid, than lost.

Six Wines Eight is alive and well and living in the Shortwave Cinema, a few yards away in Bermondsey Square.

I sort of lost interest in 6W8 when they declined to offer any discount for a case of 12.

(I bet the nail bar would do a discount for a dozen, though!)

From the sign in the window, it is returning to being a lighting shop.

My understanding is that Lost and Found have gone back to being an online only business (but I may be wrong with that one).
