Went to the Tate Modern on Sunday to see the crack and stumbled across a new shop called 'Joy' next to Amano (just behind the Tate). For those who like Cockfighter on B St. and similar, it's well worth a visit. Lots of cool clothes for ladies and chaps.

You might have seen the press coverage of the publicity stunt when it opened:

I've been in there once or twice. It seems to sell a strange mix of things - quite nice, quirky, classy clothes, and the sort of jokey things you might find in The Gadget Shop.

It sells a lot of very weird stuff. I can't claim I was impressed.

I will investigate, thanks. But if the prices are on par with Cockfighter, I will only window shop!

Admit that I haven't been in Cockfighter for over a year but always used to think their stuff was quite reasonably priced.

The "Joy Store" sounds like a good name for a sex shop, and whenever I go past on the RV1 it kind of looks out-of-place and a bit messy compared to the sleek lines of the Blue Fin building which it is part of.

Jonathan K - I know what you mean about the name! I was first told about the shop by a colleague who's known for being fairly, ahem, "alternative", and because of that and the name, I was a bit dubious about what sort of shop it was going to be!
