I've been really really busy this summer, opening the first full-time Sargasso retail location. I can't tell you how awesome it feels to have a permanent home, at least for a while! The Sargasso pop-up is a year's residency in Central Parade, on Hoe Street in Walthamstow, London, a project by Meanwhile Space.
Central Parade is at the junction of Church Hill + Hoe Street in E17. It's the end (or is it the beginning?) of Walthamstow's historic market, the longest street market in the UK!
The shop is full of your favourite Sargasso and KokoVera products. I've also stocked the shelves with ingredients to make your own scrubs, bath salts, and other simple cosmetics in the shop. I've also got a refill station with premium cosmetics and toiletries--body washes, shampoo, conditioner, hand wash, aloe vera gel, hydrosols, and more--so you can bring your own bottles and pots (or buy one of ours) and fill them up. You pay a set price per gram, so get as much or as little as you need.
I've also stocked loads of Hydréa London bath accessories--beautiful brushes, loofahs, bath mitts, sisal, Hammam to create the perfect bath experience or gift.
. . . and MORE Awesome Stuff!
I've welcomed some friends who make things you'll love!
NOM NOM: handmade, soil-association certified organic mum + baby skincare. Perfect products for expecting the loves of our lives!
SOMETHING SAMARAH: porcelain + clay malas + jewellery, upcycled clutches + totes, handmade in Barbados
APOTHAKA SKINCARE: Super-charged botanical facial serums + hand/nail treatments.
I LOVE DOLLY: Beach finds + gems hand-forged in gorgeously casual and playful settings! Made locally in Chingford.
Behind all of this is thoughtful, well-made, and stuff you'll love having in your life.
We've got a making table where you can make your own bath salts, body scrubs, or put a gift together using our eco-conscious gift boxes. Listen out for notice of evening workshops throughout the year--perfume making, candle making, and more (feel free to pop in and suggest ideas!)
The shop is just inside Today Bread, a busy local cafe + bakery. The shop is in the little nook straight ahead of you as you come through the door! Hop on the Victoria line or use the London Overground to Walthamstow Central or Walthamstow Queen's Road to get here: E17 4RT. I'm in from 11-4pm Wednesdays through Sundays.
Hope to see many of you soon!
