Last Christmas I was on the hunt for some Paper Boat Press stars. I knew High Tea with Mrs Woo stocked some of Kylie's products so off I went. Unfortunately they didn't have any of the stars but I still left with a few goodies. I'd not visited the shop before and I found it to be charming and made a mental note to return one day to photograph the store.
I don't know if you've been along Oxford Street Paddington recently but it's a bit of a sad affair these days. So many shops are empty and have been for quite some time. Well the same can't be said for High Tea with Mrs Woo - the shop was buzzing with people the duration of my stay.
The shop is part clothing store/part gallery space and the clothing is all designed by the three Foong sisters. As well as the Paddington store, the sisters run another High Tea with Mrs Woo store in Newcastle.
If you look really carefully you can see an old holiday photo of the three sisters.

High Tea with Mrs Woo hosts regular pop up shops. Heaven in Earth was the pop up shop when I visited the store and some of the items you can see here are from their online store. Since then Rebound Books has moved into the store and will be there until the end of May.
Some Heaven in Earth, Sunday Morning Designs and East of India products.
