Inspitalfields Shop Review: I was in Old Spitalfields Market last week and enjoyed my shop snoop around Inspitalfields. If you’re looking for the best gift shops in East London or independent shops in Spitalfields, you must pop in. They sell everything from gifts to decorative objects, home accessories, kitchenware, tableware, books, and so much more. If you have a penchant for beautifully designed products or curiosities, the Inspitalfields Shop is the place for you.
Inspitalfields Shop Stock
The shop stocks a diverse range of products from designer brands to independent and local designer-makers. I’ll tell you about some of the lovely items you can purchase from this fascinating shop.
Purr-fect Cat Shaped Gift Ideas
Gifts Galore: Whether you’re shopping for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or looking for a Christmas stocking filler, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The array of lovely lifestyle products, books, plant pots, candles, diffusers, soaps, water bottles, and lunch boxes is extensive. The products from The School of Life are worth investigating, and I always chuckle at their Emotional Baggage bag. Have a look at the London themed items including purses, shopping bags and mugs. The collection of books is impressive including travel books and vegan recipe ideas.
School of Life Gift Selection For Inquisitive Minds
Delightful Home Decor and Accessories: Add a few interesting objects to spruce up your home. I spotted quite a few safari-inspired pieces including zebra print cushions in bright colours, leopard candle holders and table lamps, plus monkey lamps. Other items include drawer handles, terrariums, vases, ornaments, rugs, small furniture items, and so much more.
Fascinating Curiosities: Those with a fascination for curiosity objects will love the octopus shape paperweight, bowl and a wine bottle holder. Glass domes standing on bird feet, snake-shaped candle holders are other exciting finds.
Tasty Tableware and Kitchenware: Cute items include bird-shaped egg cups and cat-shaped salt and pepper pots. Beautiful bowls, plates and serving dishes are also available. Gifts for new homeowners include tea towels, barware and espresso cups.
Colourful Tableware Collection
Botanical Beauties: If you’re looking for a gift for a gardener, you can buy one of the seed packs to grow Thai Basil or San Marzano Nano Tomatoes. For friends who live in apartments, the lovely little plant pots are perfect. The selection of indoor plant and gardening books is well-curated. I adore the face imprinted flowerpots and plant pots. The vintage style botanical posters are super cute.

Superb Shop Interiors
The shop is small, but the owner cleverly manages to showcase a wide range of products. The merchandise is curated into safari, tropical, curiosity, astrological and other amusing collections.
Amazing Astrology Gifts
You’ll notice that products are situated close together to tell a story like the Thinking Monkey placed next to a book about Big Ideas For The Curious Mind.
Some of the brick walls are dark blue to create an atmospheric cocoon from the bustling market outside. Vintage cabinets with glass shelves display fabulous decorative objects. Make sure you allow plenty of time to see everything; you are likely to spot something completely adorable. Once you’ve ventured inside this store, it is difficult to leave because it’s so lovely!
