Shop Snoop: Pictures and Light Shop (Pictures & Light). I was in the neighbourhood so decided to pop in and have a snoop around the adorable Pictures and Light Shop.  Check it out for yourself if you’re looking for a gift store in Stoke Newington, places to buy retro furniture in N16 or vintage shops in North London.

Vintage Furniture and More at the Pictures and Light Shop

This shop has the perfect balance of old and new items which includes furniture, objects of interest, gifts and more. I’ll start with the vintage furniture. Expect to find a selection of fine vintage Danish furniture from the 1920-1970, covering the periods of Modernism, Mid-century and Post War design. The teak wood furniture is likely to include circular drop leaf dining tables, chests of drawers, side boards, display cabinets and bookcases.

Interesting objects will be dotted around so make sure you explore all the shelves and displays resting on the dining table tops. Vintage tea sets, bar glassware, colourful glass vases and ceramic vases were available when I visited.

Other items I spotted included decorative animal objects, religious figures, retro table lamps, trinket boxes, glass pendant lights and old-fashioned wall hanging mirrors.

Vintage Style Milk Bottles

For vintage style decorative accessories, you’ll love the old fashion school half pink milk bottles and sweet jars.

Gift Ideas at the Pictures and Light Shop

New items include a selection of products made by local designer makers, like Stokey Textiles tea towels. The shop owner told me that their product offering is going to include more ethically created items in the future.

The colourful alpaca scarves have been doing a roaring trade so I was informed, and I can see why because they were very pretty.
