Last September our dear friend Princess Julia took over our basement for a week to host The Glorified Pound Shop. It goes without saying that we were delighted to hear that Her Royal Highness is returning to the retail world with a brand new venture intriguingly titled THE AMWELL STREET KNOCKING SHOP.
As if this wasn't enough to brighten up our day, Princess Julia and her knocking shop collaborator Karlie Shelley have kindly invited MAIDEN to be involved in their exciting venture! Yes, that's right, we'll be putting together a cracking collection of our favourite out of print and hard to find books and Karlee and Julia will be selling them in their shop; alongside the rails of incredible fashions by the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Pam Hogg and Judy Blame. BRING IT ON!
See below for a taster of the fabulous books that we've been busy sourcing for the Knocking Shop!
