Fetish for Anglepoise Lamps & Cake?

The Anglepoise Lamp is a classic

The Vintage store tea room, St Ives – if you like original Eames chairs and have a fetish for anglepoise lamps then this is the tea room for you (and me – call me!)

I took my place by the window with my moleskine with every intention of writing. I spread myself out on the table for 4 by the window looking out to the harbour. A lovely tattooed young chap bought me my loose leaf earl grey in a rather modern but practical teapot accompanied by a generous slice of Victoria sponge with a strawberry falling out of the jam, onto my finger and straight into my mouth!  ‘And here’s your eggtimer’ he said. Fabulous! – I turned it over and whilst waiting for the tea to brew, I used the complimentary binoculars to spy on sailors coming in and out of the harbour.

Victoria Sponge, Binoculars, Loose leaf earl grey – what more do you want?!
