Bob & BlossomA Sunday stroll around Columbia Road flower market has always been a pleasant way to spend the Sabbath. A few shops have already popped up, cottoning on to the potentially lucrative trade. Only open whilst the flower market is in progress, Bob and Blossom is the first retail outlet of an already successful e-business selling toys and children’s clothes. Their clothes range combines fine quality with a bit of panache for your young ones. Subtle T-shirts of various colours sport ‘rascal’ and ‘pickle’ motifs across the front. Their ‘I love….’ range has proved particularly popular as kids love to differentiate themselves. Will it be ‘I love… puddles, cartoons and ice cream’ or ‘I love… cowboys, lollypops and dinosaurs’? Their tied-off beanies and sleepsuits follow the same blueprint. The range of toys is simple and traditional. Kids and parents alike will find the crochet knit elephants irresistible. Presents for kids can be tricky but their gift packs consisting of soaps, sea sponges and a range of clothes in an attractive gift box can solve the problem.
