Described by Time Out London as Martha Stewart Meets David Lynch, Paxton Gate turns 20 this year. So, why not head over to Valencia Street to buy spider webs under glass, venus flytraps, a capsule lamp from Evan Chambers, airplant frames, a taxidermy blackbuck wall mount, ceramic wall pods, hoof inkwells (why not!), natural soaps, mounted butterflies, and more.
Not just for horrible parents who won't allow their kids to watch TV or wear name brands, Paxton Gate for Kids offers old time children toys in these our modern times. They've got puppets, science-learnin' stuff, books, puzzles, musical instruments, stamp sets, clay products, and other items of adorability.
