Search & Rescue

    When three friends decided to take over a fledgling lifestyle shop in the heart of Stoke Newington, they immediately bought into the mission statement that doubles as the name. Much of the store’s product is a result of this noble pursuit of searching out old, forgotten pieces and rescuing them in the hope of giving them another life – hence, Search & Rescue. Through the door, the first thing you’ll notice is the amazing smell, which comes courtesy of a large variety of handmade candles, organic soaps and scents from small, independent makers. Almost everything in the store is for sale, which must make for some kind of merchandising nightmare (albeit, a welcome one) when a piece from the cluster of eclectic vintage furniture finds a buyer. Until then, you’ll see ceramics, picture frames, period glassware, local hand-printed cushions, ornaments and the odd kimono displayed on weathered German beer benches or salvaged shelving. A lifestyle store full of period pieces, artisanal products and vintage curiosities, Search & Rescue is as good for a gift as it is for a new couch.Show lessRead more
