Ever since Faith posted about the London-based housewares store Labour and Wait, I’ve been craving a nice set of enamelware ladles. But even if I could blink away the cost of international postage (not to mention the exchange rate), it turns out that Labour and Wait doesn’t ship outside of Great Britain. So I did a little digging and came up with some substitutes that are available on this side of the pond.

One source for British household style is Toast, a London-based company that will ship internationally. Their selection is close to Labour and Wait in style and simplicity. Kiosk, a funky importer of all things interesting, carries a few of the same items that Labour and Wait does, namely the lovely sinuous coffee pot pictured above. Etsy is another good source for vintage enamelware, hand-knit cosies, and wooden cutting boards.
