Cart getting a make over courtesy of Lizzie Allen


One of my favourite things about the cart is hearing the amazing and creative stuff my customers do. One such person is my lovely mate Julian who spends half his time in the gloom of an editing suite and the other creating amazing, scratchy drawings of Soho’s streets. The streetscapes are always empty save one Soho local. I love them because they imply a narrative and prompt your brain to fill in the blanks. If you look at them as a collection at they are even better. Julian’s wife, Lizzie, is also amazing. Since 2006 she has been making hand-printed wallpaper that is unbelievably beautiful. In an act of ridiculous generosity she has given me a roll to paste onto the cart. Lizzie works out of her studio in Deptford. She is busy hand-mixing her inks and completing a commission for the Festival of Britain’s 60th anniversary. Check out her stuff at
