Situated in the East End of London, just off it's famous Brick Lane, Labour and Wait is a store that takes you back in time. Selling traditional and functional items for the kitchen, garden and home in a timeless setting, this store is reminiscent of the traditional British Ironmongers (or the American Hardware Store). Items are chosen for their quality and practicality, sourced from specialist manufacturers around the world, and often produced by traditional methods to their original design.

Need an apple-corer, pruning knife, linen dishcloth or ostrich feather duster? Look no further.

You can truly find the perfect little utensil, knife, gadget or vessel for any practical job in your home and garden here. Some of the products can be filed under the "Things you never knew you needed" category, but all are eminently functional and beautifully designed pieces that are sure to last you a lifetime.
