We’re diving in head first for this week’s Friday Finds with a nautical themed post. Splish and splash with our top picks of fashion, food and interiors…

  • Fashion: Walk the plank

Glaswegian brand Abandon Ship recently opened their first London shop in the Capital’s fashionable Newburgh Street. The brand has has an array of tees, jackets and accessories, all with a 90s skater feel. Mark has already fished out this tartan tee… how apt!

  • Interiors: Setting sail

The Tab Collective is a new homewares e-tailer and it’s adorable. From prints and tea towels to wallpaper and soft furnishings, The Tab Collective champions new and independent designers and we pretty much want it all. These prints by Mashka are definitely the cool cats of the collection, but its Salty Seadog and The Captain, two handmade ‘alternative taxidermy’ figurines, who are welcome to join our crew any day… as long as they scrub the deck, that is!

  • Food: Catch of the day

If you’re a foodie then head over to The Londoner who boasts many a great recipe to rustle up. Our latest tester was the ‘Epic Fish Taco’s’ recipe and it was scrum-diddily-umptous, if we do say so ourselves.

We never had time to take a photo, they were so delicious that we demolished them before we could snap away. You could say we’re on the ‘See-food diet’ ;)!

  • Place to go: Buoy, oh buoy

We contemplated posting about this place, not because there is anything bad with it, but more because we didn’t want to give the secret away! Trinity Buoy Wharf is a short walk from East India station in South East London.

This historic docklands location once manufactured and repaired buoys and markers for the River Thames. Now home to studios, offices and London’s smallest museum, as well as Fatboy’s Diner – a must try for their soda floats. Trinity Buoy Wharf also has London’s only lighthouse which currently hosts Jem Finer’s incredible ‘Longplayer’; a digital musical composition which plays in real-time for a millenium. As you make your way up the stairs you’ll see 234 singing bowls followed by a fantastic view of the O2 arena. A must for a sunny Sunday!
