We first reported on Labour and Wait, the quaint East London homeware shop on Redchurch Street, here. A second visit, albeit online, has left us twice smitten. From children's hobby kits to marbled pots and plates, we handpicked nine of our favorite products, all available on their webshop.

This glossy avocado-colored kettle was made by a Japanese enamelware company who has been in business for over 70 years. Suitable for induction, gas, or electric cookers. $96

Perhaps outfitted with the best hygiene product packaging design, this flouride-free toothpaste was developed by Alberto Ferreira Couto in the 1930s. Allow the 'couto paste' to work in the mouth for a few minutes to maximize its antiseptic benefits. $5
