The Simple Things - - FRESH | OCTOBER THINGS -

The Peo­ple Shop, a warm and friendly store in Birm­ing­ham’s Kings Heath, is a fam­ily af­fair. Set up 17 years ago by Chris­tian and Al­li­son Sadler, it sells wom­enswear de­signed and made by Chris­tian (all very wear­able and af­ford­able: prices start at £30), as well as home­ware, gifts and ac­ces­sories sourced and cu­rated by Al­li­son, all shar­ing a nat­u­ral, clean aes­thetic (wo­ven bas­kets, ce­ramic planters, jour­nals and ar­ti­san choco­lates). Al­li­son and Chris­tian’s daugh­ter, Missy, bakes cakes, which are of­ten brought in to share with cus­tomers, and son Milo works in the shop and spins tunes at reg­u­lar in-store events. thep­eo­pleshop.co.uk
