What I love about London is that you sometimes bump into interesting initiatives through sheer coincidence.
That's how I recently discovered Trusty – the world's first Honesty Shop that's housed in a 50-year-old routemaster bus. What makes this shop so unusual – apart from being in a bus – is that there's no shop assistant keeping an eye on you. You can browse the lovely products that range from household accessories to gifts and toys and simply pay by leaving the correct amount in a box. Even better 10% of the profits go to a charity which doubles the feelgood factor.
If you don't happen to live near Merton Abbey Mills in South West London there is still a website you can visit –thehonestyshop.com – and virtually stroll through the bus.
Happy shopping – literally. CF
