One definition of “cloud” is “something that darkens or fills with gloom”.  I prefer, however, the light, white fluffy clouds against a blue sky and the feelings of joy that brings.  Similar to an hour or so spent exploring in “Cloud Cuckoo Land” in Islington.  This is a great vintage shop at 6 Charlton Place, just off Camden Passage.

It is a fun shop, pretty outside and packed inside with a huge variety of vintage clothes.  The friendly owner is there to give help and advice if requested.  I particularly like the selection of vintage hats and gloves which can be so hard to find.

I am a huge fan of Islington and this is undoubtedly one of its little gems.
