It's not easy to find a chain store in England that is not also found in America. But we did.
Cath Kidston is a little teeny tiny bit like Vera Bradley except that (1.) Cath uses vintage fabric patterns, and (2.) Many items have a durable oilcloth finish, which makes them easy peasy to wipe clean.
The store has kitchenware, clothes, baby toys, purses, wallets, containers and lots of other cool stuff. But as it isn't really my style, and somewhat overpriced, I was easily able to walk out without a single purchase. See her website here: Cath Kidston
