Not on your Nelly!

Now those in the know will already be aware that the name Nelly Duff is derived from cockney rhyming slang, and indeed Nelly is a true British gal!

At the gallery we pride ourselves on our own in-house print production, working with an array of London based artists and print-makers to produce the distinctive artworks that make us so proud :)

Yet you don't have to go far to come across an ever growing sense of discenchantment, with regards to home grown craftmanship- take Aditya Chakrabortty's recent Guardian piece entitled 'Why Doesnt Britain Make Things Anymore?' However there are a few gems still sparkling, that are not 'Made in China.'

Birthplace of the old girl herself, Columbia Road is a hive of independent business, and ofcourse what could be more authentically 'London' than the Flower Market straight out of George Bernard Shaw! Recycle your Guardian and get yourself down for Christmas Wednesdays, when we will be open until 9pm, starting on the 30th!
