Object concept shop, Chorlton, Manchester, UK | Angel In The North

A couple of weeks ago, I woke up and decided I wanted to spend a day in Chorlton (just outside Manchester). I blame the launch of a cool new store, Object, for convincing me it was somewhere I had to visit. I enlisted a friend who lives in Manchester, and off we went. Chorlton is not ...
