LONDON – Last Christmas I spent a few weeks in New York and of all the purchases that I made, it was a random glass jug from Hell’s Kitchen flea market that has become the one thing I cherish the most from my experience abroad. Since then, I’ve become quite keen to explore antique markets locally to see what’s available.
With this in mind, my friend Heather invited me to join her at Spitalfields market in London. On the last Saturday of the month, it’s all about antiques. Take a look at what I found.
There was plenty of bric-a-brac for antique lovers.
I’m constantly drawn to mustard yellow, although I still don’t own anything in this colour.
In my flat back home, I have a stack of suitcases too. I thought the bottom one was beautiful. It was going for £60.
See anything that you like here?
Plenty of vintage clothes to go around too.
What would you use these crates for?
You should probably know that the folks at this market are a bit fussy about people taking photographs of their goods. You actually have to ask before you snap away. One man promptly told Heather off. “Don’t just assume you can take photos,” he said sharply…
Did you see anything that you like? Do you want to go to the Spitalfields market too?
