Old Spitalfields Market …

I went to Old Spitalfields market with a friend of mine on Thursday (before Christmas), which is the Vintage market day. If you didnt know I love vintage clothing and antiques I could spend ages looking around a good vintage store. I tend to go to charity shops for my books. This market had a little of everything some of the stuff they had was amazing from books, to clothes to furniture and records. There was a bit of everything and some of the stuff was not so great. There was another market as well which had a lot more of your typical market stalls. There was a lovely Christmasy vibe around the place it smelt of mulled wine and old things a lovely scent if you ask me.

There was so much to see at the market and it was great fun to look at all the knick nacks I was tempted by a 1950’s handbag but I just bought a new one in the sale at work so I did not get it.

The great thing about Spitalfields is there are loads of shops as well, which sell some lovely things and there are shops such as Hobbs and Traffic people there as well. I loved this store called The Lollipop Shoppe which has the most amazing scented hand lotions and candles.

There is also a giant MAC store (look at the selection of lipstick) I thought I had died and gone to MAC heaven.

I have no idea what this place was but the entrance looks amazing and I had to share it with you.

I didnt get a lot of things but I did get this lovely copy of Sons and Lovers by D.H. Lawrence  that was published in the 60’s for £1!!!! and a Hamsa protection bracelet for £5, I have wanted one for ages but I couldn’t fine one I am sure you can probably get something similar on Etsy.
