Not to be missed ~ Portobello Market

One of the top "must visit" places while he was in London was the Portobello Market. Portobello Market in West London is one of the most famous street markets in the world. It attracts thousands of dealers, collectors and visitors from all over the world (including my husband) because they know that in Portobello Market they will find the most extensive selection of quality antiques in Britain.

He went there on Saturday, and very early, to avoid the huge crowds of tourist. I think some people want to visit the market not because of the main attraction, but it was the location of a film they have seen, Notting Hill (Hugh Grant & Julia Robert). I’m sure he’s around there somewhere...

Portobello Road Market has everything; antiques, second-hand goods, vintage clothes and accessories..

Nice teacups & teapots..Beautiful little pin dish..He knew these are what i seem to really love..

Portobello Road stall selling antique...

and not so antique tin signs..

There are some talented and street performers to be spotted too.

He took a bunch of photos down at the food end of the market. There are fruit and vegetable market traders and flower traders.

Very fancy fashion shops... He thought it’s still worth a visit to look into the gorgeous windows of the posh shops. As promised, he managed to buy few items from the market for our online shop. Please flip thru the pages in the website to find out more..
