When I was a little boy early on Friday mornings my dad would often take me to the Bermondsey Antiques Market, which fascinated me. Especially, as I had been told that under some obscure medieval English law the traders were allowed to sell "dodgy" and stolen goods (See: Marché ouvert).
Ever since then I have loved antique markets and I now continue the tradition with my one-year-old Arthur, taking him to antique markets. Above and below, some of those traders at the Spitalfields market and a short movie about a new evaluation programme Old Spitalfields Market is pioneering, which I thought may interest you...
The market also occasionally showcases the work of young designers, graduates who have recently finished studying in Menswear, Womenswear and Accessories design in the UK. Giving you the chance to see and buy the work of talented new British designers. For the dates of these events click here

This subject had come up from Devon in the west country, staying in London much longer then she had expected. She needed things to wear and went Charity shop hunting.
Everything she was wearing she told me was from charity shops. Notice the safety-pin holding her skirt closed on her left hip....
