I love weekend markets! Even if I don’t buy anything, I enjoy looking at the stuff people are selling. I like seeing how the quaint shops display their items. Chatuchak in Bangkok, Mongkok in Hongkong, Ximending in Taiwan, Paddington in Australia–I call these places “wastelands”! You don’t really need the items you see in these places but they make you want to own them. Sigh.
Let’s add Portobello Market to that list. Visited last weekend and I found the merchandise in this market better than those being sold in Camden.
I especially loved the vintage shops.
I wonder if Anna Scott has this shopping bag. “After all…I’m also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”
Journalist: So Anna, how long do you intend to stay in Britain?
Anna (looks at Hugh Grant and pauses): Indefinitely. 😉
How classy would it be to travel with these suitcases?
Note to self: buy an antique map before you go back to the Philippines.
Definitely going back to Portobello,
