Ok, so I’m slightly contradicting my previous post about H&M, but for those of you who are fashion savvy shoppers and enjoy shopping in quirky places like Camden, then Spittalfields is the place to go.
As I hadn’t been for a while, I thought I’d take a look around over the week-end & give you my breakdown of where to shop. Firstly I must point out that Spittalfields market, vintage stalls and up and coming designers are only there on Sunday so any other day is not worth your trip.
I usually start from Liverpool st station and work my way up:
2 – Spittalfields market – this can be a tourist trap and sometimes a little pricey, but occasionally you find and meet amazing designers such as: http://www.loveandbeloved.co.uk
3– Truman Brewery sample sale – You pay £1 to get in and have to hand your bag in for security, but with all the designer clothes such as Paper, Calvin Klein and All Saints at discounted prices, its worth it! Check out http://thelondondesignersale.co.uk or http://www.trumanbrewery.com
5 – Truman Brewery basement Vintage Market – There are tonnes of pop-up vintage shops and markets on a Sunday, but this is my favourite & you can pick up some great bargains such as £15 for a tweed jacket and £5 for cut-off denim shorts.
6 –Another Brick lane market – Good for unnusual accessories such as bug jewelry http://www.maketh-the-man.com
