Happy Thanksgiving!

Posted in Uncategorized

Today I am thankful for the lovely friend that flew in yesterday and brought Bodo’s everything bagels (even though someone at JFK offered him $5 a bagel when she caught a whiff).  My lovely husband who made the egg, bacon and bagel breakfast sandwich this morning which was heaven, and the little lady Charlie who sat patiently waiting for a scrap of bacon to fall. Wishing my family and friends and followers all the best!

Camden Passage

Posted in Stores

Camden Passage is a vintage glory walk. Every Wednesday & Saturday the market pops up for independent dealers to showcase their wares. You will find a little bit of everything including unique vintage housewares, jewellery, clothing, art, and the odd trinket that you just can not live without. The pricing is much more reasonable than other popular markets in London and do not be afraid to negotiate on the price especially if buying more than one item.  The passage is also lined with great little vintage stores and some fabulous spots to grab a bite to eat including The Breakfast Club for your all American fill, The Elk in the Woods for a quick tapas snack and Kipferl for a Viennese coffee pick me up. A perfect way to spend a lazy Saturday morning.


Camden Passage
Islington, Greater London N1 8EA
Hours: Wednesday & Saturday from around 7:30am to 4:00pm
