Yes yes, Portobello market! first time and last time I've been there was 3 years ago! yes, as a tourist of course. It's always different story isn't it when you become a resident of the town, you're just not bother to go anywhere that across your area. we live in the east end, so it's quite a special thing for us to travel all the way over to the west. Sound such a drama, but actually just about 10 stops on the tube :p Anyway, because today we got a mission which was seeking for a special present for Ev's mum's 60th birthday. Quite exciting going to Portobello market with my husband for the first time! haaa. Oh, well the market was packed with a stream of tourists on a sunny Saturday and yes we're start getting annoy! not very nice but we just hate a crowd....grumpy couple we are indeed. However, it was very nice and lovely of course. Nothing hill, you know...surrounded by big massive lovely Georgian/Victorian buildings (undoubtedly with flower beds). The market is very good if you after a good condition and fine quality vintage stuffs, such as jewelry, china and painting. Unlikely stuffs you'll find on Brick Lance which pretty much like dump found. We eventually got it-special present-after wandered around just only 2 hrs. pretty good for the shopping day. Go if you just wanna hang out in different area and of course to feel more swanky, both people and atmosphere. It's a good fun. PS. I didn't take a lot of photo..sorry. just can't be bother!
