This was my Saturday morning adventure-finding this market, which I was told about by Steven . It was an experience! The man in the top hat labelled 'The Boss' was standing at the top of the ladder overseeing proceedings and giving out helpful advice such as 'Ladies hold onto your purses, Saturday is pickpocket day!' The tables were covered with a collection of stuff that had just been tipped there after being transported from the damp shed it had been stored in-I swear I picked up something with half a dead slug on it! Everyone in this half of the market was either related to 'The Boss'-or deferred to him. Everything cost 'two quid'. As I find parting with my money extremely easy I did manage to find some small purchases-2 old cotton reels(wood), a Barbie, a Ken and an Action Man, two Aliens and a piece of fur (all for school), 4 old bits of watches-for dolls or something, a book called 'Souvenir of the Ballet' with a lovely fifties cover, and a collection of lovely amber coloured pieces of glass. The Russian man who sold them to me (for two quid) recommended their use in a fire place, whilst patting me on the arm and commenting on my proper English accent! I took three photos and then thought better of taking any more in case someone took offence. There was a certain edge that you just don't get at nice safe Greenwich market. I will be back!
I hope this picture enlarges-there is The Boss! It didn't enlarge so here is a slight close up.
