Later on we went into Greenwich, found our secret parking place that is almost always there, then had a look around the market.
A buddleia in Nevada Street.
This poodle was decorating a skirt in the market.
I liked this old fashioned police sign and all the trails in the blue sky. We are having incredible weather at the moment-consistently hot and sunny. Weird.
This stained glass panel was my bargain of the day. £2! I tried it in front of the light box but the light was too cold. I love it here on the window sill of the back room.
My other purchases at the market were two pairs of knitting needles and CUP that you can see above. The letters are wooden, painted pale blue, and about 6" high. Another stall holder had reserved the letters to spell HENS, for her hen house. So I must get a cup house and then the letters will have a purpose.
The part of the market I bought the window from is great-but quite small. Until recently there was a huge second hand market that had lots of little shops/businesses that had been there for years. It has been closed for some time now, and is going to be developed in some corporate kind of way-restaurants, 'proper' shops-I don't know the details. There are already plenty of restaurants and bigger shops and I think people come to Greenwich for the flea market as much as anything else. It is really sad that Greenwich has changed in this way-not for the better in my opinion-I just wish I had done some sort of campaigning or something to try to stop it.
