“Honey, what are we searching for? Used diapers or vintage Chanel? “. This was the first reaction of my friend Nicolas when I forced him to forget bed on a Sunday morning and join me to this endless stroll along the Brick Lane Market. And he wasn’t wrong at all, because the East End Hotspot has it all. From household goods, tools and bargain fruits to the most uncommon vintage pieces, bric-a-bracs, quirky accessories and retro furniture. If I was searching for used diapers, I would have found a dozen, but while working my way through the crowd I realised that shopping could wait because the most interesting part was the edgy mishmass of people. It’s obvious what really caught my attention, enjoy!
