Greenwich Markets

Our last day in London was a toss up between a trip to Portabello Road or a mission to Greenwich Markets.

Meeting the gorgeous Lynn and Kit at 360_Degrees_Vintage
7a Greenwich Market
was worth the trip!!!!

A fabulous sightseeing river tour down the Thames from London centre, brings you to this quaint little town, truly worth mooching for a day.

I had such fun with the owners, Lynn and Kit, as I tore the shop apart buying almost everything I could lay my hands on (as well as serving a few customers as I shopped)

These gals do have THE most exceptional quality stock with a special eye for unique pieces such as the hand knitted 1940's golfing vest - an original 1920's tennis dress (now ours) and WWW1 nurses uniforms.

Excess baggage takes on a whole new meaning as the pic describes!

Art deco Galerie Prague

Beautiful Prague!!!!

If you ever have the opportunity, Art deco Galerie:

is a most wonderful vintage shop tucked behind the cafes in the old town square.

Michalska 21.

110 00 PRAHA 1

Sneak a peak of just one of the divine pieces now on sale in the studio.
(no apologies for the drooling 'vintage find' face)

Vintage in Europe

This divine piece came from a fantastic little shop in Bath - over the next few weeks,
(especially with some much needed blogging tuition), I will post information on 'must see' vintage shops discovered during our adventures.
Plus!!!! at the same time, I managed to get my hands on exactly the same dress as above in Prague
