Shopping and sightseeing are two of my favorite things to do when traveling. I love it when I can combine the two as in the case when I visit Portobello Market, the world’s largest antiques market, and a beloved London landmark. Here you will find over 1,000 dealers selling every kind of antique and collectible, plus food, fashion, the works! It attracts visitors from all over the world who come to shop the most extensive selection of antiques in Britain. We do not go to London without making a stop here, and always come away with as much as we can carry.
My dad had a birthday coming up when we visited. He’s been a trumpet player since his youth, so we bought him the pocket trumpet (far left) for his birthday.
I love culinary antiques (naturally!), so at this stall I treated myself to a set of Apostle Spoons.
This colorful shop was one of my favorites.
We both fell in love with a Didgeridoo.
It was unbelievably difficult to carry home with us. I am convinced that it was this cumbersome and unusual piece of art that bumped us from coach to First Class. I don’t think the airline people had any idea just what to do with it (or us!).
