Alfie's Antiques Market
At Alfies Antique Market your vintage handbag comes with a few words about its provenance, and a spot of gentle hunting is often rewarded with a genuinely rare piece of furniture. A rambling network of four floors, the indoor market houses some 75 clued-up sellers providing a discerning selection of jewellery, clothing, homeware and decorative items predominantly from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. You’ll find a fine collection of industrial lighting at Stephen Lazarus on the first floor, good vintage ad posters at Dodo around the corner, and distinctive homeware at Decoratum in the basement. Prices may be a little steep if you’re used to a casual browse in Spitalfields, but you can’t beat the place for its dedication to unusual and authentic antiques. Another draw is the humble rooftop café which has a seductive terrace that traps the sun and peers peacefully out over London’s chimney pots.

WOW - what an absolutely stunning place - I can't believe I've never been here and I'm really looking forward to going back again soon. Not only is it a mecca of fantastic treasures, from fun trinkets under a tenner right through to jewels in their thousands. Unlike a vintage market or car-boot, this place has real antiques and their sellers are experts in their area. As a result, you won't pick up a bargain here, but you will pick up something beautiful, so if you've a budget to decorate your home or your person, you'll do well to visit. 


You of course are also well within your rights to simply browse and just dream of buying an 18th century Italian set of drawers or an antique, solid gold, with encrusted sapphires, necklace from the 1920s - like I did. And because the building itself is such fun to explore (there's a full-on pond inside!) with a fantastic roof terraced restaurant at the top, you can make it an outing. Enjoy, take a wad of cash, if you can, and spoil yourself with something unique.
