Portobello Market: old, vintage... whatever




I love this tone of blue




* About my last post my home town is called Torroella de Montgrí is here!

Some photos from my last London holidays! On a sunny Friday, after having a breakfast to this wonderful coffee, I went for a walk to Portobello Market. The truth is that I didn't buy anything... besides my point of view is quite expensive to spend 10 pounds for an old bottle. But at the same time, I loved to look at every cute item, and thought about some wonderful lady from the 50's using them.
Ohh I'm going to add a new photo, I bought this bag, all the benefits are for supporting a local cause.

  3. Neus,

    You have captured the market beautifully through your wonderful photography. I think we are drawn the same things. I love the photo of ric-rac trim and ribbons, the old books, bottles and vintage luggage. I must put this market on my list the next time we visit London. I think your Notting Hill shopping bag is the perfect souvenir and how lovely the way you photographed it on the steps of the yellow doors. Perfection!

  7. molt bona compra, m´encanta la bosseta!
    Quina gracia, aquest estiu hem estat a Torroella. Vam dinar a una placeta en un bar molt tranquil. Al davant hi havia una botiga-taller que es diu "deFilo", potser la coneixes. Tenien coses molt maques.
    Em va donar la sensació de que no vam veure gaire cosa del poble. Només la plaça del ajuntament i els carrerons dels voltants... El meu home feia bromes amb el Museu de la Mediterrànea, li semblava un nom una mica ambiciós...
    Un petó
