Markets have always been one of my favorite haunts, and the Portobello Market that runs through Notting Hill in London on the weekends was an interesting, vibrant place to visit. Wandering through a packed two-mile stretch of stalls during our last trip, there was a great mix of everything, throwing together antiques and kitsch, fashion and crafts, not to mention a whole lot of eye-catching (and sometimes mind-boggling) knick-knacks.
It was a bustling street, filled with people shopping, eating, browsing, haggling and selling which only added to the already colorful vibe of the famous market. It made me think of a great quilt, stitched together with the pretty, colorful Victorian townhouses that lined Portobello Road! 🙂
