A Very Exciting Suprise On Woodstreet Market E17

So today I went to have a look at The Old Artistry in Walthamstow; I thought it would be good to pass by there before the Launch, since I was in that area plus the sun was shining beautifully. Unfortunately the shop was shut, although, it was all OK since I still plan to go for their Launch on the 15th of this month. (I hope to see you there).






I was quite surprised at what I found there, it turns out- inside Woodstreet Indoor Market- is the "Antique City Market Collectors Corner" - once you are inside you will find little charming antique shops selling all sorts of Antiques and vintage items. If you get hungry after all the shopping there is a lovely cafe where you can have some tea & cake.



So there I was walking around really composed but inside I was like a little girl in a sweetshop. Thanks to one of the lovely shop owner who helped me find SOMEONE to speak to and get more information on the Market. - This happened to be a lovely lady- so full energy, we had a brief chat about the market and JiJJy's Maison Blog. she decides to introduce me to two lovely ladies- owners of two of  Vintage fashion stores within the market. They turn out to be Gigi - owner of Gigi's Dressing Room and Joanne- owner of VintageVestry. We met at the Alexandra Palace Art Deco Vintage Fair where i purchased a Beautiful 1950's Fur Coat and Bag from them

Here is Gigi's and a peak at Gigi's Dressing Room:

It worked out well - seeing them there since i was meaning to book a visit to their stores after meeting them to see what else they had.

The Antique City - Collectors Corner- (Woodstreet Indoor Market) is a charming collectors heaven; whether you are looking for antique comics, books, Vintage Fashion or jewellery, Antique Furniture or Art, you are bound to find something of your taste.
