Product description

The popularity of second hand and vintage shopping reflects our interest in exploring more eco-friendly consuming and also satisfies our ongoing fascination with objects that have a history. Add to that the fascinating secondhand culture of a city and you have a way of delving into both the past and present life around you while you shop for objects that you won't find in your average chain store or shopping mall. 'Secondhand & Vintage London' gives you an insider's guide to the best shops and markets for almost anything you would want to buy. The first part of the book is organised into sections by types of objects. All the key information you need to know (address, contact details, website and opening hours) is provided along with a brief description of the shop or stall. The second part of the book is organized by area so if you are in a particular neighbourhood you can visit any of the shops- colour coded to the types of objects they sell. Each district has a useful map and a QR so that you can connect to interactive maps specially created for this book. There is a special section of the book devoted to London's hidden gems. In addition, the author has interviewed the owners of particularly interesting shops and asked local residents for recommendations of where to grab a coffee or a bite to eat. Whether you live in London or you are visiting the city, this guide provides everything you need to find those special places. It is not about buying cheaply, but about affording more!
