:: Video still wearing a vintage dress ::
Video shot by Treve Jackson-Hicks
A slightly different post today as you can see from the video above. Apologises about my annoying voice (insert monkey with hands over his eyes emoji here). Last month I had the pleasure of being asked to head over to Camden Market to wander around and pick out a few of my favourite things from the hundreds of shops and stalls there, being filmed along the way. If you haven’t been it’s basically like a little aladdins cave, you can definitely get lost in there which is all part of the fun.
Now if you’re not familiar with Camden Market, for me it used to be the place to go for hidden gems, bohemian pieces, antiques and vintage, it’s been around since the 70s and is now going through a massive overhaul and going back to it’s bohemian roots. If you’re a tourist to London I’d highly recommend getting lost there for a day. It’s steeped in history and now with the launch of the new Camden Market website you can find the best of the market online too.
:: What I chose ::
:: Cactus leather custom one-off leather bag :: similar here ::
Cactus leather is an incredible leather bag and accessories shop in the heart of the stables in Camden where they hand-make all their leather products, combining the influence of British culture with Moroccan leather tradition. They can custom make you anything too, which is pretty amazing.
:: Paisley Throw and Embroidered Pom Pom Bag :: Both Araucaria ::
I found these great pieces in a shop called Araucaria, which is full of indian inspired homeware pieces, and they sell a bit of clothing too. A real life treasure trove. I’m going to use the pom pom bag as a makeup bag.
:: Brass Snake Ring :: Tribu ::
Tribu is a handmade jewellery shop inspired by tribal cultures, artists and music, they hand make a lot of the jewellery actually in the back of the shop and can resize or adjust anything to make sure it fits you perfectly. I’ve been after a snake ring for ages so I’m really pleased with this one.
Have you been to Camden market? What’s your favourite shop?
