Hunting for antiques - this weekend

Vintage things have become so popular that it is hard to find a person who could not boast of retro-glasses, a threadbare table or a roll-film camera. But the question: "Where can I buy such things?" - oddly enough, remains relevant. This weekend in London, there will be several flea markets where it is easy to get lost for the whole day. And do not doubt: you will certainly be offered a bag from Chanel or a Rolex watch of the 50's.

Peckham Vintage Kilo

It is the largest in Europe supplier of vintage clothing, which sells things by weight. This weekend, it has a new delivery, so every Londoner will be able to pick up original jeans, jacket, dress or bag, which could have been sewn back in 1960. Just imagine how cool you will look in a jeans jacket of the times of the Beatles. For a kilogram of stuff, you have to pay £15, and if, for example, you take just a few t-shirts, then you will pay no more than a pound.

When: Sunday, January 28.

Admission Fee: £3.

Address: Unit 9I, Copeland Park, 133 Copeland Road, London SE15 3SN.

Camden Vintage Furniture Flea

Classics will never go out of fashion, and if you also consider yourself a real connoisseur of retro, then do not miss this event. On the flea market, only the exclusive of 50-70s of the last century awaits you: furniture, dishes, kitchen accessories, textiles, cameras, record players, radios, magazines, posters, mirrors, toys, accessories... As you already understood that the list is very long, and you probably already became enthusiastic about the idea of ​​buying a few platinum records with hits of Rolling Stones or a poster with Alain Delon.

When: Sunday, January 28.

Admission Fee: £2-3.

Address: 2 Regent's Park Rd, London NW1 7AY.

Flea at Flat Iron Square

The weekly market of vintage things offers an excellent assortment of dishes and clothes of the 1960s. So, if you have run out of ideas on how to stand out at a party and conquer the hearts of men, pay attention to cocktail dresses. Fancy skirt and print "polka dot" - simple and tastefully. By the way, men are not bored here either: old books, cameras, comics, cassettes and records will take several hours.

When: Saturday - Sunday, January 27-28.

Admission: free of charge.

Address: 53 Southwark St, London SE1 1RU.
