Make a date for next Thursday 9th December for the annual Christmas party at Alfies Antique Market in Marylebone. This incredible antique market has been around since 1976 and now houses over one hundred antiques dealers in an art deco style building in Church Street.
When I used to visit London in the early 1970s, my mum used to take me around to all of the antiques markets. I can clearly remember row after row of little Victorian dresses and petticoats and all of the silverware and trinkets. I’ve always connected antiques and London and I’m sad that I won’t be able to make the Christmas party next week. It looked like quite a ball last year!
