camden markets xo


there is never a dull moment while at camden markets. either spotting a bargain, eating on stationary motorcycles, or incredibly lost in the maze of different markets and sea of people, as i always find myself. no matter how many times i come to camden, i end up spending half the time just trying to find who i came with!
camden high street is lined with tattoo and piercing parlors (one of which i had my ‘happiness’ tattoo done last year (: ), alternative fashion stores, vintage stores, (like rokit vintage, betty & gertie) second hand bookshops and organic cafe’s. if you follow the swarm of people from the tube you will spot camden lock village, camden lock market, and camden stables market very easily.

camden has some amazing bargains, i’ve been having some bad dreams lately, so decided to invest in a large dream catcher for above my bed, for only £8. i’m not sure if it has started to work yet as i havn’t been able to really remember them since, or maybe that is how it is helping..

the stables market is literally wall to wall, floor to ceiling crammed full of vintage clothing, shoes and accessories, and everything inbetween from the 1940’s to 1980’s. you may think it just goes around the corner, but then with everything to see, touch, read, taste, and even smell, these markets are like a overwhelming, but happy pandora’s box.
camden town itself is a beautiful town setting for these markets, you could happily spend all afternoon down by the lock looking at the barges, eating on the novelty motorcycle seats or a cider in the pub. if you miss camden markets on your trip to london, then you havn’t really been at all.
