Old Spitalfields Antique Market

There are lots of antique market in London.
Old Spitalfields Market is one of the famous ones.
Antique market is held every Thursdays.

From Liverpool Street Sta, the nearest tube station, walk through Bishopsgate,
and turn the corner where you can see the white church.

Walk a bit more and you can get into the market.
And you will be welcomed by one antique furniture stall.

Last Thursday, I went to this market after so long.
I felt it had changed.
-There were more cafes than before.
-There were more young dealers than before.
-There were more clothing stalls than before.
-The prices of goods rose, I guess.
I was not able to find one dealer who I had become friend with before.

One second-hand book dealer lost half of her stall.
But she said the number of visitors had increased.
In fact, it was crowded.
Especially there were lots of young people.

I feel a bit sad about the change of the atmosphere,
but it is good if more people are getting into antiques.
I'm not happy about rising prices though..

Anyway, I enjoyed the market!
