Antiques and Flea Market Shopping in London England

Continuing off inspiration from Lonny magazine, there
is a section in their latest issue on flea markets and
antiques.  I don't know about you, but I am totally a 
self professed flea market, antiques and thrift shop
addict.  I can spend literally hours or a whole day 
shopping at an antiques or flea market. 

If you're in London, there are some famous streets for 
antiques shopping.

Cath Kidston's suggestion above which names the
most well known antiques shopping arcades and
open air antiques and flea market on Portobello

Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic gives
her tips for shopping on Portobello Road.

It seems to be a unanimous tip to shop 
there on Friday and to avoid Saturday.

If you're going to be in London any time soon and 
you're interested in visiting antiques stores, this book
is a great book that gives good details to the flea and
antiques market in London.

Any of you have gone antiquing or flea market shopping
around the world?  If so, where have you gone and where
are your favorite places?
