Spitalfields Antiques Market...

It was a busy week away from the blog, however, Adrian and Myself did manage to visit Spitalfields Antiques Market on Thursday in the heart of a sunny and warm East London. The market was opened way back by Queen Victoria as the wall plaque told us and offers just about anything you could imagine from jewellery to skeletons. We found two gentlemen sitting and enjoying some rather amazing looking Fish N’ Chips, so after a brief enquiry we headed off to ‘Poppies’ just around the corner for our share of the delights. ‘Pops’ as he is known worked all his life in the ‘Fish and Chips’ business, Pops believed that he could make the best fish and chips in London’s East End and bought the best fish from Billingsgate, the fluffiest crispest chips and classics such as jellied eels. Pops also has created a feeling of the past in recreating the era, of 1940′s and 1950′ reminders of the past. Poppies are based in Hanbury Street E1 and provided us both with a fish and chips meal to be remembered!
