London – Camden Lock

May 24, 2010

Camden Lock, Camden Market – THE place if you’re looking for trends, one-of-a-kind handmades, weird accessories and inspiration.

Say it with a candle

There is so much said and written about Camden that I will most probably not be original at all. Probably the only thing I could share here is a tip that saved my budget a big one – HAVE A LIST. Not only it’ll prevent unplanned buys but also will keep your eye sharp. I was hoping to get quite  a few things during the UK trip and I must say it was a great success! Everything you might want IS there, it’s just a matter of how hard you’re looking for it.

Along with my quest I had a very inspiring conversation with a local silversmith and guess what? She loved my ring (the first silver ring I ever made, some pictures of it here).


If you’re there with your camera, don’t try to sneak-pic – most of the sellers don’t like it. I always asked. Most of them said no.


I honestly don’t know what else to say here – it’s something you have to see yourself I guess.

P.S. Girls, lacy dresses, polka-doted thighs, hats, fake Ray-Bans and Oxford shoes are totally taking over this summer ;-)
