Camden/ Stable Market

Dear Diary,

Sundays are for getting some rest and for doing things that you can`t do on weekdays. So, I decided to go to Camden and particularly to  the Stable Market. Today`s photographer is Renate Marcus and I want to thank her for being patient and extra creative despite the adverse weather conditions. Not only was the weather rainy, it was also windy and cold making the shooting difficult but the result is rewarding. 

The Camden markets are a number of adjoining large retail markets in Camden.  Among products sold on the stalls are crafts, clothing, bric-a-brac, and fast food. It is the fourth-most popular visitor attraction in London, attracting approximately 100,000 people each weekend. The markets originally operated on Sundays only, which continues to be the main trading day. Opening later extended to Saturdays for most of the market. A number of traders, mainly those in fixed premises, operate throughout the week, although the weekend remains the peak period.

 In common with most of the other Camden markets the Stables Market has many clothes stalls. It is also the main focus for furniture in the markets. Household goods, decorative, ethnically-influenced items, and second-hand items or 20th-century antiques, many of them hand-crafted, are among the wares. There are also clothing and art pieces for alternative sub-cultures, such as goths and cybergoths. These shops include Black Rose, which caters for goths, with items such as coffin-shaped handbags, and Cyberdog, which houses much cyber-style "neon" PVC and rubber clothing.

Many pics, huh? But I wanted to show you what a great time we had there and how good a photographer Renate is. For more about her work, click here: http://streetcoquette.tumblr.com/
