I wish that I could just make up my mind

This saturday just gone I popped into London for the day with my friend, Melina.  We'd heard about the American Apparel Flea Market and figured it would be a good day out.  After missing 4/5 trains (I know, I know) we eventually got to London and went to Camden first with the sole intention of getting some bang bang chicken.  For those of you who have never had bang bang chicken, you haven't lived. Next time you're in Camden, walk up from the tube station towards the Lock, and when you get to All Saints, turn right where there are a load of food stalls.  The first one you come to there will be a guy with a low, buzzy voice who will call you 'bruv' and throw chicken in your face.  TAKE THE CHICKEN AND EXPERIENCE HEAVEN ON EARTH.

Anyway, after looking around the market for a while we faffed about on the tube, eventually getting to Liverpool Street and spent another half hour dawdling around trying to find brick lane, where the flea market was.  We got caught up in a few shops along the way, like Urban Outfitters, Whistles, a load of vintage stores, the Lomography store, and a shoe shop where I came sooo close to buying some creepers for £85, so glad I didn't now, as I found some on eBay for £60 which I'm debating about buying!

After getting distracted to no end we found the Flea Market and as it was quite late (7/8pm) there were hardly any queues, took us 10 mins at the most to get in, and it was quite empty inside, so there was no frantic buying rush.  I ended up buying two things which I'll post about when I can get hold of them (stupidly left them at my Dads house).  The market was pretty good, although the reductions weren't THAT good, the items were average and there weren't even any socks, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to go; plus looooads of the stock is damaged, so if you're going, make sure you check each item thoroughly, because you don't want to spend £20 on a nice blouse, if you're going to get home with a mighty big burn hole on the back (which nearly happened to my friend!).

All in all, it was a good day and I'm happy with my purchases, and that I didn't actually spend as much as I thought I would, I even got away with a childs ticket(;  I'll post about my purchases when I can!
