Out of all of London, I’d probably say Greenwich is one of my favourite little corners. It oozes brilliant historical charm, the most fantastic market and boutique shops and never ceases to make me feel like I’ve bounded on horseback off of the set of Les Mis (probably because that’s where part was filmed- numero uno film boffin here). Nonetheless, there’s something I always enjoy about visiting. Having lived rather close since I was small, I spent my teen years picnicking in the park during the summer, soaking up naval history at the National Maritime Museum and trudging through the hilly park in order to reach the Observatory and appreciate the somewhat stunning view of the city.
On Easter Monday my family and I paid a somewhat impromptu visit to the town, and sat down to a pretty hearty breakfast at The Rivington; which consisted of some pretty bad ass fruit juices, doorstop sized toast and equally funky eggs- before taking a wander down the road to the market. Although some of our favourite shops were shut (read: the board game and marble shop) it was lovely to wind around the bustling stalls- and even pick up a bargain or two (I managed to find a pretty well priced sheepskin Del Boy coat for £20) before heading back home and catching up.
One of the things I love most about visiting the market is discovering new and exciting sellers. Now, Martha’s Store may not be Greenwich based but new and exciting she most definitely is. I first met photographer Martha late last summer on a shoot for Audrey Grace Boutique (and having realized I’d actually researched her for my photography A Level project felt a little starstruck). However more recently Martha has devled into the depths of vintage accessories, and has since set up a gorgeous online boutique, Martha’s Store. Her gorgeous shop stocks everything from stunning 1960’s vanity cases, vintage Chanel jewellery to modern vintage clips- all of which I’m pretty taken by- and seriously recommend you pay a little visit…
