Blue Door

In spite of the bad weather, Portobello antiques market was lively last Saturday. Unfortunately we still get women asking for ‘Blue Door, where is it?’ The film ‘Notting Hill has a lot to answer for. There never was a bookshop with a blue door, it was just a film, the two Spanish girls looked crestfallen. Parking is a problem for dealers because our car park has been sold off for property development. Portobello has become too smart. Dealers keep running out to find metres. Parking is free after 1.30. Saturdays will be colder but a lot less crowded so a good time to buy. It means a dealer has the time to tell you something of the cultural climate surrounding an item you are interested in. We all love sharing our small passions.
