This Saturday was very busy in the Portobello Antiques Market. It was nearly as frantic as the first day at a good fair. I practically had to ask potential customers to form a queue! It is a problem when you get three customers at once. Wanting to give each collector the time and attention they deserve becomes difficult, especially as all our stands are small and my colleague Annie was indisposed with a cold. Customers will enjoy browsing better if they come before 11am or after 1pm. The earlier the better, we open at 7.30.
