My Favourite Kind of Junk Shop

I stumbled upon this unnamed junk shop in East London this week, while I was on a mission to track down and photograph public libraries for work.  I couldn’t resist going in, although I did manage to refrain from walking out again laden down by purchases!


While charity shops like Oxfam and Cancer Research are conveniently located and have a carefully edited selection of clothes and crockery, there’s nothing quite like the buzz of getting off the well-worn high street and tracking down something special buried beneath the junk!  

 
  • Now that looks like an old school junk shop, the kind I used to haunt in 1983! I wish there were more of them left.x
