London is one of the great cities in the world in which to go shopping for antiques and almost every day of the week there is an antique market in which to find them. Here is a list of the weekly markets and my tips for shopping at them:
Monday: The Jubilee Market Hall in Covent Garden has markets every day of the week, but Monday is antique day. The market opens early (5am) but on my latest trip I arrived at about 9:00 am and many dealers were just starting to set up; from talking to several dealers I gather that during the early morning hours they are busy selling amongst themselves. The items available are smalls: silver, china, decorative objets, jewelry, clothing.
