    Tattoos and body piercings: Go for it!

    by Rhondaj Written May 5, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Always wanted a tattoo or a body piercing? Or more if you've already got 'em? Camden had more than one of these shops, so there you go!

    What to buy: What you pierce, or what you get tattooed upon thy body doesn't matter to me!

    What to pay: Don't ask me---I didn't get any!

    Past Times: Fun, Frilly and Girlie things

    by garridogal Updated Jun 4, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Discovered this fun company in London. They're speciality is reproductions of items from times past or in that style. Luckily, they have a website and will send you catalogues w/prices in Dollars.

    What to buy: Edwardian, Victorian, Chintz, Art Deco, Toille, you get the picture, right?

    NOT for those who favor modern and Spartan decor or manly men. You've been warned.

    What to pay: Depends on how much you buyl.

    You could buy this!

    Covent Garden: A London Must

    by garridogal Written Jun 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You must go to Covent Garden when in London. You must enjoy the street performers and you must think of Eliza Doolittle!

    What to buy: Pretty much every and anything. Unfortunately, this has turned into one of those shopping areas with some stores that you can find here, in the States.

    However, across from the main Arcade(?) we found a fun Flea Market type set up with imports from all over the world. And, when travelling to London, don't you want to buy Indian Pillow covers? I did....

    Picture Eliza Doolittle here Pretty glass covered gallery Shopping awaits.  Are you game? He said he wanted to touch my hair.

    Portobello Market: If you can brave the tourists...?

    by Kiwigirlie Updated Feb 24, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Much better than Camden Market, Portbello has all that you could want and more. Antiques, books, gifts, jewellery, vintage clothing, fruit & veg, music (the pirate kind) and the odd shop that sell anything and everything.
    The main market is only on Saturdays and it can get pretty swamped with people so make sure you go early or on a rainy day.
    I like the atmosphere of the place and it's less commercialised than Camden Market. And there is a number of really nice organic and vegetrian snack shops - which I always visit.

    What to buy: Whenever I've had to get a gift for someone I'll look there. If you want to get a little something different, at the western end (towards Notting Hill) there are a few kitcsh shops that sell very hip t-shirts and nick nacks like bags, shower curtains, cool cards and wrapping paper.
    If you are really into antiques, it's worth checking the market out - GO early!!
    And it's great if you are into deejaying or alternative music.
    Just beware of your bag here though. This is a crowded area and you can be an easy target for pick pockets!

    What to pay: Depends what you want to buy - you can spend a few pounds or a few hundred pounds

    Crowds of people but oodles of fun!

    Harrods: Harrods

    by Tom_Fields Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This is the world's most famous upscale department store. Located just south of Hyde Park, near Royal Albert Hall, this is so pricey that I didn't actually bother going in. But I couldn't resist snapping a photo.

    What to buy: Shopping in London is very expensive, especially right now. But the selection is about equal to what you can find anywhere else.

    What to pay: If you need to ask, then it's too much.

    Harrods, in London

    Devonshire Road - Chiswick: shopping jewel tucked away!

    by CheekyDee Written Mar 16, 2006

    This isn't really a shop more than it is a road. Devonshire road is just off of Chiswick High Street, it's a little jewel of a street with lovely shops, cafe's, restaurants and a wide array of stores. It's small, quaint, and non commercial which is quite nice really. Le Trompette, a very famous French restaurant is situated there, along with some wonderful furniture and clothing shops. It really is lovely and very un commercial and mainstream.

    What to buy: Books, clothes, food, furniture, stuff!

    What to pay: anywhere from £.3.00 to hundreds of £££££
