One of my fave online sites is pretaportabello - it's the online version of the infamous Portobello Market in London & also sells favourites from other markets such as Spitalfields (London), Camden, Brick Lane (London) & also Sydney, Australia!
It's an online showcase of quirky, original clothes and one off pieces. They have a great mailing list that's well worth signing up to & be updated with their occasional special offers (at the moment it's £1 postage - always nice to hear!)
Aswell as girly dresses, cute blouses & coats and handmade jewellery they also stock menswear, underwear and have a great vintage section. But the icing on the cake is the 'Lets Trade' section, whereby you can haggle online with the market stall owner - just like you would in a real market! It's different and it's fun - a welcome change to online
buying i think!
Below are just a few of my favourite items available online at the moment. Check out the link above & enjoy!
