Deptford Market

It is a mission to go down to Deptford and trawl painstakingly through piles of tat which let’s face it are dead person’s bric a brac. 


If you can’t find what you want anywhere else it will probably be at Deptford. It is a reliable resource in one’s little black book for sourcing anything weird from black and white holiday photos to birdbaths. And yesterday I went there to find a drill because a decent, new one would have cost a bomb. So, I thought I could find a good second hand option and I did- a good Dewalt cordless!



Here is a list of all the things I have ever bought at Deptford Market.

A drill

A keepsakes book from 1930

A Satchel

A first aid handbook

Some ageing sheet music

A magnifying glass

A knickerbocker glory glass

1 pair of boots

A picnic basket

An old tennis racquet plus stretcher

A snow white snowglobe

A joblot of photoframes.

…I can’t recall anything else. But there’s definitely been some bigger things because I remember struggling back from there arms laden.
