I found the handbags
It turned out that the handbag guys had switched markets – from Portobello to Petticoat Lane. I didn’t find the ones that look like high-heeled shoes, but there were plenty of corset model for myself and some to sell on Tradera.
In just two hours I filled the big striped bag I had brought to bring home my shopped items in. I’m happy with the trip now.
Later on I strolled down Charing Cross Road, but hardly dared to enter the book shops. It’s easy to get carried away, and I don’t have the space in my bag. Also I’m probably getting close to Ryanair’s weight limit for checked in luggage.
What I do need to find are birthday presents for P and K. That will be tomorrow’s main goal.
Now I’m sitting at a Caffe Nero on Strand, relaxing for an hour or so before the afternoon’s event starts: The Lion King. I’m happy I got hold of a ticket, and am really looking forward to the show.

Update: The show was absolutely great! Very creative costume design, talented actors, great music. The only bad thing was that since it was an afternoon show there were a lot of kids, some of them too young to concentrate on the show. A lot of talking and moving around around me, which was a bit of a disturbance.
