A few clever and talented friends have mine have recently started a business selling an eclectic range of furniture and small pieces for the home and are currently frequenting markets in south London.
It was started by Charlie, who's home I featured a while ago on my easter weekend post. Charlie has spent the past 9 years working as prop buyer for film and TV, she has kitted everything from Bleak House to Dr Who's Tardis so its safe to say she knows where to find the good stuff. The idea for the business started as Charlie kept finding amazing and unique pieces on her travels whilst kitting out sets but now instead of leaving these finds behind Charlie has been busy collecting and you can find them all on the 'Magpie' market stall.

The stool has everything from deck chairs to tea cosys and most of the pieces are mid century... or there abouts. However there is no hard and fast rule to what you might find as Charlie simply buys items she thinks are beautiful, interesting and useful.
Along with Dan and Wendy 'Magpie' are covering a number of markets in South London, to find out where they will be next check out their Facebook page.
As well as everything you find at the market the Magpie gang can also source things privately, so if you are after something particular, maybe an art deco chair or a mid century table lamp, they will be the people to find it for you.
