This was truly a buying trip.  We visited a different antique market, show or venue each day. 

And we came up with incredible finds that included 3000 year old Persian coins, Phoenician and Roman glass, Victorian wares and materials that are just so incredibly beautiful to me.

Markets that we visited included Spitalfields, Peterborough, Covent Gardens and the Sudbury market in Kempton.

We also visited the antique shopping district of Porto Bello Road in London and traveled by train to the small town of Lewes.

And how could I visit London and not go to Harrod's?  Or the Louis Vuitton store where I bought my first piece - a keychain - oh so long ago.  And my favorite, favorite, favorite perfume store - Jo Malone?

We got a little cultural, too.  Visiting the Victorian & Albert Museum where we saw the David Bowie is exhibit on its' opening day.  And the Tate Museum where we took in 5 Picassos and numerous pieces by Andy Warhol, to name just a few.

But by no means was in sun and fun.  The temperature never rose above 28 degrees and the wind was brutal.  It snowed every day... and we never saw the sun.    But that did not hamper my quest to find materials and findings that will be appearing in my jewelry line!
