Yesterday morning I went to the Camberwell markets, where suburban families cleaning out their garages and shifty professional scavengers stand side by side to sell junk that’s too worthless for second hand stores, too heavy for eBay or too overpriced for Gumtree.

My purchases were:

Anodised aluminium cocktail skewers, for those times when toothpicks just don’t cut it.

A model of the Empire State Building that’s also a pencil sharpener!

Vintage 1970s figurines of early James Bond characters, including Bond, Dr No, Auric Goldfinger, and some other guy. It’s probably a good thing that they didn’t have a little plastic Honey Rider as played by Ursula Andress, because I’d have made unseemly sounds and frightened the vendor .
