Prodavaji vse mozne, od zahradnickeho nacini pres vintage obleceni, po designersky nabytek nebo sperky. Skvelou atmosferu trhu podkresluji poulicni muzikanti a hlavne trhovci vykrikujici klasicke ‘Everything for a fiver’ a ¬†‘What a bargain!’¬†tedy ‘Vse za petku’ a ‘Skvela koupe!’ a dalsi.

During the week quiet Columbia street in London’s East End comes alive every Sunday, rain or shine, with stalls offering endless amount of plants of all possible colors, sizes and types. There are also small shops in pretty Victorian houses, most of them closed during the week, but bursting at the seams with locals and many tourists on Sundays, selling everything from vintage clothes to gardening tools and designer furniture or jewellery. The great atmosphere of the market is accentuated by buskers and most of all by hawkers shouting loudly classical ‘Everything for a fiver!’, ‘What a bargain!’ and more. Everyone seems to be enjoying this.
