Halloween Events at Wood Street Indoor Market in Walthamstow
Wood Street Indoor Market is holding some special Halloween events. I'm a bit late on this one (because I was on holiday, then away for work) so you've missed the first Costume Clinic, but there's lots more going on this Wednesday and next Saturday:
"Wood Street Indoor Market in East London is a unique historical market, and is only a 10 minute walk from Walthamstow Village in E17 or a 2 minute walk from Wood Street overground Station.
This is the place to find cheap second hand furniture, antiques, vintage clothing, and an amazing collection of retro & vintage music, vinyl and shellacs. There is also picture framing, cake decoration and various other Arts and Craft shops, even a shop called "Mothers Ruin" selling artisan liqueurs, that take a year of steeping in gin or vodka...In all there are about 50 units to walk around, and a great little café that does a good old fashioned fry up!
The market has recently begun to find interest from artists and makers who are seeing the potential in the niche retail spaces and in the community of collectors and antique dealers. The quirky indoor markets were originally built as a cinema, but now they have a reputation among shoppers and antique and record collectors as one of London’s secret gems!
