Portobello Rocks!

I Love Markets - Portobello Rocks Pop-Up Flyer
Portobello definitely rocks! More pop-up dates announced!
The legendary Portobello Market is synonymous with fashion and all things bang-on trend, so there was no better place to hold our West-side I Love Markets pop-up. It's reputation ensures a continuous flow of both tourists and locals, so all was set for a great day at Portobello Rocks! 
Some may of feared the rain as it came down hard on Friday, but Saturday thankfully stayed dry and stall holders were protected by the Westway and hassle-free gazebos, so no worries there. Market visitors were immediately intrigued by the bunting and balloons and the stall holders were fabulous, so let the shopping commence!
