Meeting a monster down Broadway Market

.

Good morning!

Just a quick note to say that I’m not going to be trading at Broadway Market this coming Saturday – I’m terribly sorry if there were any readers who were thinking of coming down to see me…

.

In the meantime, I’d like to share with you one of my favourite pictures from my iPhone: we took it a while back, about a month ago I think.

Meet “Beastie“. He was promoting a show at Chats Palace. – Isn’t this like the best pull-on costume ever?! (Apart from Micky Mouse & gang in DisneyLand that I’d chase down, squeeze & cuddle until they say no.)

.

We get all sorts walking down the market, sometimes to promote shows/ venues like this or to hand out company leaflets/ balloons. There’s also some fundraisers for charities. And actually, such particular fundraising group that I liked seeing down the market was the famous Pearly Kings and Queens called “the Pearlies” with their black outfits decorated with rows of hand-sewn pearl buttons. Very London! :)

  6. Petoskystone, I’m glad you agree! As for the eyes…, hm, no idea… Perhaps in the neck under his big nose??

  7. Beastie, Pearly Kings and Queens, a Johnny Depp lookalike… you certainly work in an interesting place! As for not being at the market this Saturday… well, I have some exciting news. I’m moving back to London in January! So see you down the market in a few months :D :D xx

  14. Thank you Tamami. Happy to see you there.

    Is Bethal Green the nearest tube station for Broadway Market ?

  16. Great! Yes, I think Bethnal Green is the nearest in terms of Ldn underground. – And then there’s a bit of a walk, about 15 minutes from there to the market. – I’m in the middle-ish of the market by the way, opposite no. 49!! C u there!!!!!!!!!

  17. The story of Will Rogers’ Drought Relief Tour might be the most incredible “Once Upon a Time in Arkansas” tale this season. It might also be the least-known. Why is the story of a traveling one-man show more impressive than that of a century-old river monster? Because I know it’s true.
