For me, shopping is my favorite sport. It requires time, effort and excellent judgement in order to strategically choose which items are worth the money you are investing in them. I find it oddly satisfying to spend hours and hours shopping just to find one or two pieces that are the "best deal ever."
As someone who basks in the sport of shopping, nothing can compare to Portobello Market in the Notting Hill district of London. Stall after stall of antiques, clothes, jewelry, pastries and fresh fruit line both sides of more than two miles of Portobello Street.
After three hours in the market I walked away with a bag full of clothes and accessories, a happy tummy, and a wallet only £15 lighter.
Shopping in Portobello Market = SUCCESS
