Summer in the city - Spitalfields and Brick lane

So exactly a week ago we had a lovely bank holiday here in the Uk to celebrate the end of our summer:) Surprisingly it wasn't raining, which is usual, so some friends and I decided to head east to the area around Liverpool Street station.
Spitalfields is an old undercover Victorian market, and is one of my favourites.
Not the cheapest mind, but really good for a look if you like antique and vintage wears with some interesting shops and cafe's around the outside too:) 


Absolute Vintage is a fantastic vintage shop around the corner, if you fancy spending a few hours getting lost amongst the rails I recommend this delight on Hanbury Street:)

Another Gem of a vintage shop, book shop and coffee shop all rolled into one. Bit pricey but the brownies are to die for:) And the cute coffee guy makes them himself.

The east of London I would love to explore a bit more in the future, anyone got any tips for cool places?
Hope you all had a spiffing weekend and a Happy Monday:)
