Have a look inside the Bermondsey Furniture Project, which sells reclaimed goods sourced from flea markets across the UK and France. Everything in the store has been ‘upcycled’ or, in other words, carefully renovated through processes such as sanding, painting or waxing. It has a great selection of furniture, including sets of dining chairs, bar stools, cabinets and bedside tables. The shop also sells mirrors, paintings and home accessories, such as an adorable ‘trio’ of multicoloured enamel jugs.

You’ll find the best bargains at this antiques market early in the morning. Nestled beside a car boot sale, this market has been going since the 1950s (although it has moved from its old spot in Caledonian Road) and the antiques traders here have good knowledge. Shop here for second-hand goods to decorate your home, from vintage kitchenware to retro ornaments. The market’s eye-watering 6am start is allegedly a reflection of the ancient law of marché ouvert,abolished in 1995, when stolen goods were legally allowed to be sold between sunrise and sunset.
