North, South, East & West

Once upon a time in Arcadia and most likely on a Thursday, ladies and gentlemen visiting their Capital City of London were prone to get lost.  In order to find themselves again they were advised to look out for weather vanes which stood upon the roofs of houses and other buildings, including this one of a Pike which was a popular seller at Gamages Department Store in Holborn.

Should you be a lady or a gentleman visiting your Capital City of London and find yourself lost you are advised to search out your nearest weather vane and head in an easterly direction where you will find me at my stall in Spitalfields Antiques Market in Commercial Street in the district of London known as E.1.  There, I trade between the hours of 8am and 3pm on Thursdays only.  It is a place of refuge where you may buy Vintage Fishing Tackle for the Soul, drink tea and find yourself once again.
