One person's junk is another person's treasure
On the first Saturday of every month the Barnes Collectors' Market is held in Barnes Village, South-West London. A variety of stallholders set up on the banks of the beautiful Barnes pond, selling anything from toys to tins; cutlery to clothes. It's like an upmarket car boot sale, but without the cars and with a pretty backdrop to enjoy instead.

It's a lovely way to spend a sunny Saturday morning and you never know what you might pick up there - remember one person's junk is another person's treasure, and if you're feeling brave you can try your luck at haggling. If you need to grab some cash, there's an ATM just across the street.

Don't expect to find anyone there if the weather's bad, but if it's a nice day then the green will be packed with stalls and shoppers alike. If you are interested in taking a stall, contact Simon of Barnes Auctions at: info@barnesauctions.com.

If you're arriving to the Collectors' Market by car, there is parking on the nearby streets, or if you're travelling by public transport from London, you can get a bus from Hammersmith that stops right by the pond. Barnes over ground train station is close by too.

You could also combine it with a visit to the Barnes Farmers Market, which is held just over the road every Saturday from 10am to 2pm.
