Market, Market

Posted in Zen by yoshizen on January 12, 2014


Somewhere in a corner of London but on the another planet of Harrods,

still far behind of Tesco, even below Lidl, or charity shop —— still needs

to pay money = is a place for shopping = an open air market.  


Some of the Market is famous in their antic collection and specialized

dealer often shows very interesting rare items etc.

So that, I used to go those market to look for interesting old cameras

or alarm clock etc etc. —– but, for lots of people, the things they buy

is not a joke or for fun, it is a serious needs in their daily life.


I know a guy —— from top to bottom, he was wearing and using

the things came from the market.  And the another guy bought his

camera all from the market. (When I tested those lenses he bought

for £10, amazingly they are working perfect and image was sharp.) !

( Incidentally, I found and bought Canon 420EZ flash = may be

5 years old, for £10 —– seemed to be working well.) 


Once I was wearing a mountain boots I bought from Charity Shop

for £5.   —– out of this boots, I’ve got many enjoyable walk.  

So, I guess, a person who bought second-hand boots here with 

pathetically cheap price doesn’t necessary mean having pathetic life.  


Far from it, few pound toy for the kids could be a luxury and

a big fun to him or her.   Happiness is not a matter of price.





Though, to the people in the another planet, they may not have any idea

what’s going on behind the buildings.


And still, the days come and the days go. The Life continues.

    Interesting marked. Even if people have different reasons to shop there, it is always a good thing that these kind of things get a new life = much better than to be trown away.

      That’s right. —– though, it’s always some kind of dubious
      smell —– some might be stolen goods and so on 🙂
