Haynes Lane Market is a facinating maze of bric-a-brac, there's so much here, it's almost too much to take in!
Each area of the market is run by a seller who has chosen the stuff on sale, some are themed - books, toys, clothes, homeware - others are just a big heap of everyting.
I think you might struggle to find a bargain here, the sellers have a pretty good idea of the market value of their items.
I have been here a number of times and find it a great place to come when in the mood for wandering around not sure what to buy and looking for a bargain with a difference.
Bric a brac and the likes in a number of different stalls that seem to blend into one. Keep looking through all the numerous household goods from clothing, books, glasses, records, pictures, etc. you can look and look and look. Can be a little tricky to find but definitely worth a walk through when you do. A little treasure in Crystal Palace which now has a number of antique stores on the street.
Haynes Market seems like the perfect place to get lost in for a few hours. We found it by accident walking down this small road off Westow Road. It is like a whole new world of the past when you walk through the narrow doorway. A word of advice, do not take small children in there as they do not like people picking up their goods as most of it is antiques. They've got something for everyone in there, even if you do not like antiques. I saw a bunch of comics from my youth, a few action figures, tonnes of clothes, books and memorabilia scattered all over the place. The Haynes Market is a maze but a fun one. There is stairs from the first floor to the ground floor where you will discover a few more stalls to browse from. My friends got to wrapped up in the market that we spend ages in there looking at things, it's just amazing.
Haynes Market is what a market in London should be like!
You need to keep your map handy to find this place, I got a bit lost because I didn't notice the sign guiding me down an inconspicuous street. This place is truly a hidden treasure! There are book, music, clothing, and even furniture second hand stores all in one little yard without the exorbitant prices of vintage shops in the city center. A great place to get lost in, since the markets occupy some unconventional spaces. My favorite find of the day was a late 19th or early 20th century print of Dickens' Christmas Books for 2 quid!
Another insane Crystal Palace feature. This ramshackle building invites you in through a narrow lane that seems sinister but then opens up to a claustrophobic maze of all forms of consumerist junk. Nothing at all useful except that one thing you didn't know you needed. In my case a Dyran Duran 7" and some silver plated soup spoons.
A totally unbelievable flea market - of the like that you just don't find in London these days. There are records, books, second-hand clothes, antiques, palm/tarot readers. You name it you'll find it here.
adore this place. i go there whenever i can. love the feel of an old and lived book so imagine my delight at this place!!
bought also some toys for my son! a vintage hand sawed horse which he loves. recommend this place to every explorer.
Ssshhh! Don't tell everyone, this really is an Aladdin's Cave of undiscovered treasures. Friendly traders and full of character. I love it.
