Mary Brown (aka Portobello Mary) was a well-known figure at Portobello’s Saturday market, living and working there from 1957 until her death last year. She left behind a considerable amount of stock she had collected over the years – and some of that is available to buy online.
The Portobello Mary auction is being run by London-based Auction Atrium online and the eBay-style auction ends over today and tomorrow (March 4th and 5th). I’ve just had a look and many of the pieces have low bids or indeed no bids, so there’s still time to pick up a bargain. In fact, the art deco purse pictured here currently has a price of absolutely nothing – so just £1 could secure it.
