A VINTAGE flea market has opened at The Round Chapel, Powerscroft Road. Dusty Fingers and its 30-strong army of traders will be holding a market selling unique and retro treasures - including furniture, fashion, housewares, hi-fi equipment and collectables - for shoppers to get their soon-to-be grubby hands on. There are food stalls from Hackney Homemade Hanoi Kitchen, Chatsworth Road’s Cakey Muto plus there is wood-fired pizza by Streetzza, as well as bars offering drinks such as plum punch and spice cider. Music will be distinctly retro, covering the 1950s to 1980s with funk, disco, soul and rare groove. Dusty Fingers have been operating for three years, working in Old Spitalfields, York Hall and Stoke Newington markets. Carolina Smilas, who co-founded Dusty Fingers with her partner James Shepherd, said: “We live in Hackney and we chose to hold the market here because Hackney hasn’t had anything like this before.” Dusty Fingers Vintage Night Market will be held on 18 December, 2.30-9.30pm, at The Round Chapel, Powerscroft Road, Clapton, London, E5 OPU. £1 entry fee.
