So ages ago I picked up a ton of art magazines left on the street. I'm now selling these on ebay, because I never REALLY wanted them, I just hate things being thrown away, to free up space, and get a bit of money. One of them was a UK!Vogue Best-Kept-Secrets sort of guide. I pruned its contents down to London, things that looked even vaguely useful for 99%ers such as self, and things that looked reasonably priced. As a caveat though, some of the vintage and other stores are included as a look-but-don't-touch-AND-NEVER-BUY-EVER experiential!kind of thing. Some do /actually/ look doable, or at least like nice things for when parents visit. Google names for more info.
