This month saw the arrival of John Barrett to the market! John specialises in Ephemera with a passion for press photography dating around 1930 and 1940s/2nd World War Era.
John has been working in the world of Ephemera for the past 12 years and has accumulated a broad knowledge of his subject. When asked, John described himself as ‘the GP rather than the specialist’ to Ephemera. His stall is definitely worth a visit; here a just a few examples of what he had to offer this week:

Happy New Year to all Dealers and Collectors!!
Looking forward to 2018 bringing in a new chapter in the history of Charing Cross Collectors Market starting with the installation of new signage during the month of January. This will make the access to the market far more visible to assist you in locating us.
This year we are pleased to confirm that we shall be keeping you all updated on our planned activities on the blog section of our website on a fortnightly basis. Our first initiative is to feature one of our stalls, providing some useful and interesting information on the items being offered together with relevant links.
Happy collecting and best wishes!
