Had a great day in Marylebone with Katie, guiding me around the wonderful local charity shops, full of unique treasures at affordable prices and wonderful additions to anyone’s wardrobe. Katie was extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of where to look, what was a good buy and what suited me best. Beautiful venue, bursting with gorgeous unique shops of which I will certainly be visiting again. Many thanks Katie, will look forward to the next tour!
