Bejewelled footwear, fabulous crockery, historic maps and rare curiosities were all to be found at the first Pop-Up Vintage Fair in Canary Wharf.
Stallholders battled the heavy rain on Wednesday to set out their wares.
Here are some of the amazing items we found.
This incredible owl necklace was made by Jess Lelong from Lelong Designs in north London. His father Jean set up the company in 1960 and all the pieces are inspired by the Art Deco and Art Nouveau period with semi-precious stones sourced from Paris.
Pip Handy from Newport Pagnell said these vintage hair crimpers circa 1920 were an unusual find.
Sally Yeoman found these illusion glasses in a charity shop and got a shock when she washed them and discovered a naughty secret in their bases.
"They are very, very rare and quite rude," she said.
Marie Donawa of MariCar Vintage and Modern Collectables in Bedfordshire used this 80-year-old iron as a schoolgirl growing up in Antigua. "We had uniforms with box pleats and I used it to starch them. I don't mind selling it as someone else will get a bit of history."
This harlequin tea set was discovered by Sue Bennett from Dagenham business Bennett's Collectables, who started antique hunting as a hobby.
She said of the market: "I'll do it again but hopefully the weather will be a bit better."

The Vintage Fair will return to Canary Wharf on Wednesday, June 8, July 13, August 10 and September 14.
