So your walking around MCM London Expo and looking for some unique merchandise to spend your hard earned cash on. There are plenty of them so where do you start? We had the same problem, stalls are littered throughout the convention, many with tempting deals and some with hand-crafted items. Our journey was fruitful, we found some of the best stalls at MCM Expo and have culminated them here for your perusal.
We met a lovely lady called Sarah who was selling a selection of intricately made top hats and steam punk attire. She also added that she ran a delightful website for cosplayers who bought or sold with NO middle man, aka no commision if you sold something.
Basically you sell your new, second-hand, vintage, antique and retro costumes, clothes, accessories, fabric, props, jewellery, haberdashery, millinery, lace and lots more.
