There aren't many things that beat a day leisurely trawling through the Portobello Road markets for some fab vintage finds - all while enjoying an icecream on a warm summer's day. But it's not always sunny in London (you don't say!?) and sometimes you don't always have the luxury of a whole day to wander up and down the little streets, trying on pretty dresses and antique jewellery.

So with this in mind, the Cooper sisters - Lisette, Victoria and Georgina - have set up PretAPortobello.com, so you can have a slice of the Portobello action from the comfort of your own home. Pieces from up-and-coming designers can be found alongside vintage treasures, and you can even barter with stall owners to get a true-blue market experience. Look out for Spitalfields market retailers and others to be added soon...
