Pete Doherty opens second-hand shop in Camden Town

13 August 2013, 10:44 | Written by Natalie Archer

Last week, VICE writer Dan Wilkinson found a hidden gem (or rock) in the midst of the market stalls and cyber goths in London’s Camden Town, a shop currently run by Pete Doherty selling items, rarities and general bits-and-bobs previously owned by the Libertines and Babyshambles musician himself.

Doherty’s second-hand store is called Doherty & Martin: The Rag & Bone Collection and sells “rare” items from the artist’s “personal collection”.

According to Wilkinson, the tat store sells “nothing of worth, for prices that are extraordinary”. Examples being £100 cigarette butts, £200 wrapping paper and a £500 cardboard cut out of the Libertine.

The writer went on to describe the experience as “spending the entire afternoon alone with Pete and his girlfriend, watching him rummage though his own stuff and take a nap on a typewriter. ”

Read the full blog post over at Noisey, with the shop’s website here. Babyshambles’ new album is out in September.
