London's Portobello Market: A trove for treasure hunters

If vintage of any kind is your thing, London's Portobello market is your hunting ground. There's anything from antique sporting goods to porcelain and silver, from painting to exquisite vintage clothes.

I am a producer for the TODAY show in London and I've always loved the abundance of vintage clothes that London has to offer, but going to Portobello can be bewildering unless you know where to start looking. In this video I'll take you to a magic little corner of the market where you can find some real treasures -- without getting crushed in the process!
