Fair
Goblin market/fair
is a market held in different places every time, catering for the non-humans. Nightingale likened it to a nazareth (police slang for some kind of illegal market)[1] or a shebeen, and said it had been a tradition of a demi-monde activity in the fringes of the old horse fairs and markets.[2]

While researching in the Folly's mundane library, Peter Grant found a reference to Goblin Fayres and hidden markets at St. Bartholomew's feast as early as 1534.[3]

Peter and Lesley attended a market inside a Victorian terraced house on Villa Road, near Brixton.[4] Another one was at Athlone Street in Kentish Town.[5]

The goblin market on Villa RoadEdit

Peter and Lesley attended a market inside a Victorian terraced house on Villa Road, near Brixton. The entrance was firstly through the door in the half basement and then out in the back garden. In the garden there was a crisp autumn afternoon, despite it being winter on Villa Road. There they met Effra and Oberon. They also spoke to a goth girl called Hyacinth, who knew much about figurines. Sometimes she does buissness with Kevin Nolan, buying things from Unbreakable Empire Pottery Company.[6]

A young man with ginger hair and a very old tweed suit sold books. Among them a copy of Samuel Erasmus Wolfe's Exotica, from 1911, and a 18th-century reprint of Méric Casaubon's On Credulity and Incredulity in Things natural, civil and divine. He had no copy of the Principia. [7]

Peter and Lesley went to a market at Athlone Street in Kentish Town.[8]
