Our first Deptford market event happened in November 2019 to launch our project. We invited people to select the objects they would like to see by voting for their favourite one. We chose to highlight the domestic treasures over three room areas: The Living Room, The Kitchen and the Children’s Room.
We invited the public to write their memories from the pictures we had photographed from the archive. Have a look at the pictures and memories from the event below.
The most popular items were the pressure cooker, the cassette tape and the snakes and ladders board games according to room type.
” we still use these in Nigeria for religious events”
” we used to make our own out of wood and sticks”
” My mum still has one of these..still relevant in Nigeria”
