Something For Everyone, Paddy's Market

When chatting to the lady running this stall she mentioned that the stall owner had just signed a £35,000 year long lease. I also read recently that the owners of the arches, Network Rail, get over £180,000 a year in rent from the traders. Considering their condition, damp, cold, no heating or "facilities", I find this a staggering amount of money. When you see the prices the traders charge for their "pre-owned" goods, they're not doing it for the money.
