Good places to shop w teens in London (funky and inexpensive)

My son likes Goodwill (!) and unusual t shirts. Actually he's not much of a shopper.
My daughter likes PacSun-styled clothing and anything unusual. She LOVES to shop.
Ideas for shopping? Not too expensive? They would enjoy buying t shirts and the like. Are the marketplaces good ideas? (Which ones?)

Hi herenthere, I haven't been there yet but... I hear that Camden market caters to the young goth crowd. I got a Pac son shopping kid too and am considering this market.

Yes, camden market is a great place to get funky tees for cheap (Northern Line) You can even see some of the artisits sketching the designs for the tees. It's a bit punkish though, so not quite Pac Sun style. Your daughter might like TopShop, Next, etc along Bond St.

Definitely Topshop on Oxford Circus! My teens love that.
And maybe Portobello Road on Saturday? And if you walk down Kings Road, starting at Sloane Square, there are some shops they might like. There's a good vintage shop on King's Road near Sydney Street.

Try Primark on Oxford St, its a cheap faashion store, and has a cult following.

Your daughter could get loads of tops/accessories without spending much, most tops are around £6

Our daughter is a Goodwill only consumer (there are increasing numbers of our young folks who are committed to this approach-bless 'em). She raved about the Oxfam stores, especially in Oxford/Cambridge...I guess the university element made them especially interesting.
