Marie:   Hey, Harry. So how was your shopping trip last weekend?

Harry:   It was great thanks, Marie. It’s a shame you couldn’t come.

Marie:   Yes, I know. Did you get the jeans that you wanted?

Harry:   Well, I looked in hundreds of shops but I couldn’t find any nice ones, so I bought some trainers instead.

Marie:   Right. Did you get them at that sports shop you always go to?

Harry:   They didn’t have my size, so I got them at that department store.

Marie:   What, that one by the river?

Harry:   Yes, Marley’s. The trainers I got were quite cheap there, too. Only 25 euros. Most of the other trainers in the shop were 50 euros or more.

Marie:   That’s good. Did you buy them with your pocket money from your parents?

Harry:   Actually, it was money that my grandad gave me – I’ve cleaned his car three times this month and he paid me for doing it.

Marie:   Well done, Harry! I wanted to go shopping today, but I haven’t got any money – I’ve spent it all.

Harry:   Oh? What have you bought?

Marie:   A ticket for the football match on Saturday.

Harry:   Oh great. Have you been to a match before?

Marie:   Of course! I go about once a month with my brother.

Harry:   OK! I didn’t know you liked football. We’ve never talked about it before.

Marie:   I like it. Have you ever been, Harry?

Harry:   Never. And I’ve got no money now, so I can’t go this week.

Marie:   Perhaps you can do some more jobs for your grandad and then come with us next time?

Harry:   Yeah, I’d like to.

Dan:   Hi Alice. How was your trip to London?

Alice:   Hi Dan. We had a great time. We saw Buckingham Palace and went to the Science Museum on Saturday, but the best part was when we went to Camden Lock Market on Sunday.

Dan:   Oh yeah, that’s famous, isn’t it?

Alice:   Yes, there were hundreds of stalls and shops. In fact, I think there are more than 1,000 because there’s a big market building and then other places in the streets around it.

Dan:   Wow, that’s enormous! What do they sell there?

Alice:   Well, it isn’t like a typical fruit and vegetable market, you know. There aren’t stalls selling food to take home to cook, just food stalls selling dishes to eat there, like hot dogs, hamburgers or pizzas. We had Mexican food for lunch. It was delicious! There are some shops that famous people, like rock stars, have opened, which are really cool. There’s music everywhere.

Dan:   So what did you like best in the market?

Alice:   The clothes stalls! You know I love shopping for clothes, so that was great. I found really cheap T-shirts, and I bought three. I’ve got one for you! And I found a really cool green handbag. I’ll show it to you. There were antique stalls as well, selling jewellery. I got a ring for my sister’s birthday present and a lovely necklace for me.

Dan:   So you spent a lot of money!

Alice:   Well, I only had five pounds left at the end of that day and I bought a poster with that. I went into a music shop where there was fantastic music and they had posters of bands and singers. I bought one of Justin Bieber. I’m going to give it to my friend Lisa because he’s her favourite singer.

Dan:   I think Justin Bieber is amazing, too!

Alice:   Anyway, why don’t you come to my house after school and I can give you your T-shirt?

Dan:   Great!
