Taylor Swift spent £50,000 in a brief shopping spree.

The 'Love Story' singer dropped into antique dealer Alice's on Portobello Road in London on Friday (05.10.12) where she spent £30,000 on a variety of items before moving on to another shop and shelling out £20,000.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''She wandered into Alice's and dropped £30,000 then went up the road and spent another £20,000.

''She was only in there for about five minutes. About half of what she bought was for her, the other for [her boyfriend] Conor Kennedy.

''She bought a drawing of a shark, some old medicine bottles and a pinball machine for him.''

Taylor recently revealed she has ''always been fascinated'' by love.

The 22-year-old singer - who has previously dated a string of Hollywood hunks including Taylor Lautner and Jake Gyllenhaal before beginning a romance with 18-year-old Conor- has wanted to find her perfect man ever since she was a youngster.

Speaking about love, she said: ''[It is] something I've always been fascinated by, ever since I was a little kid.''
