A shop set up by Pete Doherty to sell Libertines and Babyshambles memorabilia as well as other items from the singer's life has opened for business in Camden, London.

The shop is called Doherty & Martin: The Rag & Bone Collection and is now open in Camden's market area with Doherty working in the shop himself.

Noisey reports that: "There’s enough Libertines, Babyshambles and Doherty memorabilia in there to fill a ballroom. It sells almost nothing of worth, for prices that are extraordinary. There are cigarette butts for £100 and wrapping paper for double that." Describing the inside of the shop it's explained the room is "lit dimly, with every available space filled with tour posters, cans, old vinyl, old magazine articles and thousands of cigarette butts".

The shop was first mentioned by Doherty when he spoke to NME earlier this year. Discussing his money making scheme, Doherty said: "I've got fag butts that belong to Bobby Gillespie, Kate Moss and Amy Winehouse, and I've got Christmas paper that [former Coventry City goalkeeper] Steve Ogrizovic sent to the guy from Black Sabbath. All kinds of shit, basically."

It is not known how long Doherty & Martin: The Rag & Bone Collection is planning to stay open for as the singer splits his time between London and Paris.

Babyshambles' forthcoming album 'Sequel To The Prequel' is released on September 2. The band recently unveiled another track from the album, 'Picture Me In A Hospital', which you can listen to here.

Pete Doherty recently reported that working on the new Babyshambles album "energised" him. Speaking to NME, Doherty said: "I just thought, 'Fuck. Where have I been? Why have I not been getting it together?' We've gotta get these new songs together, we've gotta play. I just feel energised by it all. Really I do."

'Sequel To The Prequel' was recorded at Question Du Son in Paris and mixed at The Bunker in London with producer Stephen Street. It follows 2007's 'Shotter's Nation' and the band's 2005 debut, 'Down In Albion'.
