Feng Lin, 36, of Mendip House on the Woodberry Down Estate, Finsbury Park, was jailed after a hearing at Thames Magistrates' Court on Wednesday last week.
Miss Lin was arrested on Sunday, April 18 after cops spotted her setting up a cardboard box displaying various DVDs for sale outside the Sunday Up Market near the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane.
