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.
The court also dealt with the selling of illegal DVDs in Brick Lane in August last year and a breach of a suspended sentence.
