Having children means that weekend lie-in's don't really happen, but that's not such a bad thing when there are Sunday markets to get up early for! One of my regular Sunday morning haunts is a small market held in Cheltenham, Melbourne's South East. I've published an article dedicated to the market on weekendnotes.
Cheltenham Rotary Market is a bit of a mishmash, with generic flea market stalls selling bric-a-brac and homewares, second-hand clothing and toys, as well as fresh flowers, free range eggs, a selection of home baked cakes and bread, soaps and pre-loved jewellery.
I try to get to the market every fortnight to stock up on fresh fruit and vegetables. There are a few stallholders at Cheltenham Rotary Market that sell fruit and vegetables from their own gardens; fresh, organic, and reasonably priced. It isn't so much the price that attracts me to the market, than the fact that I'd rather give my money to people earning a small living from their market stall each weekend than large corporate grocery chains. One of my favourite stallholders happens to be a 77yr old lady that gets up early every Sunday to get to the market. I find her home grown produce lasts much longer than that purchased in grocery stores.
To my utter surprise, the skirt fits. I am quite thrilled, because my wardrobe is becoming quite limited as my pregnancy reaches its third trimester.
Wouldn't you know it, recycled fashion when you least expect it!
Tell me readers, have you happened upon a second-hand fashion gem in the unlikeliest of places? Do tell!
