Ash and I trekked (literally, too cheap to pay for bus) to Glebe Markets yesterday on what was supposed to kick off our Amazing Thrifting Adventure. We were too lazy to head to Newtown afterwards as planned so we spent the day at the markets. For the first time ever visiting, it was pretty good!

The weather was great, I had the best kebab I'd tasted in my life, the live music was fantastic (Ash and I contemplated hiring the guitarist for our respective weddings...) and the vibe was perfectly chilled and hipster-ish. There was even a dude with dreads down to his ankles blowing bubbles in the middle of the grassy area. Typical.

We ended up buying some stuff, the main purchase of the day being some random floor length red cape thing that was at the bottom of some $5 pile. I tried it on and we decided it was too weird and fantastic to pass up...surely there will be some occasion in the future where I can wear it, right? And I couldn't pass up buying some angry birds of course.

We left as the market closed, with sore feet and hauling a plastic bag. On the way, a hipster type asked us for directions to Salvos. We knew we'd made it then ;)

Anyway, I went to R's house and slept for a few hours before rocking up to a friend's house party where we played pool, stumbled around, danced in a circle (why do people always do that?) and got fed by the host's mother. A very good day, I'd say!

  8. Haha, this place is so fabulously hippie meets hipster. I would love a place like this. The ring of the lady from behind is hilarious. Also, that dress on the mannequin in the dude strolling picture... I want it! And yo, your outfit that day was perfect! I would love to see more subtle pictures of what you're wearing ;)

  17. WOW you got some amazing shots here! I took photos at a market recently too and i half expected the shop owners to tell me to put my camera away >< but I guess they get used to all the snappers taking photos for their websites- free advertising! that naked woman ring is very innovative!
