A sunny Sunday morning leads us to decide on a visit to the Camberwell Market, which is a market, held in…Camberwell (in the carpark at the rear of Burke and Riversdale Roads, Camberwell to be precise) and is a Sunday market aimed at turning trash to treasure.
The market gets going about 7:00am which is far too early for us, and by the time we get ourselves out of bed and sorted, drive the 25 minutes to the market and have our obligatory fight as to which car parking space, we eventually get to the market about 10:00am.
Having had no time for breakfast we look for food options at the market and pass some people eating a sausage hot dog. Inspired, we set about looking for the hot dog vendor which doesn’t take long. Our hot dogs in hand we wander the market (which I am sure the stallholders must secretly just love).
Being a market turning trash to treasure there is the usual sample of everything from wind up gramophones (which Alex wanted to buy) to ladies hand made sundresses (which I bought) and most everything in-between. This is also a market which has a lot of vintage gear which is very in vogue and another reason why this market is popular.
It takes us an hour or so to wander round the market before its time for a coffee break. We spy the telltale sign of a coffee shop….large outdoor umbrellas….an head over for our coffee fix.
With our coffee drunk we head up and down another couple of isles of the market before calling it a day (or in our case, a morning). It is about midday and some of the stallholders are starting to pack up.
With things to do at home (and a new dress to try on) we head for the car and say goodbye to the Camberwell Market until our next sunny Sunday market visit….[showmyads]
