New finds

New vintage find

Earrings from Glebe markets

I had probably planned a little too much for Saturday so didn't end up going to The Powerhouse Museum as planned but will leave that for next week as the Young Blood Designers market will be on as well.
And just as i was rushing to get to the bus stop on time i realised i had forgotten my camera,it's usually in my bag,i was very sad i had left it behind.
My first stop was to the hairdresser for a much needed cut,it had been 4 months since i had last been and was in dire need of a trim.
It was another very warm spring like day so the markets were bustling,I only had a quick browse and found some lovely earrings at only $10 and on my way out treated myself to a Pine Lime Lemonade from the lemonade stall,who doesn't love fresh lemonade,and mine had some pineapple for a twist.I really felt for the 2 guys though having to work so hard in the heat but what a workout for the arms,shaking the containers all dayI took a stroll down Glebe Point Road browsing some stores and found a gorgeous glass container in a vintage store, I'm not sure how you would even describe the colour,i'll probably use it on my dressing table storing all the things i use everyday,or as a centrepiece.
I then walked over to Broadway Shopping Centre and by then i was starving and decided on nachos for lunch,I used to work in here while i was at university,it was always a pretty small centre but now they've added a whole new floor with some very snazzy looking bathrooms.
On my way home i had a quick look at some op shops at Broadway and was amazed to see one of them taking advantage of the fact they know that it's not only the poor who visit these stores and they had some items at over $100.not even the vintage store that i visited earlier had anything that expensive.
