The Weekend Before Christmas

Santa's sack from here

And still looking for that elusive gift? It could be at these markets waiting to be bought:-

Surry Hills Market
Yes, it's not the first Saturday of the month but the organisers have decided to hold one for desperate folks.

When: Saturday 20 December 2008, 9.00am to 4.00pm
Where: Shannon Reserve (corner of Foveaux and Crown Street)
What you'll find: Loads of vintage clothing and bric-a-brac stalls, secondhand pieces by local designers and a small range of new labels

Newtown Designers Market
I've not been so I can't promise if it'll be a fruitful trip or not. You won't know unless you go.

When: Sunday 21 December 2008, 10.00am to 4.00pm
Where: Newtown Neighbourhood Centre (upstairs), Corner of Bedford and Australia Street, Newtown
What you'll find: The organisers say, "The designers featured at the monthly markets hand-make or produce products in small runs. No mass production here! We love everything that is fashion, jewellery, bags, accessories, stationery and arty!"

And girls in Singapore, do not fret. You can go to this:-

Shop My Wardrobe
My stylist pal, Bah-bah, in Singapore sent me the link with this note, "Girlfriends, think some of you will appreciate this. The rest who are not here can just ogle and see what you are missing...". Bitch.

When: Saturday 20 December 2008, 11.30am to 9.30pm
Where: Persimmon, The Link Hotel, 50 Tiong Bahru Road, #01-07
What you'll find: They say, "New and pre-loved Armani, BCBG, Blumarine, Burberry, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Celine, Comme Des Garcons, Diesel, D&G, DKNY, Dries Van Noten, Fendi, Gaultier, H&M, Issey Miyake, Jaeger, Karen Millen, Kenzo, Lacoste, LouisVuitton, MNG, Marc Jacobs, Margiela, Marni, Max & Co, Miu Miu, Moschino, PleatsPlease, Prada & many more. Also vintage gowns, dresses, bags, belts & shoes." Click for a sneak preview.

Remember, shop for people on your list before you do so for yourself. Have fun!

Hello Yublocka,
Thank you for visiting and reading! I hope you'll be able to strike everyone off your Christmas list by the end of the day. The cool little shops in Newtown might help too.

Tweet-tweet, Top Bird,
I was working so I missed the special Surry Hills Market day. It rained for a few hours too so they might have packed up early and went home. Sucks to be them. xx
