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
