I was back in my old stomping ground at the weekend for an appointment and took the opportunity to visit my favourite car boot market. There are lots of good markets in Sydney but I like this particular one a lot because it has a great family atmosphere, most of the stall holders are so friendly and willing to haggle, there's a jumping castle and sausage sizzle to keep the kiddies happy and lots of the sellers genuinely seem to WANT to give you a bargain. Other markets I visit are full of sellers who are only too aware of how much their goods could fetch on eBay and price them accordingly, so while you may pick up a dream item it won't be at the jaw-droppingly low price you could get at a market like this.
I found a few lovely pieces...
I am in love with this lamp and can't believe I got it for $3!!! I think it's really elegant but with a slight industrial feel.
I have a thing for antique filing trays and this is definitely my new favourite - $3! I love the tarnished old drawer pull.
This lovely rusty blue spice rack is perfect in my eyes. The jars unscrew from the holder - $2!
This cute grey enamel pot was only $1!
I also picked up a fabulous vintage scooter which my kind friends M & M took home in their car (thanks guys) - usually such items are out of my reach as I don't drive so I was delighted they could transport it for me - it's pretty special and will be featured in a post all of its own :-)
