Surry Hills Markets




It was my first time at surry hills markets! After many times that ive planned to go but couldnt have because something came up... i was very excited to go finally. And well i do say that the whole area and the amount of stalls is small compared to Glebe or Rozelle markets but it without a doubt sells the best things, although for a more expensive price. The clothes that are sold there are probably 100% vintage, they sell would sell vintage Chanel bomber jackets for $400 where as in Glebe they sell similar bomber jackets for $40!Afterwards we walked around nearby and had lunch at Mad Spuds Cafe, i ordered the nachos with the spuds potato and holy crap it tasted soooo good (definitely best nachos in my life). When i was trying on some rings at this pretty cool stall, i couldn't get a ring off and when i tried twisting it off i probably pulled on the ornament on the ring too much and i kinda broke it haha i am actually very bad when it comes to these things ive kinda broke too many things in shops woooops. It was a great day and whereas normally i would mainly buy clothes i did not this time. I couldnt take a picture of what i bought but i got:
-2 cute rings for $15 together
-a leather tassle bag for $55 that was bargained from $70
-a dress for $50
-boooooks (1984 by George Orwell, The Hunchback of notre-dame by Victor Hugo, Persuasion by Jane Austen) for $7-8 each
-some christmas presents

Today my friends and I celebrated my friends' birthdays by having a picnic at the Sydney Botanical Gardens. It was the first time ever ive seen the Opera House up close and the day was spent eating some not quite healthy foods.  The last few photos were taken off  Nina (hehe thanks!!!!).
