Funky Fitzroy

Having a couple of days in marvellous Melbourne, seems everyone visiting, except me, is here to see 'JerseyBoys'. Weather coolish but OK, spent Friday morning on the 'Hidden Secrets' lanes tour - fun and the joy of discovering Melbourne's secrets was overwhelming - aah! the shops. It's, for me, still the best shopping city in Australia.
Saturday went hunting for a market that wasn't about organic fruit and veg. and found the Fitzroy markets: small and tucked away in Rose St Fitzroy, search for it. Lovely, creative, funky stuff for sale, handmade and interesting articles, I purchased a couple of lovely items for the 'gift drawer' and sampled cake and coffee at the market's 'Kanteen'.
Headed across town to toney Armidale to cruise the antique shops, but that was all about browsing.
Back to Sydney tonight to get ready for work tomorrow. Au revoir Melbourne.

  1. We had fun at the 'funky' Fitzroy market too, it's great when friends come to town, you tend to find great places you would never have looked for otherwise; and by the way Bev,the pasta was great,thankyou.
