I went to the Rose Street Artist Market in Fitzroy for the first time today (well apart from attending the annual graffiti art exhibitions held there) and I thought it was totally brilliant. I’m so sick of going to so-called ‘markets’ in melbourne and seeing the same old shit everywhere. Everything in Rose St looks like a one-off original piece of art. It’s kind of like a real-life Etsy. I picked up some clothes and this little leather pouch. At the time I didn’t know what I’d do with it, I just liked it. When I got back to the car I decided it was the perfect size for my touch and headphones. I’d rather this than something off-the-shelf at my local Apple store.
Also got ready today for the big Reilly garage sale tomorrow. If you’re in Melbourne, and you envy my CD collection (1500 cds of the finest music EVAH), then come to 297 Ballarat St Yarraville around 10am.
