the market at the drive-in

On a nice Sunday morning it can be a tough decision. Which market to go to. Sometimes I prefer Camberwell market which is excellent for clothes, especially kids clothes, if you can be bothered looking through boxes of stuff.  People often sell everything for a couple of dollars and you can get some great bargains here. It has super second hand bric-a-brac as well, but sometimes it is a bit expensive.  On the other hand, Coburg trash and treasure at the Drive-In doesn’t necessarily have good clothes, but the bric-a-brac is often a bargain.

Yesterday I had this debate with myself.  And in the end I chose Coburg.

And I am glad I did because I got these super canisters. The three of them for $2. Pretty good huh?  See, this is what always happens at Coburg. The things I like are so cheap.

I bought these canisters because as you know I am moving to a blue and white kitchen.  And I always like stripes.  And they nearly match my sugar bowl, which has been a bit lonely as the only blue and white striped thing in my kitchen.

And they look great up on the mantle above the stove.

They are sitting with my timer and the two little ink pots the bottle man from Camberwell market gave to the kids for free a month or two ago. So it’s a little Sunday market vignette …
