On our first weekend in Geelong Marcus and I scouted the Geelong Steampacket Gardens Market. Ok, so the weather was cold, windy and rainy so it is understandable that the markets were a disaster! The best thing it had going for it was its lovely location on the harbour in Geelong but it was tres sad. I was really worried that if this was the quality of markets I was to expect in Geelong then we have made a grave grave mistake moving here! So, it was on!
My search for a good, nay awesome market! It took a few tries but I found it….more on that in a minute. The next weekend I rolled up my sleeves and went in search of more markets. Next was the Belmont Sunday Market…a little bit of trash and treasure never goes astray but it was not what I was looking for. So, that very afternoon I went to find the Central Geelong Farmers Market. Disappointing…I can’t say anything else! I was so disappointed that I took off to Melbourne the following weekend and went to Camberwell Markets. WOW! What a treasure trove of trash and treasure! There was loads of second hand goods, or hand-crafted goods with stuff like vintage clothing, crockery and books as well as unusual things like photo albums, typewriters and ornaments. Still this was in Melbourne and it was not exactly what I was looking for….Next, came a visit to Geelong from mum and dad and I know Mum loves a good market just as much as I do so I was desperate to find one and I did!!!!!
