Weekend Wanderings – Vintage Markets
This morning my daughters and I went to Northcote Town Hall to go to a vintage market that was organised by Take 2 Markets. Lots of people with vintage clothes have stalls and sell there items. It is a very nice market and the people there are so friendly. I was also sorted of invited by Rina to take photos of the market so they could use some. I met Rina recently through Miss Rosanna, networking working brilliantly.
We were there early before the market could get into full swing, but the clothes were so good and I found so many things I wanted. Of course I am looking for clothing that I can use for my portraits. I found one top and one dress which was great.
Lots and lots of hats, I think it because it is the Spring Carnival Racing time here in Melbourne, that’s horse racing for those that don’t need. The Melbourne Cup will be in just over a week. “The horse race that stops a nation” or so they want us to believe.
I thought this woman was a plant, but she wasn’t, how amazing does she look. She looks like she has stepped out of time. Just stunning. I was told that she often comes to the market.
I love the outfit, and Richard, if you see this, I was certainly thinking of you when I took her photo. You would be proud of me, I asked her if I could take her photo, if you can believe that.
I took lots of photos of the hall that it was in and some of the stalls, and I even took some details, really, I did. I will put them into a gallery and maybe you can go and visit a market this Sunday. I hope it is a beautiful day where ever you are in the world.
