Why Bondi Markets Rock My World! By Jana Hocking
There is nothing nicer than waking up fresh on a Sunday with no hangover in sight and feeling like the world is your oyster! This doesn’t happen to often so when it does I like to make the most of it!
Being a Bondi local, one of my absolute favourite things to do on a day such as this is make my way down to Bondi markets for a potter around.
Now I hear what you’re thinking.. What makes Bondi Markets better than any other markets?? Well I’m glad you asked dear readers!
I have put together a list to outline exactly that!
1. They sell sausage sizzles, and who doesn’t like a sausage sizzle??
2. You can buy a bunch of fresh flowers for under $10, If you currently single like myself this is a fab way to spoil yourself! You can even pretend your on a date… with yourself! Is that tragic?? Whatevzzzz!
3. It has fabulous hand-made jewellery unlike anything you may come across in large department stores.
4. They are super strict with which new designers they let sell their goods at these markets, so you’re bound to buy the next up-and-comers wears for a bargain price! It has been the launch pad for designers such as Ksubi and Lover.
5. It is a great place for people spotting. These markets bring along the most eclectic bunch of peeps. There are your tourists, locals, hipsters, celebrities and everything in between.
6. Dogs are welcome! I don’t have a dog, but if I did I would totes bring it along!
7. Bored with giving your friends the same old dud presents? Here you can buy unique one-off pieces such as hand-made bags, artwork, candles, jewellery and gorgeous pop-up cards that will make your present stand out from the rest. Go you!
8. You can deck your whole house out in Bondi Markets trinkets. They sell retro furniture, gorgeous artworks and there’s even a wide selection of mirrors and frames. Ain’t nobody want a house reflecting an ikea catalogue!
