Haul List – Kirribilli Fashion Market

11 Aug

Spring has arrived early in Sydney this year and there has been none of the blustery August winds, just glorious sunny days. Loving it! It is perfect market weather and we have been taking every opportunity to get out amongst the stalls every weekend. Today we headed for one of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks, the Sydney Harbour Bridge where the Kirribilli market runs nearby its northern foundation in Bradfield Park.

Kirribilli runs a few different markets but today was the fashion market where the whole bowling green is stacked with stalls selling pre-loved fashion. Most of it designer threads and at least 90% of it for women so it’s a fab girls day out. Leave your man in the food area to sample all the great cuisines from around the world and soak up some tunes by the live band of the day.

I love this market – stunning location, awesome food, live music, art & craft stalls as well as a huge number of second-hand stalls but I struggle with the higher price tags. Yes this is North Sydney and yes most of the preloved goods on offer are designer but I’ve been spoiled by op shop prices and just can’t bring myself to pay $10 for a generic second-hand scarf when I usually only pay $1. The Hunter in me knows that shopping below eye level yields good results in pocket friendly terms. So remember to look what’s on the ground and rummage through the boxes & bags of clothing under the racks of higher priced clothes.

Here is some of what we found today.

Converse $10 a pair. LOVE the gold ones with the zipper detail!

My man was stoked when I found these shirts in a bag marked $5 each. By the time I’d sifted through the entire bag and accumulated a few other items the stallholder offered us a greatly reduced price, almost half the listed price so it always pays to buy in bulk. Friendly chatter with the stallholder will always work in your favour also.
