The weekend is long, the forecast is for cold and drizzle by Sunday, but that doesn’t mean you have to sit at home and sulk like Aung San Suu Kyi.
Eveleigh Markets – fresh produce and food, flowers, plants and other direct-from-the-farm goodies at Carriageworks
Glebe Market - winter clothing, books, art, music, food and a family-friendly atmosphere at Glebe Primary School
Paddington Markets – gorgeous jewelry and design nick-nacks from upcoming talents + over-priced vintage clothing and gozleme on Oxford Street
Homebush Swap and Sell – if you’re further out west, head to Homebush, opposite Flemington station for the giant Swap and Sell market – vintage clothing bargains ahoy, and less hipsters to battle if you get there early
Rozelle Markets - another all-weekend stop for furniture, books, a small range of clothing and stacks of general useless/weird/awesome shit over in Rozelle – they have a snazzy website too!
Saturday night, check one of these films at the Sydney Film Festival. Otherwise, the definite highlight gig is The Jezabels @ Hordern Pavillion – tickets still available for an easy $50/pineapple. After that, pop into Halfway Crooks for some deluxe, ultra-fine hip-hop @ Phoenix – just $10 bones on the door for GUARANTEED good times.
Da BOM say it be raining, so you should watch Mad Men/Game of Thrones or cuddle your bf/gf all day. If you’re a twit who likes to keep busy on Sunday, why don’t you go to:
