Jane, me and Lisle, another friend, went off to the markets at Mt Gravatt this morning...a 5.15 am pick up by Lisle from our place to arrive at the markets by about 5.45. We were bundled up in thick jackets, scarves and gloves but oooh, the wind was cold and I was wishing I had a hat.
Anyway, we parked, grabbed our little wheelie shopping trundlers and poked around, bargained and commented on all sorts of treasures the stallholders had laid out for our inspection. You can buy anything at the markets from bric-a-brac to crystal, brand new leather handbags, Turkish bread, fresh fruit and veges. There is also a food area where we can buy a coffee and something to eat for sustance before making our way round the stalls a second time...just to make sure we hadn't missed anything. We met up with another friend, Donna and her friend, Jill, and we all had "breakfast" together. It's a very social exercise, this marketing business.
I didn't spend much but received good value for what I bought.
Lemon butter...oh, joy. Just sooo yummy on hot crumpets - $2.
