Three for the price of one.....!


All was well in Perth yesterday, the sun was shining the birds were singing and it was good to get out and about after feeling a bit 'off' last week. Aimee and I went out to the Claremont Showgrounds to check out the goodies at the 3 in 1 market. Most of Perth had the same idea.....
The 3 in 1 market is made up of antiques and collectibles, some of those old watches cost a fortune.  Aimee can never get past the vintage fans.....
There's the hand made crafts.....
And then the most interesting of all the Polka Dot Vintage clothes section, which I don't seem to have any pictures of... because I was too busy searching through racks and racks of clothes from a bygone era, I had to take a sneaky shot of this very tall man decked out from top to toe in black leather (I did mention that the sun was shining yeh!) I was dreading that he'd look around and catch me snapping, he was probably a pussy cat but looked a little menacing!! I hope that you're having a good weekend, take care and stay safe.....

  1. Wonderful photos, Gracie. Aimee looks gorgeous as always... glad you both enjoyed the markets. Sorry we're both too flu-ey... we would have sold a lot of fudge if we'd been well :O)

  4. That is a bit of a crowd, I hope they shifted a lot of stuff. Love that photo of Aimée, I'm sure she could have chatted up this person and made the pussycat smile, lol!

    Grace, I hate this heat. We don't have much air conditioning here (mostly in office buildings) so I'm baking in my flat...

  20. So love the colour and buzz of markets! And this one looks so much like a great example! And I would try to sneak a shot of that amazing tall man in black too! He certainly stands out! I rugged myself up today + waterproof jacket and hat + umbrella determined to have a photo shoot! I'm in withdrawal thanks to all this rain! Managed to scrape in a few sunny shots at Dromana beach between rainfalls! Even resorted to taking photos of my umbrella while I waited under a barbecue shelter for some rain to pass. But I have some new photos!
