sunday: sun, shopping, st kilda

November 16, 2009

After weeks of busy preparation for the highly anticipated Thread Den market, I woke yesterday to a beautiful morning. Call me crazy but I was out of bed by 6am and down on the beach by 6.15am for a relaxing walk along the sand. The beach is such a calming place at that time of day, I was practically the only person down there and all I could hear was the sound of the waves.   

A few hours later and I was in North Melbourne setting up my stall. A good deal of time was spent trying to figure out where to put the absolutely enormous blackboard and easel I had brought with me. After much dragging back and forth it ended up behind my stall, but I'm so glad I had it with me - I love it!

After a great day of chatting to customers and fellow stall holders (hello Penny and Susan!) I packed up the car and headed home. Feeling motivated I actually unloaded my car as soon as I got home (I have been known to leave the car packed for days after a market!). It was then off to St Kilda to spend the evening with a friend. In typical Melbourne fashion we met outside Luna Park before enjoying a night of great food (oh gelati how I love thee), walking and talking along the beach, and a beer at a secret St Kilda hangout with great views, peace and quiet, and cheap drinks (I can't tell you where, that would spoil the secret!).

And yes, I wore my Summer dress again. It was the perfect choice for a perfect day.


  1. Wow, that's a busy day! I was so tired after the market and it was only 4 hours - I'm lame! And your blackboard is sooo good, LOVE IT :)

  2. love the blackboard display! :)
    and what a wonderful day indeed :)
