I have just returned from Canberra as we were attending a 40th birthday party. Great night! Fabulous food. It was Jack Daniels themed.
While we were in Canberra we visited the Old Bus Depot Market in Kingston.
The market is literally in the old bus depot. All Canberra’s buses used to be housed and maintained here. The market began in 1994 when two enterprising women started the market off. You can read all about it on the link I provided. When we lived in Canberra we used to visit the market regularly and it was great to be able to get the chance to visit again. The market is held every Sunday.
In the market we found many of our favourite stalls and many new ones.
There were beautiful flowers, including these lovely ‘white’ waratahs.
There was a stall selling leather bags made from recycled leather. The bags are constructed using leather from used coats, jackets and bags. The leather is conditioned and then sewn into new bags which are versatile. You can find out about them at Vintagecreation.com.au
This stall holder travels all the way from the Blue Mountains to run her stall on Sundays.
While we were there we also had some lunch as there is a great variety of food stalls. Here are just a few.
