On Saturday I decided that I wanted to head out somewhere new where I had never been before. With with wonderful Amy by my side we set out for the afternoon to explore Glebe Markets and the surrounding area.
Glebe Markets has a mixture of vintage/second-hand clothes, people selling the items that they have created, bric-a-brac and a range of delicious food and drink stalls. Of course the first thing that we had to do was find something delicious to eat. I opted for a Turkish Gozleme with spinach and cheese and Amy a gourmet sausage sandwich. I also got a fresh lemonade and Amy a Pinelime-aid (Pineapple and Lime). Market food is usually always pretty good and this was one of the best gozleme's I have ever had.
Once we had finished eating, whilst listening to the sounds of live music, we started to explore the stalls of the markets. Some of my friends has set up a stall selling off some of their clothes they don't wear anymore. I think this is a great idea and I might have to do it next time I have a clear out of my closet. We wandered the stalls for about an hour looking at amazing, handmade jewellery and smelling delicious candles. Neither of us ended up buying anything but it was wonderful to look and explore.
I haven't been to Glebe many times before so it was nice just to wander up Glebe Point Rd checking out some of the shops and quirky little places there. There are a couple of amazing bookshops that were wonderful to get lost in looking at a variety of beautiful books and stationary (one of my shopping weaknesses!) and some delectable desert places. We decided on San Churro Chocolatier for coffee and churros. Chocolate and caramel with Spanish Donuts plus Iced Spanish Lattes, what could go wrong!

Once we devoured this sweet goodness we left and the weather had changed. It wasn't the nice sunny day the morning was but the wind and picked up and it looked like a large storm was rolling in. It was time to head home (this was without stopping to take a few pictures on the way).
