Competition Entry: Shirt & Skirt Market At Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne, Australia

Well, it's that time of the week again...  Thanks to all of you who entered our Worldwide Market Guide Competition in the last week, we are having heaps of fun reading all of the entries.  This week, our pick of the entries is from Sara Silvester from Kew, Melbourne, congratulations Sara!  We love the Shirt and Skirt Market too. 

There are only a few weeks until our Worldwide Market Guide Competition closes so keep sending in those entries to give yourself a chance of winning a $150 gift voucher which you can spend on our range of unique and handmade gifts from around the world.

Here's Sara's entry:

I love spending a lazy Sunday afternoon browsing the stalls at the Shirt & Skirt Market at Abbostford Convent which is held on the third Sunday of every month.

With the beautiful Abbotsford Convent in the backdrop there is just something very peaceful about wandering around the market, even if the market is packed with people.
There are so many fantastic things to buy, from gorgeous clothes, cute kids clothes and accessories, jewellery, hats, and heaps more.  And everything is so unique and original, it's very inspiring to know that we have so many local artists and designers right here in Melbourne.
Lucky for me the market is held on a Sunday which means that I can get back to work on Monday to earn some more money to top up the bank account after I've emptied it out on Sunday!
