Glebe markets

Went to the Glebe markets on Saturday. Haven't been for a while. So parked over at the Broadway shopping centre then we walked over. Saw a few more designers setting up stalls selling their t-shirts, cards, badges, bags etc.

Really liked the the CHMO items designed by Richard Ellard. Bought 3 badges for $5 from his stall. The badges I bought were of cute illustrated characters.

Frejj was a stall with 2 girls selling hand-made leather bags and purses. They told me some of the material used is from recycled leather clothing etc, and some of the material used is from new leather. They also design commissioned bags. The designs were really cool and funky.

Lunagraph - Ed Hughes was selling photographic prints and cards. His website says: "A lunagraph is an image created using moonlight instead of sunlight." There's a gallery section on his website that shows some of the images I saw at his stall. I like the mood captured in the photos - a kind of mystic, calm quality.

Also saw a cool t-shirt, skirt stall with really cool illustration designs on the garments. I think the label was called Ruby Red or something similar. Couldn't find a website for them.

Then had a quick look at Gleebooks, then browsed some magazines at the newsagent in Broadway. Ended up getting 'Monster Children' no. 11, and 'Dwell' magazine, april 06.

Then got a hot chocolate from Campos in Newtown (193 Missenden Rd). Love the interior of the place. Felt like we were in Copenhagen or somewhere again. The hot chocolate was yummy too.
