bits of my weekend...and more happenings in Perth!


The weather was perfect over the weekend for markets!
First stop was the William St Art & Culture Festival.

There were so many people, lots of food stalls & stalls selling handmade goodies, accessories & clothings.

There was also some screenprinting action happening at the Festival. It looked so much fun! I always wanted to learn screenprinting. It must be simply awesome to print your own bags & T-shirts.





















After strolling down William St, my friend & i headed to UWA for UpMarket.
We reached there around 3pm, so it was not as crowded as before.

I was captured by the beautiful delicate shapes of sparrow & butterflies porcelain ornaments at one of the stalls. They would be so perfect to decorate a plain white wall. They were once part of beautiful vintage  porcelain china. Sold for $45 each.

While we were there, we also found out about another upcoming festival in Perth! Angove Street Festival will be happening at North Perth on 10th April. There'll be Upmarket stalls, classic car show, street performers and the list goes on. I think I am most definitely going. Better mark the date down on my calendar!


On top of that, another exciting event is happening this coming Sunday, 27th March. Unwrapped <the marketplace> is to be held at Angelo Stree, South Perth somewhere near Perth Zoo according to google map.

Unwrapped designers will fill Angelo Street with colour and creativity as part of the final event of South Perth Fiesta 2011.
Enjoy browsing 60 boutique stalls packed with art, fashion, jewellery, photography, kidswear, accessories, homewares, skincare and much more...

Glad to know that there are so many events happening around Perth lately. It's a good thing that the art culture is growing & expanding in Perth. Personally, i simply love the idea of markets like the above. I reckon William Street Art Culture Festival should be held more regularly simply because it was so much inspiration and fun.

To market, to market!
