Bizarre Bazaar

One Thursday night a long, long time ago, I stumbled across a peculiar event around the corner from the Ivy. There were tall models poised on podiums, a canopy of empty bird cages, and a myriad of designer and vintage boutiques. I remember being disappointed no performances were happening on the small stage that was set up, but I was especially disappointed by my dismal financial situation. Browsing the stalls on that chilly night, I kept uncovering all these amazing items which pulled on my heart strings – one gorgeous vintage jumper in particular, I'd just wanted to cover myself in.

Unfortunately I could do nothing but stand there freezing my tits off, looking all sad and miserable and trying to telepathically make the shopkeeper think "ohmigawd this poor lonely sad boy looks really desperate and poor and I should gift him a jumper to make him feel better". My mind control powers must be lacking because it didn't seem to work. But it was really cold. Even the models were huddled together. To what effect I have no idea.

I however, did find out more about the event - it was Bizarre Bazaar. I dare you to say it ten times really fast. The markets pops up every second month in Sydney's Angel Place and hosts over thirty emerging designers. The next one is taking place on July 19th - just enough time to save one fortnight worth of pay!


  1. Ooooo, I love a good market. I'll be sure to wear a jacket though as it's very cold out and I don't want freeze my...well you know.
