A Real Market

I was up Gisborne-way over the weekend, one of those weddings that tried to miss the AFL Grand Final, and was caught out by the once-in-33 year draw the weekend prior (congratulations to Murray and Emma btw).  We chose to stay overnight, rather than drive back late and in the morning had breakfast in the township.

There was quite a market running in the town, so took a wander through, and found it to be an unusual one, in that it was full of excellent crafts, products, produce, and no Chinese crap to be found – that which has become the norm of many markets around Melbourne.  So a real market for once, and one really worth a bit of a trip to see.  If I wanted cheap Chinese junk, I’d visit a $2 shop……or Bunnings.

There were plenty of woodworkers selling their wares, and some quality looking products too – well finished, and not just mass-produced crapiata items either (if it was pine, it was at least finished properly).

So a really enjoyable impromptu market visit, and one that really showed off the local region well.

    • At least you’ve stopped calling me a Yank

      • Well instead of a yank you’re a thieving rapist Ozzie.

        • Wrong again dipshit

          And now you’ve also lost all posting privileges. How about crawling back under whatever pathetic rock you were hiding under. You are not welcome here.

          And I thought Canadians were a nicer lot than most – guess in Ontario there is at least one that proves me wrong.

          IP address 98.124.36.247 and 216.168.118.108 for anyone else who has websites who would also like to ban said individual. Think you are anonymous Freemale@gmail.com?

          It is jerkoffs like this that will inevitably lead to me shutting this site down one day when I just can’t be bothered offering such a service, for free, to anyone who is interested and simultaneously having to deal with this sort of crap.
