Off to Queen Victoria Building for the biggest Christmas tree ever and a spot of more window shopping.
Yes it's still November, and yes I guess I'm jumping the gun, but I do so love Christmas. The baubles, the lights, the food, the carols. I love the feel of the shops, and thankfully my GN (glamorous neighbour) feels the same. We were as a couple of girls in a toy shop. Then it was a quick stop at Allens Music which is housed in the old Bank of NSW building, but is sadly closing down, for some last minute buys for GN's muso husband, before catching the train home. Another bonus photo opportunity of an old glass ceiling and tiled floor you just don't see anymore.
While we were skipping the Christmas lights fantastic, hubby and daughter were hitting the garage sales and scored a few bargins for the house. My favourite being a fantastic coffee sign? picture? that is now gracing our lounge wall. It goes well with our other previous treasure finds.
On Sunday we hit (well actually almost missed as we got there so late) Carlingford markets, and remember those shoes on my Christmas wish list? Well I found something very similar.
We had a lovely weekend away - and we didn't even leave the city.
