Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at brizzymaysbooksandbruschettasite.wordpress.com
Event:
Lets make shopping fun and not a chore with markets & coffee
If, like me, you find Christmas shopping a total bore then put the fun back into the task by attending the last Community Markets and Car Boot Sale for the year at Redlands Church of Christ on Saturday, 26th of November.

Local artisans and crafters will be selling their wares, and honestly, who doesn't have a friend who would just love to be gifted a new candle or fragrant homemade soap? As for the Car Boot Sale, you just never know what you will come across in your rummaging. That's what makes them fun, almost exciting. I've discovered some favourite books and interesting jigsaw puzzles among the possessions people are willing to part with. It really is true that one man's trash is another man's treasure.

The Bush Oasis Op Shop, at the rear of the Church grounds, is also worth a visit for its bargains. Children's books, puzzles, crockery and preloved clothing are always popular with visitors. As well, you can relax and enjoy refreshments from the Bean Grounded Coffee Cart whilst watching the kiddies let loose on the playground equipment. You can even bring the four legged children along for the outing.

"We are not just an Op Shop. It was never meant to be just that. We are a community sanctuary. A place to meet, talk, laugh, bargain hunt, drink coffee, get up close to the overly friendly local magpies, give and receive support, and most importantly feel love and welcome always." - Kay, Op Shop Manager.



You know too that there is no such thing as a market without a Sausage Sizzle. Just doesn't happen. So keep a few coins spare after you've shopped, bargain hunted, and re-caffeinated, for a barbecued snag on the way out. Now tell me that doesn't beat fighting for a car space at the local shopping centre?



Redlands Church of Christ is located at 51 Allenby Road, Alexandra Hills, with an entry gate and car park via McMillan Road. The festivities commence at 9am and continue till 1pm. Happy shopping!
