Shop til you drop or they shut
Just when you think you can't take one more festive market, another one pops up and you find yourself excited to go do it all again. The City of Perth has so many things going on at Christmas, but the East End Festive Marketplace is one to delight everyone.
A full festive weekend of shopping and entertainment will help you get that last-minute Christmas shopping done. There are sustainable gifts to buy, all of which are unique and can't be found in every other store. These are beautiful and often handmade products. Plus, once you have bought these items, and you're not feeling like wrapping the gifts, there are gift-wrapping stations where you can employ someone else to do all of the hard work.
You can explore the pre-loved clothing stalls. There are also records, knives and more to buy. Plus, bakers and a chocolatier. When you're hungry, there are always foods to buy, but let's face it, you won't get past Sue Lewis chocolatiers. The chocolates are amazing and good for both gifts and shoving in your face.
If you love chocolate, and other gifts, then head to the State Buildings, in the East End of Perth City on Friday December 9th and Saturday December 10th at varying times. On the 9th, the Markets are on between 3pm and 7pm. And on the 10th, you can take part between 11am and 3pm.
