Be surprised by what you will find on market day
Grab a bargain at the Excess Baggage Secondhand Market on Saturday 24 July 2021 in Paddington and support Brisbane West seniors.
The free market will run from 9:00am to 3:00pm with a wide selection of secondhand items to give a second life. As well as loads of clothes and ready to part with items, there will also be music, food, coffee, a sausage sizzle and a raffle.
Funds raised from the market go towards the Brisbane West Senior Citizens Centre. The centre provides activities and services to members aged 50 years and older.
Away from the market, the hall is used by a diverse range of people participating in various forms of dance, meditation, yoga and improvisational theatre. There is a weekly morning tea at Cafe YoYo on Thursdays at 10.30am and a monthly conversation group called ' What's on Your Mind'.
