When itís time to shop itís time to head over to Paddo

Get ready for 2016's second fantastic Excess Baggage: Paddington Secondhand Market.

The shopping fun starts at 9.00am on Saturday 23 April, 2016 at the Briswest Centre, 132 Latrobe Terrace, Paddington and finishes up at 3.00pm

Entry to the Market is FREE and the fun begins even before you get inside the hall. It all starts at the tables outside and continues apace as you move on into the hall. This really is an outside/inside shopping adventure where all sorts of treasures are available over the entire market place. It is so good, if you looked up an encyclopaedia for the definition of the phrase, 'shopping to your heart's content' you would see a photograph of Excess Baggage: Paddington Secondhand Market.

The shopping's fun whether you're inside or out


You never know what you might find among this huge gathering of tables. You'll have a chance to find that special something that you've always wanted whether you knew you wanted it or not. Why not give yourself a wonderful surprise by discovering that absolute 'must-have' collectable you see for the very first time on the day? And, as any experienced 'thrifter' knows, get there early or all the best 'stuff' will be gone.

So make sure you have the 23 April, 2016 in your diary and come along and grab yourself bags full of bargains.

If, at any stage, you feel peckish or just down-right hungry enjoy some of the homemade goodies available or line-up at the sausage sizzle. But, if you don't fancy any of the munchies available in the hall, remember you're at Paddo and there are coffee shops and eateries galore so you'll be taken care of.

Excess Baggage is an initiative of the BrisWest Centre which is an incorporated, non-profit, community run centre, providing activities, events, resources and a mutual space for community members aged 50 years and older. Incorporated in 1970 the Centre is run by a volunteer committee and is central to creating a community of interest around the area by inviting engagement from new members, volunteers, sponsors and all the local community stakeholders.
