I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

When I was a kid commuting to Adelaide on the Grange train line, my family used to hurriedly close the train windows as we approached Bowden because of the terribly invasive burning smell in the area caused by industry (probably the gas works).
Fast forward to the 21st Century, and people are flocking to be part of the trendy urban renewed lifestyle there. There is a great cafe now in the old station, and the Bowden Transport Oriented Development (TOD) is steaming ahead.
The Swap Meet is inspired by those championed by Sydney brand Deus Ex Machina, and this event will be a drawcard for everyone from fashionistas to bike enthusiasts, and the opportunity to find a bargain will appeal to young and old alike.
Deus clothing will be on sale from $10, and popular G-Star footwear from $50. Now you won't find anything else quite like these at your local markets.
It should generate an interesting symbiotic event, with girls flocking for the fashion while boys (naturally attracted by the prospect of lots of girls) will of course have their eyes firmly on bicycles.
Bowden is becoming such a hip and happening place with the redevelopment project. Coincidentally, I was just mentioning to a friend that we should really check out the area with its new injection of life. Curious as to how the area is looking these days.
