A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
Do your Christmas shopping early here
Christmas is once again approaching at a very rapid speed!
This means, for many of us, that we have to think of gifts to buy for friends and family. This is sometimes a real challenge and many of us often leave this shopping till the last minute.
Now you can escape the rush of shopping malls late in December and do your gift buying earlier this Christmas with some lovely independent, handcrafted designer brands. These will be all together at Precinct 75 Summer Design Fair.
Are you buying a Christmas tree this year? If you would like one that has that lovely fresh smell, you can even buy these here. They will be fresh 5 and 6 foot trees which will be available to buy on the day and continue to be available throughout December.
If plants are your thing or you want to buy plants for a friend, then you can find some lovely healthy ones for the home from the mega Pop-Up Plant Sale.
And you will not go hungry at this event! There will be food and drinks available by Precinct 75's wonderful food outlets. They will have a delicious range of yummy food, including the following firms and foods:
Rice Pantry - will be serving Vietnamese street food
Willie The Boatman will have your beer
Buttercream Bakery will have dessert
In case you are a vegan or vegetarian, there will also be more international eats options at the fabulous foodies and farmers markets. They will have many food trucks to stave off those hunger pangs and take care of your tummies over the weekend.
For the children, there will be covered jumping castles as well as face painting.
The address for the venue is 75 Mary Street, St Peters and it will be on from 9.00 am until 4.00 pm.
It is just a 5-minute walk from Sydenham and St Peters railway stations, so you need not worry about parking your car! However, if you want to drive, parking is available on location at Precinct 75 via Edith street, otherwise, there is plenty of on-street parking.
And the good news for all you pet lovers is that Precinct 75 is a pet-friendly event, so you can bring your dogs as long as they are on a lead at all times.
This is a FREE event, however, you can find out more, and register for this event at this Facebook link.
