The fabulous vintage Round She Goes Market is returning to Adelaide for another year. Saturday May 10th (just before Mother's Day) is the first market day at the German Club, 223 Flinders St, Adelaide. The beautiful upstairs hall is where the markets are held and the bistro downstairs will be open to grab some lunch and a drink.
This market is all about pre-loved fashion for women, with designer and vintage clothing and accessories available from a variety of stallholders. There will also be some local designers, handmade jewellery and accessories but the focus is definitely on the retro fashions.
Emma, the fabulous founder of Round She Goes
Emma Morris is the brains and beauty behind the markets. She began the markets in Melbourne in 2008 and in 2012 brought them to her hometown of Adelaide, (in 2013 she also expanded to Sydney). Her love of designer bargains, op shop treasures and getting crafty are what inspired her to start these markets. It has also become a great place where up and coming jewellery and accessory makers are able to showcase their talents to a large audience.
There is around 50 stalls with a mix of professional stallholders/artists, people looking to clear some space in their wardrobes as well as those trying their hand at markets for the first time.
One of the newest additions to the Adelaide market is WinkelKo, with their crocheted infinity scarves and hand painted earrings. They are able to do custom orders so have a chat with them on the day and see what is possible.
An indication of Goska's ever changing stock
Goska Vintage is a regular at the markets, She is a hunter gatherer with a unique style. Although statement pieces are her first love, there is also plenty of pieces that can be worked into your regular wardrobe. Pieces are sourced locally and abroad to stock her pop up shop and prices are kept reasonable to accommodate any budget.
Lastly, but certainly not least, another stall worth a mention is YellowBird with their beautiful handmade vegan clutches and purses. This is also another artist branching out into jewellery. The textures and colour of her polymer clay necklaces and earrings are just stunning.
With an entry fee of just $2 these markets are worth visiting just to soak up the atmosphere and browse the beautiful products. But I would suggest having a bit of cash on hand as there is bound to be something you find irresistible (there is an ATM down stairs if needed). There is change rooms on site to check your purchase is truly perfect. The hall is wheelchair accessible via a lift, and there is plenty of parking on the street and nearby. Really there is no excuse to miss this market, but if you can't make it to the May 10th, they will also be held on Sat 23rd August and Sat 15 Nov.
