2015 is shaping up to be a big year for 'Round She Goes markets. Their first market for the year in Adelaide is on Saturday, 2 May, the weekend before Mother's Day. It's a great opportunity to grab a pressie for Mum or spend a girl's day out. The markets will be held upstairs at the beautifully appropriate German Club, 223 Flinders St, Adelaide and the bistro will be open to grab some lunch or to take a drinks break.
Round She Goes markets are a fabulous vintage market full of preloved and designer clothing and accessories for women. There is a variety of stall holders: professional marketeers, those doing a 'once off' to clear some space in their wardrobe as well as those trying their hand at market selling for the first time. There are also local designers and hand made jewellery and accessories, but the focus is definitely on the retro clothing.
Goska Vintage is one of the regular stall holders who focus is firmly on retro fashion. She is a self proclaimed 'hunter gatherer' who loves statement pieces as well as blending a unique vintage piece into an everyday wardrobe. Pieces are sourced locally and abroad with prices kept reasonable, so we can all indulge in a little Goska Style.
Alliecat Design Studio is one of the stalls that falls into the 'local, handmade' category. These wonderful, bohemian inspired jewellery pieces use czech glass beads and other mixed media. The majority of these pieces are one of a kind or very limited in number. So if stunning and unique is your mantra for jewellery, be sure to check out this stall.
Emma Morris began these markets in Melbourne in 2008, 4 years later she brought them to her hometown, Adelaide, then in 2013 expanded to Sydney with plans to expand further in 2015. Last year she also started the Round She Goes online market, for all of us who enjoy some 24/7 vintage shopping.

You can still shop locally with the online market, with one of the Adelaide shops being Retro and Roses. They have a beautiful collection of vintage dresses, handbags, hats and other accessories. Another Adelaide shop, worth mentioning, on the online market is Vintage Circus with it's stunning collection of vintage jewellery, mainly from the 40's, 50's and 60's.

At the Adelaide markets there will be around 50 stalls, so the $2 entrance fee is worth it just wander, soak up the atmosphere and do a bit of window shopping. However I would suggest having some cash on you, there is bound to be a temptation too seductive to walk past (there is an ATM on site if needed). There is wheelchair access and plenty of parking. All up, it is certain to be a fabulous day out!
