The Rocks Market Saturday stalls come alive with tourists buzzing, food cooking and a few zany, possibly unheard of 'things' being sold.
Starting on Argyle Street was a stall selling wooden watches and wooden sunglasses designed by an Aussie with a great idea, Bruce McLean, his watches sell from $170 and are to be seen to be believed. The Rocks Market, Sydneyiew here
Further down Argyle Street was a bunch of guitars made out of old cigar boxes and old Arnott's biscuit tins. That's right, biscuit tins are now guitars made and sold by Darryl Shaw. His crazy idea is supported by his wife and draws a crowd when he plays his biscuit guitar to prove that it does work and makes a pretty good sound. The guitars he makes are all unique; prices range from $260 and are truly a collectable.
Then I found Hamish Sevenoaks, a man who has been selling his jewellery from the age of 16 and, 24 years on, is still selling his beautifully painted pieces made from feather light synthetic clay embedded with Swarovski crystals.
