A Spot of Shopping Mathilda's Style

Have you ever been to Mathilda's Markets? I know there are a lot of you that already know the secret joys there are to be had from such a jaunt, but for me it was something that had only made it onto my wish list... till two Sunday's ago that is! :)

We were visiting my Brother and SIL in Canberra for the weekend (trying to escape Sydney's rain!), so when my SIL told me that Mathilda's were on, I was like "Let's Go!!!". The venue was the gorgeous Albert Hall. I've always wanted to go inside, and it didn't disappoint. It's not fancy inside by any means, but the windows are huge, and sunlight just floods the entire room. I just wish I'd had the presence of mind to take a photo of it!

Anyway, I thought I'd share with you some of the spoils of our trip (some, because the choc mint cupcakes and macaroons didn't last long enough to get photographed, and I didn't get any shots of what my SIL picked up, and some of her stuff was bliss).

A visit to Sweet Sista found a little something for me, and a little something for the boys.

I picked up a cool applique shirt each for the boys, the sneaker for Little C, and the hammer for  J. I'm so kicking myself that I didn't get the electric guitar for J - the details on it were incredible - he would have loved it!

And I was so tempted by this store - she has incredibly soft leather shoes for babies and toddlers. I'm just waiting for the baby to arrive to find out what size shoe I will need (I tend to have babies with very long feet!).

I'm thinking I will have to make a bigger effort to get to the ones in Sydney - I just wish they were closer to where I live.
