Surry Hills Market, Sydney – Part 2

Lifestyle, Culture

I have some more photos to share of last Saturday’s trip to the Surry Hills Market. You can see part 1 here.

I love the unexpected discoveries of flea markets, rummaging through junk to find your treasures – the only thing you need is a few dollars and a little time… I think that it’s these little finds collected over the years, that adds substance to a home.

Tanya Stubbles is an artist based down on the South Coast of NSW and has a store at the markets selling some of her inspiration for her artwork. Self described as a social landscape painter; she uses materials that explore the Australian identity. I took a look at her site and what a discovery! I was particularly interested in her bowling club numbers at the stand and found that she has done a whole series on it – absolutely stunning work. I will definitely be following this artist.

In case that you haven’t noticed, I’ve got a bit of a thing for displays (here and here)  so I was instantly drawn to the collection of vintage pool balls, they’d look great in a glass jar wouldn’t they?

I hope that you enjoyed coming along with me to the Surry Hills Market. Enjoy your day everyone and see you on Friday!
