The weekly Penrith markets. Full of all the crap you don’t need. Thankfully the weather was perfect, unfortunately the company wasn’t. It seemed every bogan imaginable had stumbled out of bed to buy $5 knock-off t’shirts and $1 toothbrushes. There was heaps of Asian adult and kids clothes stalls. By the time I made it to the end (where all the good stuff appeared to be) everyone was starting to close up. The vintage goods lady Alice recommended had half the stuff back in her car by the time I found her. Oh well.
… but I resisted. I did find some pretty shoes though.
After the markets I wandered over to the shopping center. Myer was my first stop and as I made my way to the cosmetic counters I stumbled across this… Christmas stuff… EVERYWHERE. Nothing really new or exciting. I guess I bought most of my collection last year.
After a very unsuccessful attempt at finding the perfect red, I skipped over to Diva. My favourite jewelry store. I didn’t find anything new that I wanted. By this point I’m getting a bit depressed but then I look down at my feet and see my smashing new pair of silver sandals and I’m happy again.
I dropped into BigW and bought a 2nd remote for the Wii so Steve and I can battle it out against each other in Tennis, our fave game. While I was waiting at the counter I saw our iPod. Just a 4GB I think, $167 isn’t too bad. Having seen the colours in person I think I’m torn between Orange or Lime.
Whilst wearily walking towards the food court to refuel I stumbled across this new shop “Rubi Shoes”. It’s new to Penrith anyway. I think it’s a sister store to Cotton On. The shoes were really cute and quite affordable. If you see this store walk in and check it out.
I fell in lust with these white beauties ($39.95) at Rubi Shoes. All the shoes are Target prices so they’re great if the purse strings are a bit tight. I would have bought them but I’d already bought 2 pairs and didn’t want Steve to have a hissy-fit… maybe next payday 😉
Finally after all my lusting was done I made it to the food court and headed straight for my favourite little Kebab Place for a K’Baby. It’s like a miniature version of a kebab, the perfect sized tummy filler. It’s made fresh and tastes oh so good. Although I am craving the Chicken Curry I had in Brisbane… why oh why isn’t it here yet?
