NEW FRIENDS

Sydney folks may know that today was the Garage Sale Trail, a day where everyone and anyone sells their wares on the street and in cafes and out of cars and at market stalls. It's a garage sale gone mad, all over town and from all kinds of people. Among the locals, a range of makers and craftspeople had stalls too. I spent most of my morning volunteering over at the Sydney Story Factory, but had time in the afternoon to hit my new favourite, The Paramount Coffee Project on Campbell Street who were hosting some stalls (such a shame it wasn't open last year when I lived just across the road).

They usually share their space with the babes of Tokyobike, and for the last little while have also had a pop-up from Pop Plant. They make real sweet concrete pots and I happened upon these two and just couldn't go home without them. Thankfully, they came with a little bit of information to keep them happy and green.
