I recently discovered that a car-boot sale takes place every Sunday morning in the nearby suburb of Browns Bay. It's a great old-style market in the massive open car-park with a huge array of new and vintage wares displayed on trestle tables and blankets laid down on the concrete. I found a Meakin jug and bowl with a leafy pattern, a pretty hexagonal floral plate, and these miniature knitted toys made by a granny from Hamilton. Too cute! The Browns Bay market will definitely become a regular Sunday morning activity from now on.
