The perfect outfit could be out there, waiting for you. For the last few months, years or longer, it could've just been hanging in someone else's wardrobe. Isn't that the thrill that gets everyone heading to a secondhand market? We're all thinking the same thing: what if someone else's trash really is our very own treasure?
Excess Baggage operates on that idea, filled with stalls and tables of pre-loved wares looking for a new home. If you have your own bits and pieces that you no longer need, keep an eye out for future events — but if you're keen to pick up a bargain while browsing through fashion, homewares, books and more, then make a beeline to Paddington's BrisWest Centre.
The secondhand sale runs from 9am–3pm on Saturday, July 21, with music setting the mood. And if all of that perusing makes you work up an appetite, there'll be homemade spring rolls and everyone's favourite market snack — a sausage sizzle.
