Madison & Montana at The Village Markets

Now that I am on summer holidays I finally have the opportunity to do some of my favourite things that I have been missing so much, one being my fortnightly Sunday morning visits to the Village Markets.

The Village Markets

Last Sunday we were all fed up with study, so spent the rainy day exploring one of our new locals, The Village Markets.

Despite a torrential downpour descending on the Gold Coast for the entire morning the rain stopped for the entire time we were there, allowing me to snap up a couple of bargains, satisfying my shopping urge while sticking to the student budget.  I bought a couple of exciting little things that I can’t wait to post about.
