I went to the last Sunday Best and can recommend it as a lovely way to spend an afternoon – especially when it’s gin and tonic weather (hello summer) and you have friends to share it with. Unlike many markets, there was no shortage of nicely dressed chaps and I snaffled a good quality pair of ’40s dress pants from one of them on the day.
As well as the jumble sale there will be live music, a BBQ on the roof, bar priced drinks, Sweet Jelly Roll DJs, barbers doing mens cuts and shaves, and for the ladies: sets in the salon. I liked the plates of home-made cakes they had last time – a nice and homely touch.
What: Sunday Best Jumble Sale
When: Sunday February 7th from 1pm to 6pm

There are currently a few stalls still available for stall holders wishing to sell clothing, shoes, records and bric-a-brac exclusively from the 20â€™s- 60â€™s. The stalls will be a fee of $20 and set up between 10am-1pm on the Sunday. There are opportunities for stalls both inside and on the roof in the sunshine, so its first in best dressed(pun intended!). We will provide a 2m x 1m table, 2 chairs per stall holder. You will need to bring your own coat hangers and clothing rails or any other display items.
