Evandale Markets are held every Sunday in a sweet little village about 15 minutes from Launceston. It is always a bit of a treasure trove for me, though we often just go for something to do and don't always come out with something. There are a variety of stalls - fresh produce, plants, clothing, bric a brac, books, jam, pastries, cakes and inside the hall there are lots of stalls selling vintage and antique items. I am pretty fond of the indoor stalls, though it gets pretty crowded inside and hard to manoeuvre a pram around in. Last weekend we went for a drive to Evandale for something to do and had a wander around inside.
Squinting in the sun.
C's favourite homemade jams.
A statue of famous Australian painter, John Glover. Evandale has several statues around town. It is also the home of the annual pennyfarthing championship.
This is one of my favourite outdoor stalls. Sometimes the displays are too lovely though and I don't want to take anything away.
I loved this vintage anatomy poster and wished I could have bought it for my sister!
One of my favourite indoor stalls has a cabinet full of old childrens toys.
I was pretty taken by this pram. Had it not had a 'sold' sticker on it, I think I'd be wheeling Theo around in it as we speak!
On our way out of town we saw that there was a cat show on - we have been to a couple and C really can't resist. Of course, Theo was pretty fascinated and there was a lot of "Cat!" "Cat!" "Cat!" going on.
Seeing animals in cages isn't great fun, but there weren't any cats that looked unhappy or distressed. Most of them are ridiculously friendly and affectionate and I suppose they're used to it. I guess that's the life of a show cat!
I thought this photo of Theo trying to slap the camera out of the way was pretty funny.
A lovely weekend.
