Three things I liked about this event:
1. AC! Yes, I sound like a spoilt, sheltered Singaporean but honestly speaking, given our temperamental weather, you really won't know when it rains or shines so it being indoors is a huuuge plus point.
2. Friendly sellers - loved the whole meet-the-seller atmosphere.
3. Affordable trinkets and goods - perfect for the still-unemployed.
Some of the more interesting vendors include:
. Holy Ash
. In Merry Motion (these girls are so cute!)
Something I noticed though, apart from one milkshake store, a couple of booths sold baked goodies didn't seem to receive much fanfare. Given how peckish I usually am, even I wasn't tempted to buy anything to snack on.
Perhaps it's the idea that food should be made or assembled on the spot, otherwise it might be perceived at not being appetizing or sanitary. That said, I'm sure the lack of electricity or rather, powerpoint circuits must have limited what the organizers and sellers set out to achieve.
And my stash:
I have always liked the stuff from When I Was Four | 小时候 and was thrilled to see them at the flea market. Though I hardly use notebooks these days, I had to get the Chwee Kueh notebook that came with a postcard.
