Yesterday we walked through the Thames Goldrush Market, and we even bought a few things. Thames closes off two blocks of its main stree, Pollen Street, each year for the Goldrush Market, and people come from all around to sell their goods and wares and food. It was a lot of fun, and we got some yummy goodies.
I met Andrew at his work, and we walked the one block to Pollen Street. As we walked along the street, looking at all the things for sale in the booths, we stopped to talk with a few friends.
At the Goldrush Market, there are plants, art, crafts, tools, collectibles, and food. We bought some orange marmalade for $8 (about $6 US), a pepperoni salami for $25 (about $18.75 US), and some shaver blades for $16 (about $12 US, which is less than they cost in the stores). We also shared a sausage, which cost $2.
All in all, it was a very pleasant way to spend an hour or so, and to get a few items which are special or which cost less than elsewhere.
