I have worked odd hours, weekends and holidays my entire life past the age of 14 and I always told myself that when I get a “normal” job (Mon-Fri, 9-5) I will take Sundays for myself and do something that I was never able to do when I was working. I love the St.Lawrence Antique Market here in Toronto and have been going ever since I got my “normal” job in February.
As an avid “picker” myself, I know that some objects are marked way up because they know some poor yuppy will buy – I on the other hand end up buying, rarely, if at all. I go for inspiration and to just explore the objects from the past. I love asking where the items come from and digging deeper when I get home to source out more info. Have fun exploring some of the cool stuff I found and I hope you are inspired to check out a market near you! Enjoy!
I get up fairly early and just go by myself, although company is welcomed. The city streets are usually empty Sunday mornings which make for a serene ride. The usual faces are always there and sometimes if I hold out – the items I fawned over the previous week are still sitting on the tables begging for an offer to take them home.
