|^ We got there early so there weren't many people yet. The markets are like this but 5 times the size.|
|^So many cool finds but what to do with them all?!|

It was about 16 years ago that I heard a work colleague saying she was driving to Berry just to go to the Berry Markets and ever since then I have really wanted to check out the region. I just love scavenging and I love markets and I even love country towns.
During our Berry break, I managed to catch the famous markets and my photos don't really do it justice. They are quite big and I was really pleased to see a lot of regional makers and vendors selling home made goods plus lots of genuine antiques and knick-knacks. Some really unusual things.
I walked way with two antique suitcases. One aluminium with a navy spot lining and previously belonged to a Qantas pilot and the other stripy with gold embossed initials! Love them.
There were some really cool finds and I tried to take lots of pics so you can see the awesome variety of amazing finds.
I would definitely like to go back. The Berry Markets are on the first Sunday of the month (except February). All up I'd say 3 days and 2 nights would be the perfect amount of time to spend in Berry tasting, shopping and marketing.
