I was thinking I needed some easy slip on shoes for work, and had planned to head to Westfield Garden City.
As luck would have it, I was meeting John Stefulj at a cafe near the ABC building, South Bank.
I passed the Brisbane Sunday Markets on Queen Street, right in front of Treasury Casino. This is a sort of “suitcase market”, people open their suitcases, and sell clothes and shoes, and other items.
I walked idly through and eyed a gorgeous pair of olive green Doc Martens. Before I could get there another woman was trying them on, and bought them – for $6!
Omg! I paid more attention.
Eventually I picked up these shoes, which were what I originally had in mind anyway, for $5.
Later, my dessert at Champ Kitchen and Bar came late, so the manager removed it from my bill. Pleased! ☺
