It’s hard with weather – the price for not getting rain is sometimes scorching sun. The No Frills Bike Swap today certainly was on the warm side. Despite the heat, it was a great day. This was our first West End event and the first at this venue: the Kurilpa Community Childcare Centre. I’m biased, my son Vincent goes there, but I think the centre has a remarkable feel to it. It’s relaxed, it’s welcoming, it’s fun.
There was a big turn out – 22 stallholders and plenty more buyers – rolling throughout the morning and into the early afternoon. The sausages and iced coffees were a hit, the cakes hit their mark and water was in constant demand. How often do you get to set up a swap stall in a playground?
There were plenty of frames walking out with new owners, lots of transactions being made. It will be good to see how many new builds pop up at Pushies Galore in July as a result.
A big thank you to Kurilpa for letting us use their space, thank you to the sellers (particular Peter McLennan who drove up from Grafton) and thanks to everyone that came along to join in the fun.
