El Patina

I suspected that the Urbanscapes folks ran out of ideas and organised a jumble sale at the House on a peak weekend. They called it El Patina and it featured an eclectic mix of post-modern hippie items as well as some local homemade creations.

Some of the items were quite interesting however, but it was a shame as I was not in the mood for any shopping. Browsing the stalls reminded me on my Sunday morning trips during my student days at car boot sale lots. Plenty of bargains and mostly second hand - or pre-loved as they called it now.

For the bargain hunters, there was always pasar karat at China Town ... only about five minutes away.

I wasn't sure if the event was a one-off or something that they were developing as a weekend fare. The items and the whole setup looked too organise for this to be an impromptu idea. I might visit hem again should I be in the mood for shopping in the future ....
