PICTURES: Unique finds at Take 2 Market

FROM THE WEEKEND: Square Market in Bendigo

A TAKE 2 Market attracted hundreds of vintage hunters to Bendigo on Sunday.

People travelled from across Victoria to visit Bendigo Town Hall for the event.

Killians Walk Fashions owner Sue Kersting recently closed her send-hand clothing business.

She said she was now selling clothes through her own personal contacts and markets such as Take 2.

"I have always had the business but I have been doing the Take 2 markets for about five years," she said.

"I wanted to retire and put more effort into being a grandmother so I closed up the business.

"At the markets you get a real mix of people.

"I get to see my regular shoppers from the store.

"I always have a great market.

"I have been flat out this morning.

"My clothes come from a couple of girls in Melbourne who collect second-hand clothes for me and they have stayed with me even though the business has stopped."

Donna Smith was shopping with daughter Janae.

"She is buying for her and I am buying for a costume," Ms Smith said.

Susanna Bell found a vintage Marc Jacobs cardigan at the market.

Event organiser Rina Chia said it was good to have the market visit new areas such as Bendigo.

"This is our second year in Bendigo," she said.

"We are always trying to reach out to new audiences."

Ms Chia said the market would return to Bendigo towards the end of the year as part of Bendigo Renault Fashion Week.

The event will take place from September 28 to October 4.
