Margaret River: Lions Market
Get There: Lions Club Shed, Burton Road, Margaret River
Open: 8:30am – 12:30pm the second and fourth Saturday of the month
Head to the Lions Club Shed early in the morning every second Saturday of the month, and you’ll find a crowd of bargain hunters waiting to bash the warehouse door down and launch themselves at the cheap goodies inside. Broke backpackers, thrifty families and crafty oldies will fight tooth and nail over the sea of books, clothes, shoes, hats, furniture, household goods, bicycles and surfboards on offer. Essentially, the market is a giant garage sale, and the prices are insane. The signs may claim it’s $5 for a bag of clothes, but by the time you get to the cashier, they’ll usually decide to give you everything for a buck or two. The doors officially open at 8:30, but we recommend getting there at 8 purely for entertainment purposes (and to munch on a sausage in bread).
