  • Always a bargain. I never plan to spend as much and usually end up with things that I needed anyway. Fun place, food is pretty good but eating areas could be presented better - very market, plastic chairs sort of needs updating. Lots of surprising stuff.
  • Great variety of stores/stalls. Some nice cafes and food stalls. Friendly people and some really lovely creatively talented individuals that love a chat about their arts and crafts.
  • Hi,,I would like to share my experience with people who are thinking of buying a pair of shoes,sandals at FOOTWEAR DIRECT,.i purchased a pair of sandals 3 months ago, [leather,supposedly good quality],for $60.00,but the strap stitching came apart. Took them back yesterday,only to be told by rude woman serving that No refunds would be given,unless i had receipt...Who keeps a receipt of a pair of sandals,,???..She wouldn't tell me her name,or how i could get in touch with her employer...Very unprofessional lady,!!!
  • A lot of variety and quite large. Would like to see more artists and local crafts. Good to see they are sprucing the place up a bit.
  • Paulette, the beautiful resident psychic is absolutely amazing! The things she knew were just astounding. I was in tears (in the best way) Do yourself a favor - go see her!!! You'll be so happy you did!! 5 stars all the way!!
