They say that one man's trash is another man's treasure. Well, if you are that man (or woman for that matter) then you are in for a treasure hunter's dream. Wantirna's Trash and Treasure Market is a busy and bustling hub of all things pre-loved and second hand and it is always PACKED. Just driving in the carpark you wouldn't be wrong in thinking you were heading into the Boxing Day sales with how many cars fighting for a spot. The market is fully open air and has a mix of old and new as well as plenty of fresh food and plants. Mamma loves the sound that resonates throughout the aisles as the haggling, negotiating and expert salesmanship takes place.
Mamma's special mention: A pram is highly recommended, not just for a battering ram to fight through the crowds (not really, but apologies to anyone that lost an ankle) but because it would be easy to loose track of a little one in the wave of shoppers.
