When it comes to tools and cameras, people can be divided into two groups: the vintage-loving types who intentionally seek out pre-loved treasures, and the gadget-loving types who are always on the lookout for the latest equipment.
No matter which camp you’re in – or if you move back and forwards between the two of them – you will find the tools and cameras you’re after in Camberwell.
Between the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market and the wider Camberwell shopping precinct, you’ll find specific tools for the garage, garden or a hobby, or that state-of-the-art camera to help you capture life’s magic moments.
Discover hidden treasures at Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market
At Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market, you’ll find collectors of rare cameras and photographic paraphernalia rubbing shoulders with photography students looking for discounted second-hand gear.
Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market is a great place to pick up a bargain. Professional photographers often sell cameras and accessories they consider to be outdated equipment, but which is fine for amateur photographers to give a second life.
Of course, there’s no such thing as outdated when it comes to tools. What some people see as old, others see as timeless classics.
Every weekend, keen gardeners and home renovators scour the market stalls for their favourite tools that are no longer being manufactured. Perhaps they’re in search of a new handle for their favourite saw, a specific drill bit, or a screwdriver that’s exactly the right size.
Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market is an Aladdin’s cave for those in search of old tools to break up for spare parts.
Artisans and fine craftsmen will also often find jewellery and wood cutting tools amongst the market’s treasures.
