After buying a few souvenirs at various places in Sydney, we went to Paddy's market, and I was chagrined to see that items that I paid $3-4 EACH were selling there for about 4 for one dollar!!
Frugal traveler that I am, I quickly learned this is the place for me! I found lovely embroidered
linens, 4 for $10, coaster sets, 4 for $10, "Croc" shoes, $10 a pair, great tote bags for $3, etc. All this, plus lots and lots of fresh produce on the first floor of this 3-story huge building. Second and third floors resembled any mall you would find any place in the world. Paddy's located in China Town, 5 minutes to Darling Harbor, and about 3 minutes from 555 bus, free bus in Sydney.
