A Vintage Haul in Ballarat

I knew my Aunty D had a super cool shop but I forgot how seriously cool it is. I haven't been there for quite a while...sorry Aunty D...but visited her recently and did a major HAUL spending over 2 hours in there looking in every single cabinet and shelf!

I tried on this dress but unfortunately I couldn't even do up the front buttons. Boo big boobs.

Smile Aunty D! That's my haul there on the counter and she's holding up my dress!

My haul included a 60's Scooter dress in navy and white polkadots, a skirt with an image of 50's ladies all dressed up shopping, a long coral necklace, screw on rhinestone earrings, several scarves, carved celluloid bangles and a gorgeous little polkadot carry straw bag. Very happy!

Her shop is called D's Recycled Fashions in Sebastapol, Ballarat if anyone wants to go browse thru hundreds of vintage clothes. ( Next time I want an advertising discount Aunty D and remember to hold me any 50's swing stuff! )


  1. Oooh! I love vintage shops! If I were in Australia I would probably go to your Aunty D's! Seems like a cool place! Sometimes they are too packed and dirty, but this one looks clean!

  2. I love that shop. It looks so cute and clean.

  3. How cool is that to have an aunty who owns a vintage clothes store, I bet you'll be back soon ^_^ Virginie

  4. Can't wait for you to model your haul. Nice shop! It's fun to go digging around and see what you can find.

  5. I can't imagine how tempted I'd be if I had a relative with a cool vintage shop - lucky you! It sounds like a GREAT haul - eagerly awaiting more pics!

  6. Looks like a great store! I am swooning over that gorgeous silver flapper-esque dress in the top right of the last photo.


Thanks so much for commenting! I read each and every one, even if I am slow to respond sometimes!
