For the first time since the kids have been born, we spent an absolute FULL day doing all the antique stores in Geelong. The Sexy Man and I loved it but the kids got a little sick of it, altho they were such troopers.
We promised them the whole next day at the beach and the following helped immensely:
Giving Miss 5 her own camera to photograph all her favourite things. This kept her quiet for hours! I wished we had thought of it 10 years ago.....
And letting Miss 12 take her book along and dumping her in a chair in the shop somewhere.
A vintage plus size mannequin
My dream table! It had been fully restored too....but also had a fully restored price tag.
Another super cute set which I'd have also liked.
I'll be back?
A 50's caravan, still all original.
Clothes stacked to the ceiling. None of this was out for sale...it was all very frustrating.
Advertising tins. I have almost all of these in my collection!
And lastly, we zipped into a modern homewares and reproductions store and a good bulk of their furniture was 60's inspired. I loved the Ivory and Blue setting, but they were all horrendously expensive.
