The Secret is Out...We're in the WAC!!!

Here it is! The secret project is no longer...we have now opened shop number 2, in the fabulous Woolloongabba Antique Centre.

So now you know what I've been working on so feverishly. I've spent the past couple of days setting everything up...I now regard myself as a complete pro with a cordless drill, LOL!

We're starting off with a variety of retro and fashion and crustic goodies, many of which I've had hidden away for months specially for this shop.


This 1960s Sony portable record player is a beaut and totally works too. Upping the kitsch factor is the woven plastic 50s bullfighter plate.

Lots of fun anodised lamps and other bits and pieces....

Tapestry and embroidery cushions and kits....even a bit of German pottery.

Some fab 1950s glasses...yes I had trouble letting these go.

And a selection of vintage footstools, the black one in the middle still has it's original woodchip stuffing.



I am sooooooooooo glad to know that things are going well enough to open a second shop, yeahhhhhhhhhhhh. I just wish I could visit, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Your unit in the Antiques Centre looks delightful, so many gorgeous treasures!
Love the trunk and suitcases, and I am always a sucker for pretty 50s glassware. Fancying a rummage among your frocks too!
Congratulations on the new venture, hope it goes well.
PS. If you have time (and I appreciate you're busy) I would love you to cast your expert eye over a dress I've featured in my latest post - I think it's 1920s or 30s but you would be able to date it better than me. Thanks love! xxxxxxx
