Sadly though, many shops are now weeding out their wares, and trying to display a more boutique approach. That just won't do... I love weeding through the piles of miss-matched crockery.
I do however, try to contribute a little bit to each community I visit.
Today, bliss of bliss - I found a shop dedicated to the love of RETRO !
THE RETRO SHOP in Finley, in Southern New South Wales... heaven on a stick!
Bec, the owner is knowledgeable about her topic and has a wide selection of well displayed items for sale.
It is always lovely to find items priced reasonably and correctly labelled. Part of my slightly obsessive nature, is that I cannot stand to see items with an incorrect tag. I feel that if the wrong information is passed on, that could dissuade a future collector.
You can find Bec and her shop on Facebook. Better still, if you are in the area..... call in and see for yourself!!
On another note...here's my latest purchase : A beautiful green art-glass vase. It is hand blown and a tree is formed on either side. Sweet! It may not be very old, but something about it called to me from the dark recess of the stallholders stand
