Vintage Retro Restorable Recycled
Today I finally had time to check out a new shop I'd heard about at Rocklea, on the corner of Granard Rd and Balham St (the street that leads to Bunnings).

From the street is looks quite small. Well, it is not. The shop, the garages and the yard are FULL of treasures. Don't imagine you can call in for a quick look. You will need time to search high and low and explore.

Don't you want to explore?

I had my eye on some lovely white bench seats. I was told they came from Big Vintage (which has closed) but they no longer have a big price tag.

One room is packed with clothing and accessories. The array of china, glass and crystal is just gorgeous. Everywhere you look there is something that will remind you of Mum or Granny.

Hosting a high tea? You need these.[I

So much clothing! Image by writer.


I noticed they had one lonely gold tea cup and saucer that matched two I happen to have. I was able to sell them and put the cash towards a lovely crystal dome to hide my cheeses from the flies. A win-win transaction.

Next time you go to Bunnings make sure you call in for a look. If you should drive past - don't panic. Just go round the block. You can park at the back of the shop.
