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.
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.
The owner and her family are friendly and helpful. Image by writer.

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.
