Britannia Rules the Waves
Old things are fascinating and popular with many folks. At Britannia Antiques on Bribie Island, you will find lots to talk about and perhaps you will purchase an interesting item as a memento of your holiday or day trip to this wonderful destination.



The shop is not cluttered and has a wide variety of items including, but not limited to, beautiful china collections, silverware, military mementos, books, records, and you can even buy Australian pennies.

It is quite an adventure exploring the items in the shop and on the footpath outside, where they have one of my favourite things! Fantastic baskets! There is quite a range different sizes, uses, shapes etc and you will find that they are probably the best price of any basket store in Queensland.

One of the interesting items I found, was the Rules for School Teachers from 1879 & 1915. Did you know that one of the duties for teachers in the late 1800's was to "fill lamps, and clean the chimneys before beginning work"? A good read!



The shop is on First Avenue, just a short walk from the jetty, and is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm, and closed on Mondays.
