Anna, I'm very happy to oblige ...

I recently visited Helidon, a small village just off the Warrego Highway and a bit over an hour out of Brisbane on the edge of the Lockyer Valley. Originally an agricultural settlement, underneath the lush pastures lay internationally renowned sandstone and mineral water.

Above ground is Cantelope Fashions, operating for over 18 years in Helidon, which in itself is a feat in one of those townships that if "you blinked, you would miss it".

Housed in one of the older buildings in town I was amazed by both the vibrancy and the range of women's fashions within the store. Dresses, coats, hats, shirts and shoes fill the retail outlet and it was a delight to see a wide range of sizes, especially after all the Corona comfort eating.

Many labels were familiar to me, though the prices were less expensive than those in the city stores.

Is it wrong to admit that I really enjoyed a day in the Lockyer Valley by firstly purchasing something for myself instead of the grandchildren?

Cantelope Fashions is located at 14 Railway Square, Helidon, and is open from Monday to Fridays from 10am till 5:30pm.

Tip: There is a parkland area outside Cantelope Fashions where you can leave the blokes for thirty minutes and they can follow a history trail. Now that's good shopping, don't you agree?
