Calling all Antique Lovers
I have often wandered about the jam-packed halls of Southside Antique Centre. Spending far too much time wondering about the past lives of all these treasured goods. Resisting the temptation to take them all home.

Yes, I confess, I am a lover of all things old. But, they have warmth and character. They have stood the test of time. Without sounding 108 years old, they just don't make things like they use to.

If you have read my past articles, you will also know that I have a soft spot for this little strip on the south side called Annerley Junction. So, when two of my loves collide - well (unfortunately for the husband) lots of money is usually spent.

So, rather than me taking home all these treasures, I am sharing this gem with you.

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time. There is lots to be seen. Perhaps mark your 30th anniversary with the traditional gift of pearls.

Or maybe a 2nd year anniversary modern china gift for your loved one?

My Mum tells me these Mugs were left in the pubs for men to have their soothing ale in after a hard days work.

Let's face it, if you can't find your antique treasure here, well, maybe it doesn't exist! This collection of pastels nearly came home with me, but it is still there for you to covet.

And, naturally, asides from all the lovely knick-knacks, and household paraphernalia (not to mention stunning lamps),

There is a whole section dedicated to vintage and antique fashion! I have been know to buy some beautiful (and one-of-a-kind) accessories to adorn a Race Carnival outfit.

But perhaps you could even find a stunning vintage gown for your upcoming nuptials?

If you are after something more substantial, there is a vast collection of antique furnishings - from tables and chairs, to chests and cupboards, and everything in between.
