Nauti (cal) and Nice
Initially, it was the display of thongs that caught my attention. Thongs? Bribie Island? No surprise! Not that I was looking for such footwear, but they were colourful and different. As I reached the thong display my eyes wandered to what was behind.
What an amazing collection of things old – vintage, old, nautical, quirky, homewares and so much more. Those, like me, with a fascination for such items may well get "lost" wandering and exploring the myriad of items within the walls of the shop.
I had found The Bridge Collection at Bribie!
Among the items listed on their FB page – "We have all sorts of collectables for everyone including nautical, vintage, crystal, t-shirts, hats, old tools, old car rims, kitchen accessories."
The shop is right between the popular Seaclusion Café and the Sylvan Beach Seafood Café – so a great destination on the island. If you are going to the island via the bridge, turn sharp left at the end of bridge and follow the road around.
The Bridge Collection on Bribie is open 6 days a week from 9 am to 3 pm. There's normally plenty of parking nearby too.
