This Emporium definitely lives up to its name
Located an easy 30 minute drive from Ipswich or just under an hour from Brisbane, this emporium sure does live up to its name. They have a great range of unique, fabulous and downright quirky items that will keep you so occupied, you'll lose track of time.
The owners have been very considerate of their customers, organising items into categories. You'll find all the teacups together, a pile of vintage suitcases, green glass, blue glass and a stack of vintage teapots that almost made their way into my kitchen.
I have a lovely friendd who collects vintage kitchen canister sets and I've no doubt she has already scoped out this place. The fellas are not forgotten with metal shed and garden signs, old tools and those timber boxes of bits and pieces that no man can resist a rummage through.
The owners definitely fulfill their promise to take customers on a trip down memory lane. By the time you have satisfied your collectibles curiosity and found that little something to take home, you will have worked up an appetite. This is where Unique and Fabulous has a secret weapon in their next door neighbour.
Located right next door is the fantastic Meaning to Stop Cafe. Check out my articles on this great place and all the other hidden gems that Forest Hill has to offer. If it was me, I'd be making this place the first stop on my Forest Hill day trip or Sunday drive itinerary. Just saying ... with names like Meaning to Stop and Unique and Fabulous Emporium you simply have to stop and take a look.
