retail fix,...part #1

everyone has favourite shops.....right?

shops that you walk into and simply know you'll find something perfect in.  

people often ask me where i get certain things,..fabric,,...bags etc,..  

so,..i thought i would let you all in on the not-so-secret list of my 'special shops'. i'll break it up into parts though, the list is quite long!

  • newspaper taxi.

247 australia street newtown.

i am crazy about this little store in Newtown, Sydney.  it is a boutique vintage store in the heart of Newtown with a gorgeous collection of vintage pieces, pretty stationery and handmade treasures from around the world...i have bought all sorts of things there,..ranging from religious paintings,.tiny ceramic doves,..a vintage asian birdcage,.and some handcrafted gift cards.

i love it.

  • secondhand rose emporium in brunswick heads.

another gorgeous little vintagey shop.  no website,..and not many pictorial representations online though.  a fabulous place for antique linens,..silver,... gorgeous homewares,..etc.  i bought a divine cane basket for my (non-exsistant bike) there!  it holds all my belts at the moment!
