RETRO SURVIVES...Yeah Baby !!!

In the shop now is this amazing 1970's Retro Bar complete with lights which are just underneath the orange vinyl panel. There are also 2 bar stools included in the price. The stools are useable now but could do with recovering later on.

Very Austin Powers !!!

What can I say.....after footing it around the Lifeline Bookfest today with Glen, Jo and Kerri...the car boot is FULL (and here's the photo to prove it)

New Treasures found ...

Well...with christmas and new year all over for another year, it is hard to believe that we are already nearly 1/2 way through the first month of 2012.....and there are already chocolates on the shelves for Easter !!! We have not stopped either, finding new treasures for you to admire and consider. This weeks collection includes a 1920's Bentwood Carver chair in amazing condition, a vintage walking doll (has been very loved...) an early brass / copper bed pan, a McCredie Australian Pottery Tea Pot with matching sugar bowl and 2 cups and saucers.....perfect for the Australian Pottery collector.
And it seems that hi-tea's are still the in thing, so we have a good selection of English trio's, just perfect for that morning or afternoon get together. Enjoy, and hope to see you at The Vintage Advantage soon.

Dine in Style the RETRO way.

Want to add some retro flavour to your outdoor dining experience, then we have just added new to the shop, this Retro 5 piece outdoor setting, with original vinyl seating...WOW !








Ready to re-open 03 Jan 2012

After days of cleaning shuffling and sorting, we are now ready for 2012. It was amazing what we found hidden underneath other items, behind cabinets, on top of cupboards.....but alas, we soldiered on. Now the shelves are restocked, the cabinets are full, the clothes racks are overflowing, ready to re-open for another year.
