My Vintage Shop
Here's some photos of my booth H29 in the centre of "The Cool Room" (an old factory freezer room) section of the Waverley Antiques Bazaar 11a Aristoc Rd Glen Waverly open 7 days 10am-5pm. It's a MASSIVE antique centre within a warehouse with 165 stalls, I've been there three times and still not seen all the stalls, I could wonder around in there happily for days. It's a must see for any vintage lover in Victoria. My last visit I bought a second hand turquoise vintage reproduction bike, the kind I've been lusting after for years! And a gorgeous Art Deco ceramic and bakelite kettle. I'll post some pics of those soon along with some other lovely 1930's era items I spotted there.. but for now, my shop....

1930's Lavender "meat safe" or Ice box, for storage of foods before fridges. I repainted this one as it was in need of some love, but it's original colour was lavender too, just a slightly paler shade but a pretty good match.
