A new era

Forever the tardy bloggist, at least now I have a good excuse.
I've opened a shop. That's right. And again. I've opened a shop.
I've opened a shop with my friend Liz, and it's at the Woolloongabba Antiques Centre, which is a happier place than Disneyland if you ask me.
It's called.
It's a gut-wrenching, heart-wrenching, exciting, yet nauseating roller coaster ride opening your own 'store'. At the moment, now open for business, we're in the eye of the storm. Will anyone love our things? So far, yes. That pair of white chairs pictured below sold in the first few hours.
We've kicked off with a Spring time theme, complete with lawn, and the focus on verandah style furniture.
Who wouldn't love this - three pieces chock-full of fabulousness.

 This gorgeous two seater is one of my favourite pieces.
We have a blog which you can look at here, where we show what's in-store and preview bits and pieces that are on their way. If you are looking for anything in particular, no matter how obscure, let us know. Since we're scouring, fossicking and trawling anyway, we may just find what you're looking for.
If you find yourself in Woolloongabba, drop in and have a look. You can see Woolloongabba Antiques Centre's website here.
Until next time.....

  6. Congratulations, hope all goes well and you get off to a great start.
    You do realsie this will make a huge difference to your home, as things from the shop slowly replace some of what you have, what fun, swapping shop to home and home to shop, life will be a constant treasure hunt and lovely satisfaction of finding beautiful pieces for new owners to appreciate.

  8. Wow congratulations on Era! Wish I was in Brisbane to actually see it in person. Wishing you all the best. Tania
