My hubby & I ventured to the Brisbane Collectorama Fair this weekend. It consisted of lots of sellers mainly from the Sunshine Coast. I must say it was all a bit too fancy pants antique for my liking, but it was still plenty of fun. My only purchase was a vintage gold bangle with pretty flowers on it. The biggest highlight for me was meeting Claudia Chan-Shaw from the TV show 'Collectors' on the ABC. She was delightful....although I felt like a giant standing next to her :)
I spotted this original green telephone at $795! Oh how I would love a green one....but at that price my grey & beige dial phones will have to do!
I wore an original vintage cotton maxi dress that I bought from a dingy op shop for $15. I love the bright fabric & the original metal zipper. Being cotton it is very cool in summer & easy to wear. I teamed it with some green beads & a cute tapestry brooch & a tooled leather handbag.
