WAC Frock Friday

Today's pics are taken at the glorious Woolloongabba Antique Centre, a must do for any Brisbane vintage lover. It just happens to be one of my favourite places to hang out, and they make great coffee. This green crimplene zip front frock with pockets was from my local Salvos store for $4.

Here's a couple of frocks that caught my eye at Kitty's stall. I've had my eye on that pink & green floral frock for ages....maybe I'll actually try it on next time if it's still there.

A shipping map caught Mr P's eye, although he was rather restrained & decided against it.

                                                Sideboard delights

                                   A gorgeous old dentists draw.

                    Yay for a family of kitsch deer....only $45! Eeekk!

How strange that I found those weird cat salt & pepper shakers from a local op shop a few weeks ago for $3. I had no idea of their history, so I was glad to stumble across some here.

Mr P & I are off for a long weekend at the Sunshine Coast for our wedding anniversary. The amount of stuff I have packed for one weekend is utterly ridiculous! I think I have 5 jackets, 8 frocks & 7 cardigans & 5 pairs of shoes. I am absolutely dreading packing for New Zealand! I think I need to join over-packers anonymous. Thank you too for those of you that left some lovely comments regarding my health issues. I do appreciate your care, & thanks for helping me to see that I don't necessarily have to hide that part of my life from the blog world.

Any Brisbanites should check out a fabulous garage sale on Saturday at Mitchelton, with all proceeds going to my friend Amara & her medical treatment. There will be all sorts of vintage & retro goodies on sale.....I wish I could be there, but the Caloundra op shops are calling me this weekend!
