On weekends in other cities - I pretty much do the same things as I do on regular weekends - haunt antique stores. Last weekend in Sydney I visited Newtown Old Wares.
It's one of many antique/vintage/retro shops along King st and was chock full of treasures.
My favourite was the below flamingo garden sculpture. I've been on the look out for one since spotting a plastic one at The Best Little Vintage Van in Vegas
Unfortunately I had to leave him there. Although the thought of bringing him home as hand luggage on the flight back did make me smile..
I'd love this little tiled table for deck..
What a great wall. These phones remind me of my grandmother..
My verdict - lots of great stuff - but certainly at Sydney prices. I thought that since there were so many shops along King st - the competition would help keep prices down - but evidently not. I saw a Trecthikoff print for $550!! I'll be sticking with my old faithful Woolloongabba Antiques Centre thank-you-very-much..
