Cool stuff in Strath!

On Saturday Mr M thought that it was a good day to go for a drive to Strathalbyn. It is about 25 minutes from us and has LOTS of antique and collectible shops. Every August the town holds 'Strathalbyn Collectors, Hobbies and Antiques Fair'. This year Tim Wonnacott  from Bargain Hunt is making an appearance. I have been seeing his mug on the back of  public transport lately. You know the guy who matches his glasses to his bow tie, seems to really like pink and has teeth only a mother could love? Might even try and go this year as we have never been before. Anyway,  there is one shop in Strath that I LOVE, there is soooo much to look at. We had a squiz and I took some pics, then walked up High Street to check out some others shops. Mr M ended up waiting outside with the kids because Master M decided it was very boring and we didn't really trust him not to break anything. I didn't spend long in the shops because they were waiting for me but also because when you normally go to garage sales the prices in antiques shops seem way over the top. One place wanted $30 for a Pyrex mixing bowl that wasn't even in the best condition. I just get a bit frustrated with this as I am a bargain hunter. 

These pics are from the cool place called 'Antique Bazaar of Strathalbyn'.

 Had to hold myself  back from these groovy green canisters. Ahh.

Seems just like yesterday...

 Lots of good stuff going on here.

 So cute cupboard and of course scales (one of my favourite things).

I took this pic for the gorgeous 'bathing beauty' bottom right. Isn't she just adorable.

Loads of green Depression glass. I think this lot was mainly uranium (pricey).

This little iron did tempt me. So sweet.


Nice legs!

Hmm. Dad used to use those Castrol drums as rubbish bins in his shed!

Where do you start?

A little bit of vintage fashion.

 Do you think this would look good in the extension? Hee Hee

 One of my Nanas had one of these high chairs. Brings back memories.

Little Miss Cutie (or is that Scary - I'm not sure) and Big Ears Frank.


 Mr M and I had a chuckle at this sign at another antique shop across the road.

Hope you are having a fantastic day!


  1. Oh what fun I would have no clue where to look 1st but most like the Vintage clothes Id say.I love all that green and those cannisters are gorgeous.

  2. great pics...I could get lost in them...thanks for sharing x

  3. Hi Sherry, love the blue/green cabinet, too cute, but I bet it cost a bomb. Ohh, is that where they are going to be doing Bargain Hunt (downunder), I was wondering where they could possible go. Cool.

  4. Looks like a fun shop! Love all the green glass. And the toy kitchen appliances were cute!


This is the best bit, would love you to leave me a Vintage Hello!
