Firstly, apologies for taking so long to get a newsletter out! It has been a very busy period since we last communicated and a lot has changed.
If you've been in the shop recently, you will have noticed that some very severe re-arranging has taken place. There are now two aisles in the downstairs area, making things a bit easier to navigate around and see - the upshot has been we've rediscovered stuff that's been hidden away. Come in and you'll notice the difference.
We also had a stall at Motorclassica 2012 in the Melbourne Exhibition Building at the end of October. It looked this this:
We had a really successful time there, but it was hectic! I don't think it's a boast to say that, apart from the beautiful old cars on display, ours was the busiest area for the weekend. There were always people milling around, browsing and buying! Our favourite activity.
We managed to get hold of an original red telephone box a while ago. It was from the Geelong area and was about 50 years old. Of course it didn't last here very long - they never do. We were pleased to deliver it a nursing centre where they specialise in creating an environment for people with alzheimer's and related illnesses. Little did we know how they planned to move it when we delivered it- it made a great photo!
The happiest time of the year will soon be upon us. No doubt you are all under immense pressure to find and purchase the perfect gift. We don't have the perfect gift, but we have many imperfect gifts. Come in and have a look - or browse on-line!
See you soon, either on-line or in person.
Pete and Andrea
