Star Sale

What do you get when you combine the following
1. A bunch of retro vintage shoppers
2. A warehouse sale
3. A sign saying nothing over $10
4. Wallets with a bunch of $10 notes

Well most of the retro/vintage shoppers of Melbourne also had the same idea, which was shop like a crazy person while you can get some great deals. Especially since the prices were $10 dress/jackets, $5 skirts/shirts/pants, $1 rings/sunglasses.

So after a lunch of yummy food and wonderful coffees we headed to one of the backstreets of Brunswick in search of new/old finds to make us smile. The interesting thing about this shopping trip is that all the members of the group are into different eras and styles. Including 1940, 1950, 1960 and 1970's plus the ideas of mod, classic, alternative.

Which meant as a team of 7 we could go through the racks and not only find things for ourselves but as a team could grab pieces we thought would fit/suit others.

So what was the result? Well I picked up a winter jacket, 2 wool tartan skirts, 1 blouse, 1 silk slip, 1 silk dress, 1 wool turtle next and 2 rings. Pictures to come so you can see them all.
