Trish Hunter Finds is Front Page News! Eeeeeee!

After a night of tears from 'car on deaths door' troubles, (He's at the repair man now :( fingers crossed he'll come out alive.) All was forgotten when an email arrived in my inbox this morning with a copy of the article coming out in 6 of Melbourne's newspapers and magazines, as I mentioned a few blogs ago.
Six! WOW!
And one of them is on the FRONT COVER! Wahhhh!
As I stared at myself on the computer it was a very, dare I say it... 'surreal' moment.

I started this blog as a hobby to share with you my opshop finds.
I had one follower and I was like woooo! then two, then 10, and I was thinking 'Wew 10 people read my blog, this is SO COOL!'
It later blossomed into an online shop that I love and am so proud of, and now I'm in these well known Melbourne newspapers, for doing something that I love, am passionate about, and hope to do until I'm an old crabby shop lady, with brightly dyed hair, who wears outfits that kids photograph with whatever phones are invented then, to send to their friends of the crazy Nanna walking down the street.
There's a lot more than 10 people reading these newspapers, so overwhelmed, excited, and proud are understated feelings I'm experiencing at the moment.

Ok enough blabber, here it is!

(Well the pictures anyway)

The article will be readable shortly at
And I'm not sure exactly what all the newspapers it'll be in are, but There's the one below, The Melbourne Weekly and the Melbourne Times. So hopefully there'll be one in your area!

*Update: I've discovered a few more covers from various locations around Victoria! here they are...*

I'd like to quickly say a massive thanks to those who initially inspired me to start my blog, to people who have read my ramble from the very beginning, and those who might have just found me, a big big HUGE thankyou! :) And I hope you continue to do so.
AND, when the time comes to visit the real life Trish Hunter Finds store, I hope you'll be the first to come and visit! :):)
I'm off to celebrate with a big huge dose of Creme egg love :)
