When most people come home from a shopping trip at Camberwell Market, I'm sure they don't come home with anything like I did.
Perhaps they found a cute handbag, A pretty vintage frock, or maybe that one piece of their collection they'd been missing.
Or, maybe they found...
A giant lion costume!
(I'm actually pose roaring underneath!! How stupid.)
How could I not buy this? It was amazing!
I do love oversized things. They just appeal to me for some reason.
Perhaps its because I've got no room to put them. Gr.
A few months ago, I desperately wanted a giant fibreglass shark mouth (Like luna park but smaller and sharkier) from the top of a fish and chip shop in Perth. I'm so lucky the courier was too expensive or I sooo would have bid!
I had dreams of turning it into a table to put in my shop, or maybe just putting it on the roof of my one day to be shop to get some attention.
Ah well, it wasn't meant to be.
Anyway, when this was hanging over a rail, I was amazed it hadn't been bought!
So off I walked with a giant Lion.
Its times like this I'm lucky I don't have a husband or family to come home to. Or this would definitely have been one of those shaking head moments ahha.
Anyway, despite the pouring rain, and gale-force winds it was fantastic day at Camberwell!! (I really should have just worn the lion costume. I would have been much warmer.)
Here's my stall before it was blown away.
By the end of the day I'd given up tidying it up and just left it like a cyclone had passed through.
I looked at myself in the mirror of the car after I'd packed up and my gosh I wish someone had told me I looked like a cyclone had hit ME!
My makeup was panda, my fringe looked crimped? And I don't even have curly hair!? I was a mess hahaha. It was rather comical.
Ok in other news, I haven't put much in my shop of late as I've been super busy, but I've got SO SO SO many things to come!
Like, my list has 36 items to photograph, and that includes the word 'hats, and furs' which in itself there's heaps of each! So urhghh where to start!
Here's just a preview of some of the things!
Possibly the most amazing fully beaded top in the whole wide world. Brand new with tags, so intricate and heavy! Full night scene that goes from front to back and has arm tassels! Pwoah!
Really Retro lamp! Crazy amazing shade!
Pixie O Harris story book with lovely colour plates
Sega Master System 2 with games!
And some more 80's hand consoles including DONKEY KONG!
Sticking to the 80's theme is this amazing Star Wars wallpaper and trading card gum packs.
Smurf for fun Tote bag.
Burglar Bill musical decanter
And a Gunda Ashtray.
My gosh and there's so so much more! That was just what I could quickly find! The list is huge!
Also, I got a part time job at a brand new Retro/Collectables shop opening up this month in Montmorency!! (Greensborough/Eltham area) I hope you'll all come out, stop by and pick up some fabulous treasures!! It's right opposite the train station so its easy to find!
I'll give you more info soon! :)
