A whole new blog!

I have some happy and sad news!

This blog that I've had since 2008 is soon going to be no longer :(
It will still be online for you to read back through, but my posts will no longer be posted here.

However!! NEVER FEAR! A whole new one is being born!

It's going to be amaaazing!
It's going to be all rolled into my new website, a fresh start, and I've already made 5 posts in it in preparation for it's launch!
However it's not online yet, so you'll have to stay tuned!

During the past year I've been such a terrible blogger, but with this new blog that's coming, I feel I have so much more to offer, as fresh starts always seem to do that, It gives you that motivation back again.
Kind of like when you buy an empty notebook, you feel the need to start something amazing. To write a novel, or draw a work of art.

That is where the next video post will be located, and that is where a lot of fabulous posts on all things vintage can be found.
Eee I can't wait to show it off already.

But it hopefully won't be too far away.

I just wanted to pre-warn you. :)

I'll be sure to let you know when it's all happening as I'm already busting at the seams!

Ok I'll stop rambling.

Until my next post..... in a new location.....

Oh wait, no I will post another here to tell you where the new location will be! As because it's not even online yet I don't even know! hahaha.

Enjoy this pretty & sunny day.

My first Video Blog! A tutorial on how to value your retro items!

Hello hello!

As promised here is my very first Video Blog! HOORAY!

I hope to make these reasonably regular, as spreading the word about vintage is important, and the more that you know, the better things you can find!

And how good is learning? I thrive on it, so keeping all these little secrets to myself is selfish, why not pass them onto you too!

Hopefully throughout this cringy first attempt, you'll learn something, even something really little and then I'll be one happy Lady!





The next issue? post? Uh installment? that I'm working on is all about how to tell if something is genuine or fake, original or reproduction! Fun!

Some very talented peeps!

I've had the greatest week!! Friday was my 26th Birthday! I had an amazing day with my wonderful and beautiful friends.

I received a really lovely present from my new friends Kylie and Lluis that I just had to share with you all.

Lluis is a super talented artist! And he gave me one of his very own creations!
It's a little story titled 'The grasshopper & the mole'
All the drawings were drawn by his genius hands and gosh it really made me feel special to receive one hot off the press!

I'd like to share it and his wonderful blog & website with you!

Here's some photos of my super cute hand made picture book!







Lluis and his super fabulous girlfriend Kylie who blogs at The Curio Cabinet have markets selling their art, and some crazy amazing vintage goodies...

Here's their stall today at Thread Den in North Melbourne!



THE COAT THE COAT!!! I think I need it.

And here's some other bits and pieces of Lluis' works that I was quite impressed by...



Naturally, as there is a caravan in it!





Pinup space-girl? Heck yes!!

The travelling vintage shop warming!

Last night I celebrated amongst family and friends the launch of my caravan shop Trish Hunter Finds!

It went a little something like this...


















































I barely got a chance to take any photos once people started to arrive as I was way too excited showing off my new adventure! So if anyone has photos of the night I'd love to get copies! Most of these were taken prior to the night while the rain had temporarily held off, and the sun was almost shining! Hehe.

Also keep your eye out for me in the Melbourne weekly super soon! Yeeee

Hope to see you at Camberwell Market super soon!!

SHOP LAUNCH!! - Sunday the 15th of May - Two weeks away!

The day has finally arrived!
After a year long trial to get my shop up and running, we've finally made it! And to celebrate, I'd like to invite you all to my shop launch!
I can't believe I can actually finally do this! I've been looking forward to this day for so very long.
Sunday the 15th of May will be my very first day open and I oh so hope you can join me!
It'll all kick off in the wee hours of the morning, but I'll be open until 12:30pm! So hopefully you'll be able to stop by at some stage during the day.
Oh and don't forget to say hello and introduce yourself, as it'd be a great opportunity to meet some of the people who've kept me motivated with such lovely comments during the building of my shop!

The official invitation is here - Trish Hunter Finds shop launch!

Hope you can make it!

Trish



PS: Here's a few more sneaky peaks if you haven't been watching Facebook :)























They were just the first boxes I grabbed when I was setting up for a quick photo shoot! So be sure to stop by to see what will be for sale when the shops really open! Aargh I can't wait.

2 weeks to go today!
