However, having such a long name was a bit of a bother and so in 2012 we changed to Vintage Treasure.
It is so much fun having a shop, I don't know why everyone doesn't have one! I love being surrounded by beautiful things and for a while sharing my life and space with interesting items from the past.
Having browsed secondhand shops, jumble sales, garage sales, charity shops, antique shops and fairs for the past half century or so, in 2005 I set up my own Vintage Treasure shop selling antiques and collectables with something for every pocket covering a wide range of items.
12 Ohio Street is a great location in the centre of town and yet quite a unique space for display, having a kitchen to display kitchenalia, and a dining room for china and cutlery works so well!
Prices are clear and items are clean, ironed, tidy and polished as I think shopping should be easy, and remembering some overcrowded and dusty shops I have manoeuvred through, I pledged mine was going to be a nice place to visit and interesting enough to visit every time you come to town and have a browse.
What a treat it is to be able to hold, examine and see the real colour and shade of an item before buying.
Cash, EFTPOS and credit cards (sorry, no Amex) are accepted.
I can also send an invoice for credit card payment on PayPal.
