I love collectables. Not 18th century antiques, because frankly, who has the money? But stuff like this. Stuff I call Retro Kitsch. Different, colourful, quirky stuff that makes you smile.
This is an American Diner cookbook. It has always been my dream to open a traditional American Diner right here in Sydney. When a local cinema was put up for sale a few years back I tried to convince some friends to invest in it with me. It had a cafe attached to it which I dreamed of turning into a diner. But alas, the price tag was too great at 4 million dollars. Now the whole thing has been turned into offices.
And then there’s Elvis. He will always be The King to me.
I can’t get enough of this bag.
It is perfect for a Sydney summer.
I also am really taken by this necklace.
I adore Frida Kahlo and the designer of this necklace Ruby Carmen who is based in Sydney is fantastic.
And finally, who doesn’t have a hankering for matadors? I confess to having a weakness for them.
Especially on teasets. Talk about spicing up your morning coffee.
I enjoy checking out some of the unique items for sale online. It is good to know there are still people out there creating fun items for people to collect. And it is a good form of retail therapy to have a look around.
Thanks for coming window shopping with me.
