I had a wonderful weekend away with hubby. We went ALL THE WAY up to Mount Tamborine (a whopping 20 minutes away from where we live). We had a great time eating at cafes and sleeping in!
One of the highlights was definitely the Antiques and Oddities ‘shack’ we thought we might mosey on into.
This is Keith being like an “American Picker” except that we couldn’t actually buy anything.
There were two reasons we couldn’t buy anything that day: the first being that we’re renting while we build so I have NO SPACE for new stuff. And secondly, we’re building, so we have no money to spend anyway. Otherwise, I would have come home with a boat load of extremely cool and quirky bits.
This little baby, The Grave Digger, would have been my first offer, but I don’t think she was for sale. She comes fitted with your own personal coffin. Super!
Wandering into the United States of MERCA
Please excuse my original attire from the set of GAME OF THRONES — I feel a little overdressed. (Yes, I would wear this in public).
OLD BOOKS. Nuff said.
This stuff was so gorgeous. I could have easily spent hundreds. I’m not sure if any of it was functional, but WOW!
Oh, I say, young chap, would you like some skulls with your medical instruments? Don’t mind if I do!
Creepy doll alert! Yes, there were a few. I promise not to buy one. Pediophobia is a real thing, people.
These would be gorgeous all cleaned up.
This fridge is around a tonne, but it’s goin’ straight to the pool room.
There’s a huge possibility that we’ll head back there when the time comes to decorate our new house. Not sure everyone will love the décor, but hey, not many people would LOVE Antiques and Oddities like Keith and I did. We weren’t too sure about the stuffed doberman or the carved satanic goat’s heads, but each to their own.
It was a highlight of our visit and I recommend you take a peek inside, even for interest’s sake.
