A Fresh Learning Curve

Wallangarra was a fresh learning curve but not a painful one. Especially when one considers that the issue was the rain. It neverrains in September! Well it hardly stopped from Warwick… We got bogged three times from the entrance to our site and had to be towed. But once at the site we erected the new small gazebos, not without some blueing of the air from Alan, one of them didn’t work well. We decided to set the stock out in the morning. I cooked the salmon steaks and broccoli and green beans while Alan walked to the Bottle-O to get rations. We are not drinking but this day needed a dop to end it!
Saturday dawned reasonably fair and we decided to set up with optimism. The old cars rolled in some were more gorgeous than others but the customers didn’t. By 2 o’clock it was obvious that the exercise needed to be drawn to a close wo we packed up and drove home in driving rain up to Warwick.

About retrocentricaussie

We are a pair of ageing 'gypsies' who find junk and sell antiques, especially objects from the art nouveau/art deco years and old and well-loved tools. We also occasionally buy antiques as well!! We haunt clearance sales, garage sales, charity shops and sometimes dumps. Lately we have even been to a 'proper' auction. The thrill is in the chase for good stuff at prices we can afford and still sell the items on at a profit sufficient to support us. We recycle what other people don't want anymore, we find new homes for nice things. We sell at markets and antique fairs, swap meets and wherever else we can find. Our clientele are mostly ordinary people who want something they can afford that will enhance their quality of life. We are especially pleased when generation Y buy from us. It suggests that appreciation of quality and good design is still part of our modern aesthetic.
