Writing from a peaceful place again… how lucky are we.  At Diana and Geoff’s lovely home in Brisbane we lounge on the deck in suburbia and gaze out at their tropical garden with water feature and palms and suck in the peace and the comfort.  Living in a caravan is fine and we are ready to go on for a good while longer but the opportunity to stretch and use shower and loo a few steps from the bedroom and have exclusive use of same is luxury indeed.

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.
