Addendum – Sr Maria Corda

I forgot to mention Sr Maria Corda – she told Ruth she is 73 years old, hardly seems possible but there it is and she is stepping up to support Sr Mary Paule’s projects. Sr M C was in charge of the Aftercare when we went to Ikwezi and had specialised in art education for the handicapped. She had terrible trouble with her back and several sessions of surgery and finally went to Marian Hill to work where she would have less stress. She was greatly missed when she left but ably replaced by Sr Michaele Koch who was on home leave at this time, she of the gorgeous red hair which she used to allow the children to play with at length!! Sr MC and Ruth connected again wonderfully and it seems that might turn into another longer term connection between us and Glen Avent/Ikwezi Lokusa. Thank you Ruth for being there again!

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.
