A musty air of mysterious uncertainty....

Last Sunday on a vintage shopping road trip, the Beatnik gang and I found ourselves outside a weathered and charming facade in Palmerston St. Carlton. A cautious step inside the entrance placed us upon some dodgy carpet with a dingy flight of stairs before us. We plunged ahead into the unknown, discovering a few personal objects along the way that made it evident the premises was in fact inhabited. At the top a cute gal cheerily invited us into her pad offering freshly baked cupcakes and then directed us to the balcony laden with vintage fashion delights! A glance above revealed a steeper stairway that gave us access to the rooftop which not only had more vintage fashion, but couches to lounge on, and a possie for tarot card readings. 'Miss Hullabaloo's Rooftop Market' is a monthly event of vintage shopping sweetness accompanied by live music that makes a nice little Sunday adventure.

The next destination of old school style retail therapy was the 'Waverley Antiques Bazaar'. A massive warehouse of retro treasures that temporarily caused us to loose all sense of time with all it's mesmerising contents. After a few purchases, a lovely chat with the directors and a little thought, I have decided this venue will be where I install my first little pop up shop 'Beatnik Flair Vintage'! I'm super excited and have been rummaging up all sorts of beautific stock. Stay tuned for deats and sneak peeks!
