Never Too Old

One of the best bits about my job is that I get to explore country South Australia.

A recent workshop had me down on the Limestone Coast where we spent a lovely few nights in Penola - probably my favourite town in that part of the world.

Before we set off home, my boss and I ducked into this gem of a shop that we'd spotted from across the road the night before. It was jam packed full of unique finds so we risked being late for our next meeting to spend a wee while exploring its treasures.

Never Too Old is just gorgeous, one of those rare finds that takes you back to your childhood in a matter of seconds. We walked out with far too many purchases for our own good (I stuck to small treats like costume jewellery while my boss ticked off a few larger Christmas presents for her 18 month old) but we'll be back for sure.

Do you agree, the best antique/treasure hunting is in the country?

I agree! One of the reasons I'm so happy to be going back to working around the country is precisely to ravage their vintage shops for undiscovered treasures. Here's hoping the NT reveals another skeleton to cart back with me!

Clearing sales are great fun to check out too - you never know what antique wonder has been stored in a shearing shed for the last 50 years!
