Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Waverly Antique Bazaar

Cath, one of my blogger buddies, wrote a post on her blog about the newly opened Waverly Antique Bazaar.. I asked if she would like to meet up with me there one day, and we decided today was the day. I invited Lyndel to join us, and the three of us (all dedicated opshoppers) had a great time wandering around. The prices are dearer than opshops, but much cheaper than what you would normally expect to find in antique shops. It is really more of a collectables bazaar, and definitely worth a visit.
Here are some of the photos I took.
Lyndel looking through dress patterns.
Vintage quilt, about $85.
Looking down to one end of the warehouse.
Unusual bras!!!
Junk or treasure?
Unique handcarved chair.
Mini jukebox.
Another view of the warehouse.
Cath rummaging through bricabrac.
I couldn't resist these cute chooky salt and pepper sets, especially as each pair cost less than $8!
I also bought some linens and two books - a paperback for 50c, and a book on vintage motorcycle ($10) for Ken (had to justify my own spending - lol!)
If you want to see the linens, I've posted them on my other blog.
