Home again, home again jiggety jig ...

Well I have made it home safe and sound from a truly excellent trip to the Grampians where I got to hang out with The Stuffsmith himself (Kieth lo Bue) and broaden my skills base! More on that later - first I want to share some of the adventure of the trip over. Essentially I op shopped my way East! I wasn't in a particular hurry so I had the luxury of stopping whenever I felt like it. Sadly, many of the oppies were a bit disappointing although I met some really nice people in them! As I approached Nhill, something caught my eye ...







You can see why it attracted my attention right? It is colourful, has bunting and an intriguing bunch of stuff on the footpath. Well this is far more than a thrift store - this is an Emporium! It is in fact "Lola's Garage". Don't let the little shopfront fool you - this is an enormous space - it extends into a shed out the back and it is full, top to bottom, of quirky, cool and fun stuff. I am going to let the pictures do the talking!





















These gals are dedicated to the reuse of stuff and have assembled a fantastic array of things that you can wear, eat out of or just admire! I highly recommend a stop at Nhill to visit this place - take a wad of dollars though 'cos you are gonna want to walk out with a whole bunch of stuff! You will find Lola's Garage at 54 Victoria Street Nhill or virtually, over on Facebook.
