Irene ~ RE~VINTAGED said...

First of all I have to say I like to be able to shop by myself! Two boys severly inhibit the shopping experience as my favourite shopping destinations are Op shops(unless there is a good and child friendly toy section) and Antique Markets, so I am on the lookie out for 1. Vintage Barkcloth, 2. Vintage Household Linen and
3.Vintage Luggage to store it all in! There's more of course but they are the Top 3.
Happy hunting everyone!! :)
