145.. every cup an adventure!



Fremantle may have it's cappuccino strip but even more tantalizing to a browser, sometimes buyer, of all things old Guildford, one of Perth's oldest suburbs has it's 'antiques strip'! Luckily there are many cafes where you can celebrate your 'had to have' new/old junk treasure :) French inspired, shabby chic Maddison Cottage is a delight where every cup literally is an adventure.. such a fab collection of old English crockery.. drinking your tea/coffee out of an Albert or Doulton is très agréable! Have a fab weekend, take care and stay safe..

  1. Lovely metalwork. But "adventure in a cup"? Uhm, maybe not. :-)

  4. Antique stores often attract more of the same which makes for a great area!

  5. One of my favorite girly things to do!!! I'm not big on shopping or going to the beauty shop with friends...but if someone wants to browse an antique shop or a thrift shop...I'm there!!!

  12. I love places like this! I go to Laguna Beach for a few days most summers (will be going the second week of August) and there is a little cafe I go to that is simply full of antiques and collectables. It's such a joy to go there and have breakfast on the patio among the trees and statues and nicknacks.

  15. Earlier this year where an antique shop had cups and tables set for tea. At first, I thought it was a display. Then I saw the counter with coffee and cakes. But the woman who ran the shop was sitting at a piano, playing with her back to the window. No-one would have wanted to disturb the music - and the shop was empty.
