Wisteria Lane..



Aimee and I did make the 'expedition' over to Myaree on the south side of the river yesterday to visit the Shabby Chic Vintage Market held at Wisteria Lane and the barn. I think I've mentioned before that a trip over to the south side of the river is a little like visiting another country and Myaree, being a predominately light industrial area we weren't sure what to expect. However once found, walking through those big shed doors was like walking through a portal into another time.


Music from the 1930/40's added to the ambience. I'm not sure what it is about the pre, during and just after the WW11 period that I find so fascinating, I can't explain it but the glorious collection of vintage 'stuff' made my heart sing! They say you either have a 'hat face' or you don't. Aimee definitely does, she has a significant collection of vintage hats. When it came to choosing between these two she chose.. can you guess :)


The rumours re the deliciousness of the  home-made scones was true, I think I may have gotten a little carried away with the cream :) Hope you are having a fab weekend, happy Sunday, take care and stay safe...

  1. An eclectic looking place, and Aimee looks good in either hat!

    Boy, does that scone look tasty!

  2. My guess is that Aimee choose the hat on the left, but she should have gone for both of them. They look very stylish. That is sure a busy reflection in that mirror. Looks like the two of you had a great time.

  3. Aimee looks great. Period! Love this kind of place. I wondered, though, if you came across any "Desperate Housewives" on Wisteria Lane?

  4. That is a big set-up for just one weekend, Grace! I think she took the one on the left but she likes color so may have gone for the one on the right. What did you buy?

  5. That's the place for lots of variety and a lot of looking and choosing. I have to agree with Pat about the hat, the brown one she got but maybe the blue one for love of color. :)
    The scone looks very yummy, that's the one thing I would make sure I got.

  11. This is an eldorado where you can stroll around for hours. Did she pick the green one?

  12. What a most wonderful shop.... it would be lovely to walk there around and (only) watch everything nice.
    You are right, some people has the hat-face, and some not... I don't have, shade.

  15. Nice vintage market Grace, I can spot a few things I would love.
    Aimee looks nice in either hat. I love hats too, although where would I use one?

  17. I'd love that place, too. It sounds right up my alley, although these days I should be divesting myself of stuff rather than collecting. But looking and eating scones would be fun.

  18. What a great place to look around, it looks like fun. We have lots of Wisteria out at the moment but guess it is the wrong time of the year for you :-) Have a good week Diane

  19. That looks like an amazing amount of fun. Lots of things to look at and be tempted by. I think Aimee went for the turquoise hat.

  20. I can imagine it being magical with the music, Grace!
    In Eureka they time-travel to WWII and it surely has some charme (weird enough).
    Aimee is a beautiful hat-person :-)

  23. I keep losing my message!! I think that you framed Aimee's portraits so very well. The scones look both irresistible and decadent!

    Scone and cream, Yum!

    All the best Jan

  25. I'm not much into "antiques" but I really like shops like that one.
    Aimee looks great in both of them, but I'll pick the red one.
