A bit of this and a bit of that in Petticoat Lane..



Are there any shop/stores that you cannot resist popping into if you are in the area? For me it is Petticoat Lane in Subiaco, it's possible you have been in here with me before :) Temptation abounds between these four walls. The lamp below, no not the nubile young lady in front, the Art Deco lamp behind, isn't she gorgeous! I saw a quote recently that goes 'don't run from temptation, look it in the eye and defeat it'.. je préfère 'don't run from temptation, look it in the eye and buy it' :) I'll leave it in the hands of fate, if she is still there the next time I pop in, she is coming home with me 😊 Happy Saturday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. I think that is the owner above.. minimalism must be a curse to nostalgia shop owners!

  8. There looks to be some really nice things in there but I bet I would come out empty handed 😉 Take care and make it a good weekend. Diane

  9. Oh, Grace! How could you walk away from that lamp!?! That's the sort of thing that would truly haunt me for not picking it up.

  11. I would love to visit that place. But I really have given up buying in them so it is not as much fun as it used to be.

  13. I like the origianl quote, Grace, but I am the same. If still there next time, it goes with me! Baaaad. Or, just good, cause if you smile every time you see it in your place that just is good!

  14. There's an old barn turned store where they sell a lot of stuff that no one really needs. Been there a few times without buying anything.

  16. Love the shop, Grace. Let us know if you take a lamp home!

  17. Its indeed a beautiful art nouveau example but perhaps your house just gets too full. The built in safety valve of the mind is speaking here.
