Calling all Australian readers. Are you prepared to give up your favourite/secret vintage shops? Stylist, photographer, author and blogger Pia Bijkerk emailed me with an interesting request.
".... one of my stories will be featured in home beautiful soon and i am writing up a list of antique and vintage stores for them that i can recommend to readers - i have all my faves from sydney in there but i have NO contacts for Queensland (well, nor melbourne or the rest of oz!) - would you be able to recommend at least one or two from there so in the hope they will mention it in the article? i REALLY want to promote cool vintage places across the country. in the story i am saying something like this 'instead of heading to the mall on a saturday, go and check out your local antique or flea market etc bla bla'.... do you reckon if you posted about it people might write in from around oz with some shops to recommend?? or markets?"
So oz antique and vintage lovers spill the beans on the hottest and the most fabulous stores in your city. But we're on a deadline. Pia is completing the story brief this weekend so we need your tips by Monday Australian time. Never mind if you miss the deadline still leave all your fav spots in the comments below. Then we can let everyone in on the fun.
P.S. Pia sent us this lovely dog on a bed photo as a thank you in anticipation! Read more about this cute pic and Michelle Young's work on Pia's blog
