shabby vintage junk extravaganza

I've just been to the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza which was organised by Tamarah from Shabby Vintage Junk. I found out about this after reading about Tamarah in the paper a few weeks ago. I was not disappointed - a careful selection of vintage sellers all jammed into the Ashburton Scout Hall - it was a real treasure trove. Lots of fab odds and ends, vintage plates and kitchenalia, jewellery, sewing patterns and fabric .... heaps of stuff. I bought a few choice bits and peices (which I will share over the weekend), but my extravagance was this vintage theatre letters sign that I bought from Tamarah herself (thanks!) ...



If you're a Melbourne local, the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza is on today and tomorrow at the Ashburton Scout Hall, High Street, Ashburton. Take cash, there is a $5 entry fee (but it goes to the Scouts), and it's open from  8am to 5pm each day.
