Me and my little car have been driving all over the countryside this week.... I've been making the absolute most out of my last week of holidays.
Yesterday I headed off for another country road trip with my mum and my older sister. Our first stop was Colac (sorry no photos). It's a much quicker drive now that the Geelong Ring Road is finally open.
We were short on time as we had errands to run in town, so we didn't get to check out all of the oppies, before we headed for Beeac.
Beeac is tiny, but it has a fantastic secondhand shop jam packed full of bargains. Inside this huge shed was everything from tools, to books, to an old Singer Sewing Machine (that I had to leave behind as I just can't fit it into my house).
I found some absolute gems that I did bring home - a vintage sleeveboard for $15. I've been searching for one of these ever since I used one in Nikki's Pursemaking Class.
An old hat stand (yes - it does need some cleaning and some repair work, but it was only $2)
And this gorgeous vintage basket and Meakin Plate for $5
On the way home, we stopped off in Winchelsea
There are four great secondhand shops in Winchelsea. The one above is only open on weekends so we had to be content with staring in the windows instead.
They don't have the same type of bargains that can be found in Beeac....
But there were some fabulous vintage items and plenty of gorgeous old furniture.
Definitely worth the road trip!
