‘Junk & Disorderly’ is a second-hand shoppers’ haven: inundated with everything vintage including timeless books, kitsch ornaments, old-school pails, rocking horses, dainty tables, mannequins, crockery, 1970’s sofas and the kitchen sink. Serious. I absolutely adore this oversized jumble-sale – that favours the consumer. I have purchased, borrowed and browsed this awe-inspiring warehouse for days without boredom. Parking is a dream; located in the heart of Northcote – go and find some treasure now or miss out.
Another sterling and stupendous ‘Yelp Elite Event’ held at Jetset Bohemian, in the hip spot of Grey Lynn.
A team of awe-inspired yelpers each donated a pair of second-hand sneakers or $10 for #GivingShoesDay #GivingTuesday to send some relief to the victims of the Philippines Typhoon #TyphoonHaiyan
Bird on a Wire was present with their offerings of ‘Korean BBQ Chicken Roll’ and the classic ‘Bird On A Wire Chicken Roll’. What can I say: Scrumptious!!!! Thanks Sophie!
Also Rochfort Rees wine, that I will admit I had not heard of, until now! Sampling the super premium Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris was a delight! The virtual winery whose philosophy “is to make wine that is simple in its complexity.”
Simple yet perfect.
Jetset Bohemian opened late for the yelpers’ pleasure: beautiful vintage pieces, scarfs, hats, you name it! I adored their newsprint-like carrybags, very cool.
What a night of yelping!
There is something about the ‘aesthetics’ of vintage things – whether it is (motor) scooters, tea trolleys, vinyl, burlesque-influenced wigs, tailored clothing, or quirky mirrors.
Filming today (in one of my favourite locations) was inspiringly eclectic, with majestic backdrops – from bookshelves crammed with romantic novels to kitsch furniture, dainty crockery, and dismembered mannequins.
People like Bettie Page, Marilyn Monroe and Dita Von Teese – all radiate femininity and glamour.
Buying ‘vintage’ from all over the world – is definitely dreamy.
Great cars too.
