Gleaners Inc. -Cruisy in Brunswick!

 We are still enjoying the somewhat cruisy January vibe in Brunswick.  
The street signs think it's winter already, but we have many more days of sun to come me thinks!
There has been quite a bit of making going on behind the scenes, some cute new Bubba clothing (as well as big girl's pretties) has arrived from Middlemost

and our lovely neighbour OK OK has a sale on the coolest bobby socks this side of the Merri creek!

New/Old finds

 I begrudgingly agreed to drive hubby to work in Richmond the other day. The boy child specifically requested we do not stop at Abbotsford Salvo's as often I can loose over an hour there...but he didn't say no to garage sales. Especially one where a very old dude was emptying out his ancient garage!
Now this cool metal display cabinet will be living at Gleaners Inc. Probably displaying some colourful Curlypops and Shagpile goodies. I also picked up a big set of ceder pigeonholes... thank goodness for the hatchback!
I also rescued some concrete friends for reading gnome (who himself was a nature strip rescue) from a skip in Preston.  Kirsten from Each to Own  asked  "how could anyone put a gnome in a skip? gnomes have feelings too...". 
Well now these guys and their froggy friend will greet you at the door of Gleaners Inc. happily relieved that they won't be ending their lives buried at the dump!

Morning Ritual....

...wiping the nose prints from the window.
This email arrived yesterday " Hi there, I spotted your lovely store today...if theres any smudge marks on your window..i'm sorry they're probably from my face pressing up again the glass to see all the pretty things inside."
I'll be there today with the Windex! xxxLiz
