Home' Scoop : Scoop 52 Winter 2010 Contents everything in sight. All the pieces are less than
$40 -- a great feat, considering how gorgeous and
unusual they are. After convincing myself that I
didn t need any more a) animal-related jewellery,
b) bracelets or c) gigantic cocktail rings, I leave.
(I think I might go back this weekend).
A noughties-era Ae lkemi frock hanging in the
window of recycled clothing boutique 2 Timing
draws me over. Inside, I find a fantastic pair of 90s
Moschino jeans: lemon-coloured, complete with
flower-shaped buttons and a peace sign on the ass
for just $10. A staggering find, but unfortunately
they make my sizeable bottom look like a bowl of
custard. I wander away with navy polka-dotted
culottes and a great 80s woollen tuxedo jacket.
The stock is all locally sourced, so it s not just been
rescued from Vinnies and chucked back out after
being marked up 500 percent, something especially
apparent when my grand total comes to $15.
The day ends with a nose in at Concept 78, a
newish eco design store, where everything is not
only environmentally friendly, but super-cute.
They ve got a broad range of homewares, furniture
and accessories that would make perfect gifts.
I gift myself a new notebook with good, solid
paper stock -- nice, and strong. And firm. Perfect
for the next novel.
