Antique Shop in Walcha

Hi everyone, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

I've just come back from visiting my Dad in Glen Innes and my brother in Armidale for our Christmas get togethers, they're such lovely country towns.

As usual for the last nine years we stopped at Walcha NSW for our morning cuppas on our way home, needing to stretch my legs I decided to go for a little wonder around the town and stumbled upon this fantastic antique shop, OH MY GOSH it was filled with all sorts of wonderful treasures, why haven't I seen it before?




This is what I had time to grab, trust me... I could've filled up the car!! A rusty money tin - the lovely owner told me that unfortunately you won't be able to get the rust out, 'I love the rust, rustier the better' I said LOL, she threw in the rusty tin and a few other pieces! The circus tin grabbed my attention, I have no idea what I'm going to do with it yet. The little lamp is so cute isn't it, that I'm going to decorated with a few flowers I think, same with the other boxes and billy can.




This picture is only showing a third of the shop, you need at least three decent hours I reckon to hunt around properly! Oh the joy!!



Hence we will be stopping here longer from now on, much to my hubby and kids dislike. I will probably be known as the crazy lady who loves all the rusty stuff, maybe I should show them pictures on my next visit he he.

I shall be back tomorrow to show you some creations I have made, rusty ones!!

Cheers
Jane xx

  1. Hey Jane, I know this shop! I live just down the road at Uralla.....go to Armidale weekly for shopping and taught my first year in Glen Innes! What a small world.
    I love the antique junque shop too; several of my dollars have decided to stay there when I visited!
    As you say, you do need a lot of time to have a proper look....if only to be careful not to knock anything over, it's so jam packed!
