On Saturday I set off, wearing one of my favourite vintage dresses, on my first kindred spirit adventure, with the gorgeous Steph from This Brown Wren. Together we navigated the streets of Brisbane to find some of the most delightful Saturday destinations and share some of our favourite spots to enjoy the weekend.
Our first stop just had to be to the Jan Powers Farmers Markets to visit the fabulous Kara, Tim and Frankie the caravan and fossick through the beautiful travelling wares. Needless to say we both came away with gorgeous treasures and can't wait for our next visit.
After wandering the rest of the markets, it was time for a chat and morning tea at the fabulously charming Cafe Bouquinste in New Farm.
From there our plan was to head towards Woolloongabba and on the way we took a couple of wonderfully colours detours. The first was to the enchanting Black & Spiro, where Steph and I could really have spent the entire afternoon. What an amazing treasure trove!
We then headed to Tangled Yarns to check out the most beautiful yarn in town and discuss exciting Autumn projects. It is such a feast for the senses!
An adventure for two vintage loving girls would not have been complete without a trip to Woolloongabba Antique Centre, for a little vintage inspiration before stopping by Spoon in Paddington for lunch and an endlessly inspiring conversation about creative and sustainable living.
And my purchases for the day.. A charming little motar and lovely bundt tin from Kara's Travelling Wares and some sweet thifted books full of lovely written notes (there was a quick stop into Vinnies on the way to Tangled Yarns).
With an idea of how much many passions Steph and I shared, I knew I was in for a wonderful day. It was when I was sharing snippets of my day with Ben, telling tales of my seven hours of magical fossicking, rummaging, photographing, chatting and giggling, that I began to truly appreciate the importance of this remarkable blogging community and it's ability to bring people together. And the icing on the cake is, I have met a wonderful kindred spirit and life long friend.
Here's to a delightful week!
