Many of you may already know the new kid on the block at The Woolloongabba Antique Centre. She is of course the lovely Sandy from Paint me White We are all very excited to have Sandy here. Although Sandy is new to the WAC she has been painting wonderful vintage pieces for years. I can still remember our first curb side chat many years ago now...I think it was an Art Deco sideboard that was heading home with Sandy to get the Paint me White look that day. We would like to welcome her to our little WAC neighbourhood...
There are "lots of friendly people in our neighbourhood" and I thought it was a good chance to show you just some of the gang's shops.
This is the super chic Sarah-Jane, co owner of the WAC. This is SJ's stall...otherwise known as "Almost Famous". She has lots of fab retro gear and stacks of amazing vintage clothing.
This is Heather's Shop. You may remember Heather has just opened The Ipswich Antique Centre. To see more of her new centre just click here .
