BEWARE - THIS IS ADDICTIVE
Yes - the luxury of spare time and where better to spend it than in antique/recycled/salvage haunts? If we should be downsizing (as this Nanna is) then the hunt for goodies that will fit into unaccustomed small spaces becomes hugely important and actually loads of fun. Thanks to the Junk Map website (http://www.thejunkmap.com.au/) these two spots in Sydney are where I managed to spend a ridiculous but stimulating amount of time - Mitchell Road Antique and Design Centre and Lunatiques, both in Alexandria, Sydney. WOW!!!!
In addition - great places to enjoy with like minded family, friends and visitors - the coffee at Lunantiques is a bonus BTW.
