a trip down memory lane
we would catch the bus and get off at the station and walk to Grace Bros. Grace Bros has gone now and in its place stands the huge and vile shopping center called westfield
So many memories came flooding back ~ the little op shop where my mum, nana and I would go...even back then I loved vintage cloths * the red cross tea rooms where we would go for lunch : a plate of mixed sandwiches, a date scone and cup of tea. This was a little tea room manned by volunteer red cross ladies. They sold the tiny little calendars that I loved when I was little. ~ thomas' auction rooms where my pa would take me on Fridays if I were staying with them. I bought my first piece of vintage furniture there ~ a victorian plant stand * which I still have !! I loved the boxes of sundries too. ~ the lovely old bridge over Parramatta river with the chinese restaurant near it ~ Davy jones' ( What my nan called David Jones dept. store )
oh the wonderful memories came flooding back for me.... a trip down memory lane
Thankfully we didnt have too much trouble finding the dresses. No tears and no tantrums , thank Heaven !!
we had lunch and had to listen to the most horrendous music. Why is it that shops these days seem to think that we need noise while we are out shopping ? oh for peace and quiet.
