Hi Guys

Due to circumstances out of our control this weekend only we have to close the warehouse as a one off event.
As many of you will have experienced the blue stone pathway is almost finished but due to the rain it is unsafe to access.
The council has blocked the laneway off but have assured us that all is back to normal next weekend.

Big sorry but on the bright side we have a beautiful new bluestone pathway awaiting us and you don't need to wear wellington boots anymore to visit us !!

Our shop Nook Vintage at 258 Johnston St is packed to the rafters to compensate and there are lots of new treasures inside.
We are open all weekend and look forward to seeing you.
Please call us for any enquiries on 0417187196.
