I'm so excited!

I hinted earlier in the week that I was looking at a new retail outlet for Peg & Kate coming up to Christmas. Well I can finally tell you.

Peg & Kate are now proudly on display at the Woolloongabba Antique Centre, located;
Woolloongabba Antique Centre
22 Wellington Road,
(Cnr Wellington Rd & Nile St)
Woolloongabba Q 4102


I spent today putting together the display, and I feel really good about it. Here are a few images.


I found the Woolloongabba Antique Centre through a good friend who kindly took me on a shopping trip and I fell in love with it. To be honest, I've been waiting for Brisbane to have an Antique Centre like this for ever. And now we have one, and WOW!

Here are a few shots I took today, to give you a little taste of the wonderful antiques for sale.

Something I love about the Woolloongabba Antique Centre is it caters for all tastes and budgets. There is Vintage Clothing, Antique Furniture, Retro Homewares, Bric a Brac, Jewellery and so much more. Oh my goodness it is huge! You just have to check it out for yourself.



A few other things to note, there is a fabulous little cafe on site. You must try the Chicken and Pumpkin Toastedo. Yum! And the girls make a mean coffee.

The staff are helpful and friendly, and the music is groovy. Just my idea of a good day out with friends, your partner or just for a lone browse. You need to give yourself at least an hour to see everything, and don't be surprised if you need to do a couple of laps. There's just soooo much to see.






And here is the great thing, parking is free and there is plenty of it. And it is on site, so it is hassle free, and you wont have to lug your purchases far to get them to the car. Hiding them from your significant other, may be difficult though.


Definitely make some time to check out the Woolloongabba Antique Centre, I promise it will not disappoint. I heard somewhere that Woolloongabba is the new black, well I will certainly be taking all of my friends for lunch and a browse and soon.

See you there.

Woohoo! The display looks awesome (nicely accentuated by the school table too!). So excited for you - I know you products will go really well. Am just annoyed that the centre wasn't open when we were still up in Bris... sigh... ah well, just another reason to come visit!

Wow I just love your display! Your products look fantastic and I particularly love the colourful spotted fabric you have used.
I also think your Nintendo DS pouches are genius! They are so much cooler and unique than the mass produced ones! Congrats!
