Fashion revolves and if you wait long enough, you may find your possessions to be back in mode.
Luckily I have held on to this mesh bag given to me as a teenager. I wore it with my outfit on Saturday evening and have since noticed modern versions in stores everywhere.
I do like to have things that are different to the masses so was pleased to pick up this leather briefcase at the garage sale, mentioned in my previous post, for just $10. It's just worn enough to have character but is in otherwise excellent condition inside and out.
I'm always looking out for pretty vintage tableware for morning teas. I found 6 of these for $2 each.
Today, we wondered a little around Hobart as much as the husband's leg allowed us to. I found out that residents of Hobart are called "Hobartians". I did not know this interesting tidbit until today.
We spotted this restaurant on the wharf this morning and will be checking it out tonight since we both love seafood and my husband was attracted to its name "The Drunken Admiral Seafarer's Restaurant". I don't know why; draw your own conclusions.
Note: after dining, we can report that the restaurant is excellent with fresh seafood and a great salad bar to complement your main meal. The atmosphere is fun too with lots of interesting sea-faring decor to look at.
These are the lovely old buildings along Salamanca Place that house art galleries and cafes. I'm sure it's really happening here on Saturdays when the famous Salamanca Market is on. Perhaps I'll be lucky enough to visit on another trip.
