Woke up this morning to an unfortunate overcast, windy and overall chilly day. Not really the best kind of day for a country drive. Oh well, it's more about seeing mum, and hey we'll just have more coffee and cake...yum! Of I set for Bowral, arriving nicely near our planned time, called mum to find out where she had parked. Yeah well, about that, mum had run into a spot of traffic. Not to worry, I'll make myself comfortable in a coffee shop. I walked around a bit and nothing really had enough room inside, until I walked into Wild Food, Heath Food Market. Wow yummy yum yum!! They have a breakfast degustation, great for when you can't decide on what to eat and you haven't eaten for say um, a week. Anyway, long story short, mum gets stuck in traffic, i had way too much coffee waiting, we had more food, we starting our walk and I ran into a friend from a long time back.
Walking down the street, on recommendation from my friend, we walked into Three Wise Monkeys. The Three Wise Monkeys is a refreshing change the shops we had passed. It is like this shop is more at home in King Street in Newtown, with its beautiful, bright and vibrant jewellery, homewares and toys from countries far and wide. Wow! The first thing that struck me was this great display of colourful barbushka dolls.
After adoring the many bright wares in Three Wise Monkeys, we wandered further down the road to Dirty Jane's Emporium. Ahh what a gem! I am as excited as Wallace gets with his love of cheese... cheese Grommet cheese. Anyway, rather than make obscure metaphors here are some photos of wares that people are selling there.
I found these little felt egg cosies in one of the stores, really excited and ready to purchase. Yeah, its the only item in the whole shop that was not for sale.
Here's a cute little children's folding table set. Probably not capable of holding a child given that the tag say's "Great as a prop".
The stall down the end of the emporium struck mum's attention first, we both were perplexed with the white basket of dolls that have the shape of large paint brushes. With closer looks, the stall was full of amazing curiosities like a pottery doctor shapped bag used to warm a bed.
We said our goodbyes and pledged to catch up more often, maybe next time in Berrima. And drove away as the sun came through the clouds.
