lovely lark




How was your weekend? I had such a fabulous Sunday! Marty and I drove up to Daylesford to deliver my first lot of stock to the lovely Allison at Lark (I was pretty excited!). It was a real pleasure to meet Allison and Tess, (hi guys!) and have a look around the very gorgeous Lark shop.
Daylesford was super-busy with the Chillout Festival in action, and there was a real buzz in the air - it was a great weekend to visit, so much fun!
Allison kindly marked out a few places on the map where we could do some good vintage and thrift shopping, and one of those places was the Mill Markets. Oh I was in heaven! SO MUCH vintage and retro stuff all under one roof, it was packed full of treasure. I came home with one very beautiful West German ceramic vase - pictured above (the cream one). I have a love of West German ceramics from the 60s, and I bought the little red vase a while ago because I fell in love with it instantly. So you can imagine my delight when I found this 'big sister' version... and it was reduced to half it's original price... what a great find - Thanks Allison!

Oh Allison is so lovely, glad you had a great trip & found those divine vases. I'm completely uneducated on West German decor. I just think they look nice.
So you weren't flying kites like us?? Love Posie

Oh yes, the Mill Market - takes your breath away when you walk in the doors and feast your eyes on the enormity of all things vintage. There is a Mill Market around the corner from me. Highly, highly dangerous. If I wasn't so distracted with having to chase my 2.5 year old around that place, I'd do some serious damage on the credit card!
