In the beginning...

I think my laptop is almost on its last legs so today I started sorting through all the important photos in order to transfer them onto another hard drive.  Anyway so while I was doing that I found all these old photos that reminded of how this whole little vintage store got started.
It all began with a summer road trip, the old family wagon, hitting ever op shop up and down the South island, and of course having my best friend and my boyfriend in tow...

Oh it all seems like another life time ago!  Another summer has passed, Nic has shaved off his moustache, Anna went back to Germany and created the most beautiful book of photos from her time in New Zealand, and I went on to start selling vintage at the markets and then opening an online boutique .  Sometimes it is so nice to look back and see where you were and what you have achieved since.  Man what I wouldn't give for it to be summer again though... it's so cold here right now!


  1. Love these photos - and those mickey mouse frames are hilarious! That one of your friend taking photos inspires me to go south again - so picturesque! :-)

  2. Lovely pictures!
    And you know what, I was just thinking that you haven't been updating for a while, but now I realized you have updated a lot, but not appeared in my blog reader until now (again)! Damn blogspot!
