Waverley Antique Bazaar

Had a great day of thrifting over the weekend with fellow Blogger 
and new friend Pippa of 'Ouchflower'!

Turns out we both shopped at the our local retro/vintage store
aka The Man regularly, but had never met or crossed paths.
Then Michael (The Man) put us onto each others blogs, and I
became a regular visitor to OuchFlower.

And after bumping into eachother one day at The Man, 
Pippa and I decided to book a date and head out for some thrifting together!

Our chosen stop on our first trip was the 
Waverley Antique Bazaar
11a Aristoc Road, Glen Waverley
Open 7 days a week 10am - 5pm.

The Bazaar is located in a huge warehouse full of fantastic retro and 
vintage goods - for the most part priced really, really well.
The Bazaar opened in October 2011 and now houses over 130 stalls.

It was a blistering hot day but we put in a good 2 hours 
of seeking out treasures in the warehouse.

True to form, I purchased a few floral themed pieces.

So today I am linking in with Pippa from Ouchflower.
Please follow the link & pop over to see the wares she picked up on our thrifting expedition, and check out the rest of her lovely blog while you are there!

Here are a few pics of my purchases from the trip...

Luckily there were 2 of these gorgeous plates, so we bought one each. 
Floral mugs which I am now planning to hang on hooks from a 
shelf above the kettle.

Floral tin and wall hanging just coz.

Marquise shaped Tigers Eye ring. My favourite purchase of the day.
At least, I think it's Tigers Eye. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
(Are you feeling the garden stone? I couldn't get the ring to sit 
well on the bench so I needed a prop.)

And this awesome chemistry flask/come vase was a gift to me from Pippa! 
Nabbed some greenery from the garden for this shot. 
Hope I did it justice Pippa : )

Highly recommend a trip to the Waverley Antique Bazaar if you are in Melbourne. And I also recommend a date with Pippa. 
She bought me lunch - hoorah!!
Thanks for a great day Pippa. Next lunch is on me : )


  1. Oooh, that chemistry flask is awesome as are all your other treasures. We have rellies in Glen Waverley, will def check it out nest time we're over.

  2. The Jasmine sits very pretty in the flask, a very feminine touch! :)
