Antiques - Vintage - Retro

Next time you're stuck for something to do, how about going for a drive to Eumundi - on a non-market day. Yes, there are still things to see and do in this quaint little town - without battling the crowds on a Saturday morning. Gourmet eateries, art galleries, craft shops and historical pubs line the wide main street, so there's a little something for everyone.

Dick Caplick Park, situated right in the middle of town, is a great place for a picnic underneath the towering heritage-listed fig trees and is a great place for the kids to play.

Berkelouw Books has a fantastic range of both new and secondhand books, and the cafe next door makes the best coffee and muffins in town.

But my favourite shop is Continuum, where they sell a great range of genuine antiques, vintage and retro pieces at reasonable prices. Doug and Debra travel to France and England twice a year to source a wide range of beautiful and affordable pieces and their latest shipment has just arrived from Europe. Just check out some of what's on offer:

Chinese Shipwreck Salvage Plate c1728

Tales from Shakespeare c1915

English Boxed Set of Tea Knives c1930

French Hermes Scarf Advertisement c1955

Victorian Cake Stand c1860

French Art Deco Bracelet c1920

French Pale Blue Enamel Bucket c1920

Chinese Ginger Jar c1800

But it you can't make the trip to Eumundi it's OK, as they have just started up their on-line store. Visit them at to view their latest items. Debra also has a blog going here. They have quite an extensive range of products and new stock is added each week. Enjoy shopping!
