It’s hard when you go to work before shops open and leave when they are closed. It’s hard to find the time to go and hunt down that bargain! I first found out about Stuff and Co when I was on the Sorrel Antique Centre website. As soon as I saw the burb about it, I knew it was going to become a favourite shop!
As it turns out I have driven past hundreds of times and not even noticed it! No doubt my mind was thinking about what to teach in Math tomorrow or what I was going to have for dinner… Last weekend I finally had the chance to head to New Town and unleash the wallet on Stuff and Co. But alas, it was closed :( Open Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 4pm. All I could do was press my face to the window and squint my hardest to see every little trinket and vintage delight in sight! I even got the long lens on my camera to zoom into the back room. This may or may not have looked a little suspect!
Everyday last week I tried and epically failed to leave work at 3.30 so I could make it to the shop before close. MEH! It wasn’t until Saturday when I was blissfully unaware that we were driving along New Town Road and my lover pointed to a mannequin on the footpath outside a shop! OH MY GOD TURN AROUND were my exact words.
My stalking was over. I left the store with an industrial Elcon fan circa 1950’s.
