Berrima : Part One

For an incredibly sad reason, hubby and myself left the children with visiting grandparents, and had a couple of child free days last week.  One of which we spent having a quiet time in Berrima, about 2 hours south of Sydney.
I first visited Berrima 13 years ago when pregnant with my son. 
I remember spending hours mooching through this antique emporium.
Over the years we've pulled into Berrima for breakfasts and morning teas, whilst travelling south, but I have never had the opportunity to browse at my leisure, until last week.
The ladies were so helpful and lovely.  I came upon them sitting in a row, having a chat about Masterchef, supping their hot soup for lunch.
The whole building is bursting at the seams with old wares.  It quite takes my breath away.
I was on a mission to find a glass cake stand - more of that in another post.  The lovely ladies gave me a stool to sort through the shelves of glassware.  I found my cake stand and a few other goodies too.
I had such fun taking photos, but there are so many I will have to spread them over a few posts, to give you a true flavour of the store.
Watch this space.

I love Berrima! Many of my husband's family live around the area, and every time we visit I spend most of my time mooching around the place. I haven't been for quite a while, and Peppergreen is on my list to visit next time we're down that way. Thanks for popping in to my blog, I'm looking forward to reading back through all of your posts. K xx

I wish we could do that more often - spend time alone as a couple, without kids! (well, just one, in my case) Um I feel really stupid not understanding why you call it a SAD reason to do that, though?...
