know your product

is the name of a shop in High St,Westgarth that I went to yesterday. It’s like a way less cluttered, styled-up Chapel Street Bazaar, and the lovely owners display their wares according to colour! Ohhh, it’s so pretty, I’m amazed to have only emerged with three things – some pale yellow plasticware from Bessemer (a jug and fruit bowl), and a novelty tray advertising “Space Furniture by Supersonic” (from Goodcheer Novelties of Melbourne).

Apparently these folks only have the building until September, so saunter in and check them out. Something for every retrophile – phones, radios, clocks, kitchenalia, pictures, barware, lighting…Utter fabulousness from the 60s and 70s!

  2. hi cat n harv – i have your new address in my “hot spots, 3070” page, which gets lots of hits – hopefully some of that traffic will swing by your fabby emporium. i’ll certainly be back soon!
