Anyone up for a Picnic?

It’s still summer the weather is good and it’s a perfect time for a picnic retro style.
I can still remember our childhood picnics, mum would make a chicken, and salads and cold icy drinks, which we put in the freezer the night before, we would all pack it into our special picnic basket and our colourful esky and off we would go on our long trip to Rye. ( Well it felt like it was a long way from Frankston we were young). My sister would always be car sick and we would have to stop a lot. We went to our special place we called ‘The Spot” which was the back beach in Rye. We had lots of fun sliding down the sand dunes.
Picnics are still fun, my sister and I still meet for picnics, the kids take their bikes or skateboards, cricket bat and ball. Autumn is coming - a perfect time for a retro picnic!

The Vintage shed has some great, retro picnic things, vintage bicycles and games, relive the past, come and take a look, you might find something fantastic for your next picnic.

                                            Look at this cute little picnic basket

                                                And this flower power Esky

                  Or this cute Picnic Pal Look at the squirrel this is a one of a kind.

                                     Chenille Bedspreads make great Picnic Rugs.

                         These gorgeous little Children's picnic chairs are perfect

                                                         And don't forget the salads book.

Aeroplanes aerobactics and other things....

The Tyabb Air Show will be on Sunday March 4th, but there is good news and bad news!
Firstly the bad news (always best to know that first) the road will be closed from Frankston Flinders Road and also Jones/Boes Road, but don't for the good News!
You can access The Vintage Shed by going to the Jones Road entrance and asking to come to us and they will let you in. The Bonus is while you are browsing it will be a great place to catch a glimpse of some of the aerobatics from the Show. Hope to see you there.

I rode my bicycle past your window last night

I rode my bicycle past your window last night
I roller skated to your door at daylight
It almost seems like your avoiding me
I'm okay alone but you've got something i need
Words from Song 'Brand New Key' by Melanie Safka 1971

These Vintage Bike and Skates are just a small part of the collection of vintage sporting items that are in stock.

We even have a vintage motorbike and ice skates!

Wow what a weekend, we had people come in from everywhere, lots of local Peninsula people, Fitzroy, Collingwood, Ringwood and even a lady from Benalla. They were all so excited about visiting the Vintage Shed and bought some great bargains. But don't worry there are lots more,  the stall holders have been restocking today. Here are some pics:
