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.
