Corinthian, according to G.
A fella who knows his columns!
We had a very brief expedition to Oamaru on Saturday; we spent the afternoon nosing around a couple of opshops and most importantly, Retro Funk!
Retro Funk is the most splendid retro shop, right in the heart of the Victorian Precinct!
They were actually closed, but very kindly opened up for us...
I loved that plastic floral thingy to the right!
I was deadset on this retro-tastic Sydney Harbour tray for the cocktail cabinet, but alas, G was not convinced.
O, please, please bring us some retro luck!
G found this perfect fitting 3 piece brown pinstripe suit!
He was a very happy boy!
He needed a nice treat; he's been working so hard on the house, and still isn't finished!
This didn't do Nix justice, but I forgot to get a pic of the one that did!
My eyes are glowing with retro fever!
See the round fishy thing hanging behind me?
There were loads of those, and we didn't have a clue what they were about....apparently they were a 70's thing, for holding your paper plate at a BBQ!
Sinbad the frigging dolphin?!
What I found at Retro Funk was the yellow case, the 60's frock, the pale pink 60's hat and matching gloves!
At the Salvation Army I found the brown vinyl overnight bag for 50c (!), the crimplene spotty jacket in a foul but fabulous colour, two scarves, 2 ties for fancy dressing, and the red 70's vinyl gloves!
I'm pretty pleased with my loot.
Later, we all wore our new goodies when we went out to dinner at the Loan and Merc and onto The Penguin Club to catch a few bands!
The hat and gloves are sooooo pale pink, and sooo pretty!
Yowza, another hat for my collection!
Gawd help me, I'm supposed to be saving myself for the grand Two Squirrels sale this coming weekend!
