Brisbane Sales

Natalie & I arrived in Brisbane

This morning

Every shop having sales...School Holidays not large crowds really to be seen .....

Lincraft had a great sale in the wool section...

I must say they have the best display of wool ...

Every time I visit Brisbane that section is 1st on my Stops ....

We decided to have a early lunch....

So off to the original Shingle Inn...

Looking around for a seat a elderly lady had room at her table ....I ask if it was o.k. for us to sit with her...of Course Darling was her answer...Having such a

great conversation...

Her name was Ivy ...and next month she will be having her 93rd birthday...

Amazing shopping once a week at her age ...

In the middle of the city....She needed to go

to Woolworth's...So she ask if we could mind her parcels .....

I felt very privilege for Ivy to ask....As we all live

in a not so nice World...

From time to time.....She trusted us...

We Headed over to David Jones Sales once again...

They have a wonderful shoe display....

Walking up the Mall we decided we needed chocolate from

Yes Darrell Lea

Well the shop has been modernised ...The Assistant....Ask my thoughts ....On the New look.....

I said sorry to Modern for me...When I was a girl The ladies behind the counter's uniform being

colourful blouse and very large Bow .....

She said yes I have seen pictures

Boy how old am I ...(55)

The Police have a car decorated for the big Game tomorrow

Night

The sun shone all day

A few bargains Travelled

safely home we us ....

Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh......

Shingle Inn was always a favourite of mine, they made the best Lemon Meringue and I love how they tied the boxes with string! I used to love eating there before it was refurbished, think that was about the year 2000.
Feels like ages since I was last in Brissie, maybe one day I'll get back there to shop in Queen St Mall.
