When you walk through the foyer of one of Esk’s most historic buildings into this absolute treasure trove, expect to be transported by the colour and charm of classic homewares back to yesteryear.
In this quaint antique shop in Esk, just an hour and a half’s drive from Brisbane, it’s easy to lose time, and antique hunters will be smiling from ear to ear.
Despite boasting a small footprint, this country gem is jam-packed, floor to ceiling, with vintage treasures and antique delights, from the early 1900s right through to more modern days.
Clock enthusiasts might be spoilt with a timeless offering of grandfather clocks and, maybe even, grandmother clocks – basically a shorter version of a grandfather clock, with a slimmer case and shorter stature.
At every head turn, you will fall in love with a myriad of must-haves that have been lovingly procured.
Leadlight lamp lovers will find it hard to leave without a new beacon for the home making its way into their vehicle.
If vintage crockery or antique cutlery is more your thing, keep an eye out for silver-plated vintage cutlery boxed sets and full dinner sets as you meander between the display cases.
A massive selection of vintage cups and saucers, and tea sets, change regularly so be prepared to be impressed every visit.
A little room at the back of the main shop, with another small space off to the side, offers an ever-changing display of homewares – think antique kitchen scales, silver candlesticks and candelabras, glass vases, silverware and kitchen utensils, country belt buckles and more.
Whether it’s a statement piece or a reminder of yesteryear that you’re after, or maybe you’re simply wanting to toy with the idea of introducing an eclectic style into your modern home, a drive and a day trip to Esk in search of vintage treasure is well worth the effort.
