We barely spent any time at home this weekend, lots of things to see and do. I was hoping to get this post up yesterday but was too exhausted to even switch on the computer. So, without further ado...
Saturday morning saw Mdblm & I head back to Collingwood, this time for the Rancho Deluxe Swap Meet & Vintage Fair. There were lots of weird and wonderful things for sale; car parts, vintage clothing, engineering diagrams of god knows what, and even a tattooist offering $50 flash art on the spot. I scored a couple of CDs and a t-shirt for less than $10!! It was a great atmosphere and we met some lovely people in the process.

As an aside: The 'I asked her to dance' piece I posted last week has now disappeared and in its place is a boring, beige wall.
From Collingwood we headed off to East Ivanhoe for an 'open for inspection' on an amazing art deco property. Mdblm knows I'm a big art deco fan and properties like this don't come up for sale very often so we couldn't pass up the opportunity to have a sticky beak. Take a look at the pics below and you'll see why...

The new owners of this property will need to have deep pockets. Sadly it is not in a good state and is going to need a whole lot of work done before being up to today's living standards. That said, it really is a rare gem in a sought after location, and the awesome Formica table (and chairs) above are included in the sale. What more could you ask for?
