Woollongabba gabba hey!

Mid-century modern retailers are the order of the day at Woollongabba. The city-fringe suburb is also home to the 'Gabba and the Brisbane Lions, but we went for the antique shops. The Woollongabba Antique Centre is the pick of the retailers, with a large array of shopkeepers with consignment spaces. Among the best on show were Danish sideboards,vintage lighting, kitsch naked lady art prints, '50s and '60s glassware, a lovely smattering of industria and plenty of vintage frocks, hats, bags and accessories. The fashion was steep, with most dresses in the $100-$200 bracket. Amazingly, I grabbed a great '70s jade polyester disco-stylised kaftan with silver glittery ric-rac detail for a mere $29.
