YAY FOR COOL STUFF/PEOPLE
I just got home from visiting this adorable new little vintage and craft shop called The Bread and Butter Letter which has a site here and a blog here.
It’s run by two ladies, one of whom is an old friend of mine from school, who is lovely and has a tumblr here. They have many beautiful things (I cannot possess them all) for sale including clothes, scarves, shoes, preeety bags, frames, journals, belts, hats and soft toys like this one:
which are made by another old school friend of mine Polly, who has sites here and here and has been drawing these amazing little guys for a long time (I have fond memories of entertaining French classes).
Here are some nice pictures of the shop from their blog:
It’s a really friendly little place which has tea and biscuits sitting on the table and may be a venue for future scrabble championships.
So anyway, I got these REALLY cute frames which I intend to fill with brand new lenses (which will hopefully allow me to see street signs again) so that I can finally live my dream of having glasses like an accountant from the sixties.
And here is a picture of me doing my librarian face:
With gross Auckland-humidity hair.
I LOVE them and would start wearing them immediately if I could actually see.
I implore all of you Aucklanders to visit the shop, 66 New North Rd Eden Tce.
It’s really the smart thing to do.
