It promised to be the most interesting vintage sale of the year in Brisbane. Carmel Bullivant, a wealthy socialite, was selling off her collection of vintage dresses, smalls and accessories to the public and store owners alike.
I didn't have any intention to buy (I was saving cash for a different event that fortnight) but I was definitely not going to miss the chance to go and see what treasures would be upturned by this big sell-off.
There were a few familiar faces at the sale, including the beautiful
Mae-Em and Lisa, the ever glamorous owner of Atomic Martini Vintage.
And there were some lovely pieces too, and a few I would have taken home with me if the price had been right.
