'Highly Collectable'

"Our admiration of the antique is not admiration of the old, but of the natural",
Ralph Waldo Emerson. 
Located in Port Chalmers this little Op.Shop called 'Highly Collectable' is a must see.When I walked in the door I felt as if I was transported to someone's Grandmas house and almost expected to smell biscuits baking!The shop is full of wonderful antique finds and you could spend an eternity browsing through all it has to offer.I fell in love with this shop upon entry and couldn't take myself away from this 'old' genuine leather satchel bag in particular.I dont like to think of the items as 'old', I would much rather the term 'loved' :).Each piece has a story to tell and provides inspiration for those who dare to be different.What is refreashing is knowing that it will be less likely you hear someone saying "Oh my god, I have that exact same dress,Glassons right?!"
