I love having a mix of old and new things in my house. I am not a collector of what I call 'real' antiques, but I love browsing through second hand stores and markets for furniture or accessories that have been pre-loved. We lived for a while in Melbourne, and I really miss the fantastic Sunday market they have at Camberwell. You could never predict what you might find there and part of the thrill was getting through the gates at 6am with the traders and dealers and trying to be the first to spot the bargains. Of course, a hot chocolate and sugary donut was also part of the whole experience!
