The Old Bakery - A Melburnian knows when to stay the course and when to veer off - our city is a grid, we know we'll eventually get back! In this case when travelling around Australia the best thing you can do is follow your nose when you see one of those interesting brown tourist signs. In this case I veered of down Martin St, Dunkeld to visit the Old Bakery, a gorgeous old building, offering artful, tasty breads, pastries, pies and cakes. I indulged in a hearty country-style sausage roll.

Mailors Flat Antiques - Delicious shopping at Mailors Flat, second-hand heaven much like the Vintage Market in Tyabb - there is amazing silverware in corners that have not been touched for years. Perfect place to find a treasure, not a bargain. The Featured image above shows my intrepid tour guide hunting out second-hand treasures in the Mailors Flat Antiques old tram car.

Warrnambool Traders Market - Not strictly the Western District but was part of this tour, the Warrnambool Traders Market is much like the Prahran or Brunswick Bazaars. While I wouldn't call my purchases exactly bargains, it was certainly the place in town with the most variety and reasonable prices.

The Argyle Shop, Hamilton - The Argyle Shop is an enterprise of the local Uniting Church, who have taken over one of the empty old pubs in town and given it a new lease on life as an op shop. It is a bustling store full of china, glassware, appliances and furniture. My Aunt introduced me to Liz who often points out to visitors the best buys and has a sharp eye for quality.

The Salvation Army, Hamilton - Next stop the Salvo's, where my tour guide bought some winter leather gloves.

St Vincent's, Hamilton - Some beautiful finds at stop no.1, St Vinnie's, a including a sweet little retro salt cellar than I have seen prices at $50+ in Melbourne for $2! This is the op shop where my Grandfather volunteered in his retirement.
