Camp Hill Antique Centre and TART Cafe settles in to its brand-new digs

Though the closure of the Woolloongabba Antique Centre broke our hearts, we barely had time to mourn before Camp Hill Antique Centre opened and established itself as Brisbane’s new home of eclectic, pre-loved furniture and accessories. In addition to a gargantuan space filled wall to wall with all manner of paraphernalia, Camp Hill Antique Centre is also home to TART Cafe – a fetching mid-century inspired diner that plates up the perfect fare to fuel your imminent shopping spree. more

Salt Gypsy merges sustainability, sass and style for its swish surf gear

Sport in general tends to be a man’s world, which very much blows. As well as getting paid significantly less and often being shirked by the media in favour of their male counterparts, too often women in sport are represented as a less gritty, more pretty alternative. For example, in the world of surfing you’d be forgiven for thinking that the ladies are bound to bikinis, boardies and rashies, but there’s a player on the scene that’s offering a killer alternative. Salt Gypsy is pioneering a movement that celebrates female surf athleticism, diversity and style in equal measure, designed by those who walk the walk. more

Face the facts – here’s the rad stuff you could afford if you didn’t pay bank fees

Being an adult is exceptionally difficult and that is a stone cold fact, son. You might think you’re totally killing it by maintaining strong relationships, holding down a great job, finding time to socialise and going to the gym at least semi-regularly (you go Glen Coco!) but nobody has this whole grown-up thing locked down. Amongst neglected houseplants and awkward post-liking during a deep Facebook lurk, personal finances are some tricky waters to navigate. For example, do you have any idea how much you’re paying in account fees with your bank? Here at The Weekend Edition we sure didn’t, so our friends at BOQ challenged us to take a look at how much we were coughing up and where it could be better spent – on totally baller stuff. more

The Weekend Series: five things we are vibing on in August

In our opinion, August tends to be less appreciated than other months of the year. Perhaps it’s because it’s the last winter month before the delights of spring arrive, or maybe were too busy not ignoring how fast the year has gone that we purposely don’t acknowledge that August exists, but the middle child of the yearly dozen never fails to bring some exciting happenings to the table. This August is packed with coolness, including news of bars serving canned cocktails, cracking new television shows, handy technological accessories and more. See, if you paid attention to August every once in a while, perhaps you’d see all it has to offer. more

No apologies – Ellery brings soul to life with its rich and bold pre-fall collection

The word ‘soul’ is a pretty broad word with a range of loaded meanings, most of which are intangible. What does it mean to really have soul and how could one possibly translate that to the visual realm? One lady who personifies the sound of soul is Nina Simone, the badass 1960s songstress who was the epitome of the word in all facets of her life. It was the lure of her duality and power that inspired Ellery’s outstanding pre-fall collection, combining both boldness and fragility to push the brand’s aesthetic to new frontiers. more

A love affair for life – Kindling marries individuality with longevity

Depending on when you were born (and this may be a very sobering reality check), you may have lived in a glorious time when things were actually made to last.

However, there is a glimmer of hope – Kindling is a Melbourne-based clothing brand kicking it old school, dedicated to making cute clothes that go the distance. more
