Wall Art


The Bestest and I went walk-abouts in Hillcrest on Saturday morning to kill some time while we waited to meet the dressmaker. Strolling from shop to shop around the Heritage Market and surrounds, we decided to pop into Wetherleys because neither of us had been in there for yonks.

What a shit hole. Seriously. I now remember why I never pop in there, and it’s not just because I can’t afford anything. The place is an absolute mess. Things are broken and left lying desecrated in the cobweb filled corners. And the further into the store you go, the more shit-hole-ish it becomes. It looks like they’re half way through packing up and moving out. Things are half unwrapped, mirrors are cracked, teddy bears lie with their faces up each others bums and to say that it’s a d├ęcor maze is a little bit of an understatement. What a sad sad store. Poor Wetherly’s Hillcrest.

But on the up side, I did manage to take some snaps of these gorgeous pencil wall drawings in the kiddies section. Pity they're tucked away in the dingy poepal of the store.




sorry for the terrible quality pics - I'm working on the fee-arn-say to get me an iPhone
