When you think about it, very often when you go out in Melbourne it is a second hand experience. For example, on Wednesday I had coffee with my friend Bettina at Harvest in Station Street, Fairfield (the old Organic Gertrude) and took note (and a photo or two) of their easy-going second hand style.
Some lovely saucers for the latte and flat white, interesting side plates for the muffins, eclectic cushions on the bench seats.
And outside, a great collection of chairs! Second hand is the new black … well, it is pretty fun and EVERYWHERE.
