Where has the year gone? It seems just moments ago we were visiting towns and friends across Australia and now here we are back in Geelong looking at some samples of next year's range. There are some lovely new colours in the possum knitwear and we may have a completely new range as well. In the meantime there is some old stock to clear. Many beautiful garments have been reduced to half price or even less. Even the classic and cable jumpers and cardigans you can't live without have been reduced. So it is a good time to pick up a lovely new cardigan for the Spring at very special prices. Caroline and Al
We stayed in these pretty little cabins at the Trangie Caravan Park. Andrew and Deb have a very nice establishment away from the main highway. These cabins are from Lithuania and are very comfortable. It was great to meet so many people in the Trangie CWA room and, as can be seen they found many good buys on the day.
We met some new customers on a very cold day in Forbes. Today has been a very pleasant cruise to Trangie via Trundle. Almost no traffic, good roads and the country looks terrific, if a little wet. Couldn't pass through Bogan Gate without commenting on the War Memorial, wondering about the decision-making process to site it in the middle of the road. Perhaps the memorial was there first. Trundle, the town with the ABBA festival, is also the town with the widest main street we have ever seen. About 60 metres curb to curb. Al and Caroline
Setting off for our next trip north coincided with one of the coldest bursts of winter in south eastern Australia. Whilst we were never high enough to encounter snow, the cattle we saw in sunshine one day were munching ice the next morning. Lots of water in the Lachlan valley, everything green but winter damp. Good weather for possum knitwear. See you tomorrow in Forbes. Caroline and Al
