Over the Easter I went to Berrima, a historic village in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. It’s about 2 hours drive from Sydney and there are a few cute antique shops along the way.
The antique shop in Berrima town centre is closed. At first I thought it was just closed for Easter Sunday but this time, the shop is shut for good. It seems that the whole place has been deserted with no signs like “For Lease” or “For Sale” to show the prospect of a new owner. It was just completely empty and awfully quiet. There was no life around the shop apart from those beautiful bright yellow roses beaming up in slanting rays of sun.
Antique and collectables, together with vintage clothing were huge back in 2007-2010 but obviously trend comes and goes. I just hope someone will come to water those roses from time to time…
