The last few weeks have been surreal and exciting. Now it’s back down to earth with some bargains!
As usual, Two Squirrels Vintage in Milton has come up trumps with another lovely vintage dress, this time from the early 1940s. Closer to home, Maher shoes (in Wall Street Mall) really impresses with their unique and affordable footwear. New Zealander Glen Maher owns the company and designs all the shoes which includes the best men’s shoes around. The re-vamped and re-opened Dunedin Paper Bag Princess store is now run by a local and it shows! There’s some great bargains to be found for both vintage and designer lovers.
