Sad sad Monday shoes!!!

Oh sweetpeas I am so sorry to be only posting now, it has been the most terrible of times!!!
These are the shoes I was wearing on Tuesday when the earthquake hit!
They had to carry me through horrible and dangerous grounds as our beautiful city was shaken to the core.
They have become a reminder of how lucky we have been.
The fate of the shops is an unknown and as much as it breaks my heart to think of all the treasure broken, we are so blessed to not be broken ourselves.
Heavy hearts and lots of tears for all!!!
Warren and I have to rethink our lives and we will be facing many interesting and trying days ahead. V

A tick on the "vintage list"

I was so excited to recently purchase from a gorgeous lady the most fabulous 1950's faux fur leopard print cape! Oh so cutie kitten!!
All dressed up and off to the burlesque show as part of the buskers festival. The perfect outing for this new treasure!! So in love with her.

Our fur baby!!!!

This is "Morgan" or mugs as she is called, it is her 17th birthday on the 28th of February. She is our fur squirrel at home! V

Two Squirrels after boxing day!

Two Squirrels before the boxing day shake.

Boxing day earthquake UPDATE.

Our store in the Cashel Mall - Two Squirrels Vintage clothing & Curios was badly damaged in the boxing day earthquake, and has been out of action ever since.

We are hoping to be back up and running in the same location, but the buildings repairs may take a couple of months.

So as an alternative we have decided to convert our workroom (which is just across the hall from the main shop) into a temporary store.

We will keep you posted on an opening date for this temp- 'mini' Squirrels.
