Camperdown is a sleepy little country town that really wakes up when the Cruise is on.
The area surrounding Camperdown is known for its 'dry stone walling' - fences made out of volcanic rocks, held together by nothing more than friction and gravity. You know you're getting close when you can see the grey stone walls dotting the landscape.

How great is this two-tone Beetle, complete with vintage luggage on the roof?
The winner of the Pin-Up Competition, Miss Amelia Mae.
My favourite vintage dealer (and a good mate) Christine, from Classic Vintage based in Mittagong.
Check out the fabric on some of her dresses!
I love that she takes the time to colour co-ordinate, as well as writing the bust/waist measurements on the price tags.
Our Swing Dancing teacher Bruce, and his partner Dean.
One of our friends in her killer 'Map of Tassie' skirt, made out of a vintage tea-towel.
For all the non-Aussie's out there, here's a link to what it means...
And finally, a quick sneaky peaky of some of things I came home with:
From the upper left: 50's acetate, 1940's cotton (six meters!), tea towels from the 1940s and 50s, more fabric and some knitting books I don't have yet.
I hope you like the photos!
