Well it’s a new year so I figured it’s time for a new Garterbelts & Gasoline update.
Last year, this event was pretty much the only aspect of the festival that I didn’t get along to because I was too busy sleeping in but from all the accounts I heard about last year, this is really one not to be missed!
The Garterbelts & Gasoline High Tea & Vintage Shopping Tour is THE ULTIMATE girly day. Hosted by the lovely Mistress Chrissy of Lindy Charm School For Girls fame, the tour departs St Bernards Hotel on the Saturday morning for a day of vintage shopping delights.
You’ll be pampered from beginning to end with the Mount Tambourine replica trolley chauffeuring you around for the day and no day of girly shopping would be complete without the provisions to fortify yourselves for the adventure ahead. So beginning with a rather proper high tea in rooms filled with retro treasures you can indulge in a scone and a spot of tea (or coffee!) before setting off to explore the beautiful sights of Mount Tambourine.
Touring the mountain and its gorgeous scenery, you’ll be taken to all the finest vintage shops where you’ll have the chance to discover a range of retro treasures which you can make your very own. Mistress Chrissy will be on hand to assist with any vintage style and care questions you may have, and of course to provide her very valuable opinion.
I am told the day finishes up with a cheeky glass of champagne and who knows, you might even find that perfect outfit for the remaining days of the festival!
As you can imagine, attendance to such a fabulous day is in high demand so pre-bookings are a must! Tickets are $30 and include transport, the tour and high tea. Contact Mistress Chrissy on 0409 727 888 to secure your spot for style advice from some of the best and a day of vintage girly fun!
