A NEW LOOK FOR DIRTY JANES BOWRAL 

Renovations at Dirty Janes Bowral are finally complete after a very busy 12 months. Thank you for your patience throughout this process. We’re sure you’ll agree the transformation from a year ago is breathtaking, making what was a tired ‘Acre’ of buildings now a fabulous must visit shopping destination in the Southern Highlands.

In recent weeks the courtyard has reopened between Dirty Janes and The Acre, once again creatively transformed by Maureen & Chris from The Potting Shed. Bursting with blooms, topiary, garden ware and more, it is a beautiful oasis that will bring a smile to your face and sense of calm as you wander through out.

Author, Journalist & Style Expert Melissa Penfold believes Dirty Janes is ‘The Most Popular Vintage Shop in Australia’  Wow, it doesn’t get better than that now does it? Thank you Melissa!  Click Here to read her recent post and enjoy imagery of Melissa’s stunning Southern Highlands home, showcasing various pieces she has purchased from us in the past.

Melissa also featured The Inspired Paddock (located in store) naming it the ‘Happiest Shop in the Southern Highlands!’  Stocking unique handmade wares, rustic wreaths, board games, antlers and plenty of fabulous Christmas gift ideas, be sure to take a look when you’re next in store!picmonkey-collage-2CHRISTMAS GIFTS IDEAS IN STORE.

Don’t forget Dirty Janes Bowral Gift Vouchers are available and make a perfect gift!

THRIFTY THURSDAY – Blue & Green Should Never Be Seen….

Inspiration for todays Thrifty Thursday blog comes from the old saying  that ‘Blue and green should never be seen, unless there’s a colour in between’.

But we’re ignoring that age old advice because we feel these 2 colours, who live side by side on the colour wheel, work beautifully together!

Blue & Green also conjure up thoughts of Spring, a glorious season that brings rolling green hills topped with expansive blue skies, the promise of warmer weather which is a lovely thought in the midst of our current dull winter days.  DJ
