We had an Ace time!

I belong to a few groups on FaceBook and had read some great reports of Ace Drapers in Roma - so definitely wanted to visit!

We rolled out of Ups n Downs and made our way back into Roma.  Erin had gone ahead so after parking Elmer and the trailer next to some nice bottle trees, we met her at Ace Drapers.

Nick waited outside with Bandit and the rest of us walked inside.  Wow!  What a place!  So much - everything!

Given so many references to my infamous stash, you will be pleased to hear that I did not succumb to the temptation of purchasing any more fabric!

Erin found some wool and buttons for her crafty creations.  Given all the range of choice, she did well to buy just two skeins and half a dozen buttons.

Vaughan requested a hat and hopefully will wear it often.

And me?  I try to buy practical souvenirs (our Ironfest fire poker, candle spike and toasting fork from Maldon as well as a shoe brush from Thargomindah).

I spotted a lidded enamel mixing bowl (similar to the one used by Jase from All4Adventure!) - and then Nick found a 6-cup Baccarat stainless steel teapot on special.  We were well pleased with our splendid finds, so paid up and headed back to the cars.
