Continuum at Eumundi

Another fabulous vintage/retro/antique shop I stumbled upon while on my travels was Continumm in Eumundi on the Sunshine Coast in QLD, the shop is located in the main street directly across from the famous Markets. The owners do two buying trips to England and France a year and specifically search for well priced Art Nouveau and Art Deco pieces (my personal favorites!) and ship them back throughout the year.

I found so many beautiful and surprisingly affordable treasures at this little shop it was overwhelming, when you first walk in your initial scan will see a few lovely pieces but it is not until you really start to look through each part of the store that you see just how many gems there are. I visited the store near the beginning of my trip and was worried about my budget so just bought one beautiful french fashion print from the 1920s but after a week of dreaming about two amazing glass pieces and a vintage enamel brooch I knew I had to return before our trip was over.

So my mother and I returned on my last day and she spoiled me by buying me one of the beautiful Art Deco bowls I had been dreaming about in a lovely pink shade and I was so happy to see that the other glass piece - a English small rose vase in a light green shade was still waiting for me as was the beautiful Weiss enamel vintage brooch in coral and yellow.

While I was there I also found a new item that had just be put out, another beautiful Art Deco glass piece in a soft pink shade but this time a lovely medium size vase, I had to have it. So visiting this shop was my super indulgence and I don't regret it at all as I picked up 5 amazing pieces all very special, great quality and well priced.
