Oh Bendigo!

A few weeks ago, my lovely sister Sammie who sells AMAZING dresses and writes the blog, Lola and Joy, suggested we hit the road and do a day trip of opshopping in bendigo. I obviously did not say no, so on a monday morning, nice and early the 3 of us (Percy came along for the adventure) went to bendigo. My sister did the necessary research and found out that in bendigo and surrounding towns, there were 22 opshops waiting for us, 22!!! We didn't do all 22 but the ones we did were great. As well as fab opshops, we found some delightful cafes. One called Percy and Percy which was lovely. We had cakes and tea and I bought a cup that said Percy and Percy for Percy. Confused?! The other cafe was Old green bean where we had lunch. I had fetta nachos and an iced chai latte(the best). The store also sold vintage bits and pieces as well as just having the best table and chairs, pictures and flowers.

Have you been to bendigo before? Any country towns you can recommend for a good opshop crawl?
Hope you have all had a good week.
