Shirley brought along scales which she bought at an auction in a very old and mouldy cardboard box containing lots of black objects which she recognised as scales. Now beautifully polished, with a missing part they make a lovely display.
The scales came from Mrs. Sherwill’s Fruit Shop in Carrier Street, Benalla. Some members’ were able to remember this shop in the 1950’s which was next door to Rossmore Private Hospital which is now occupied by Edspace.
We were pleased to welcome Bev’s sister Janette who brought along their mother’s toy electric stove, complete with a tiny oven in which she remembered cooking cup-cakes as a child.
Next month guest speaker Graydon Johnson from GW Gadd Antiques of Avenel and Chiltern will attend.
