The Grainery

Ceramic Porcelain Stools






Looking down from top floor.


There are literally thousands of porcelain lamp bases.





I think this bedhead would like great painted white for a little girls room!



I don't know if I should be telling you this secret but when your on to a good thing it's best to share with your friends no? The Grainery is Murwillumbah's best kept secret. Well It's not really a secret seeing as people come from far and wide to visit this magnificent treasure trove! (They have people who travel from Brisbane by the busload). You will surely be sooo overwhelmed when you go inside and realise that you will need about 3 hours just to SCAN the goods. Michael the owner is impossibly eccentric, straightforward and gloriously witty and if your good looking he will give you a discount! Ha! I found myself flirting with him shamelessly (Please note he is over 60) to get a good price for those magnificent ceramic stools above. So next time your in Murwillumbah be sure to drop in! It is seriously well worth it!

Wow, that looks like an amazing place. While some people might not have the energy to go through everything, I looks like a fantastic place to find your own little treasure to take home! (or more than one!)
