Shop Doors in a Country Town

“I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I’m not afraid to look behind them.” – Elizabeth Taylor

Sassafras is a charming, quaint little village that city dwellers love to visit on weekends. It is a cool 30 minutes drive from my place (which is very accessible) and about an hour drive from Melbourne CBD.

These are doors to dress shops…and there’s lots of them… don’t you wonder why I love going to this place?

Candle shop, ice cream, lollies, gift shop, book store, nursery and ladies accessories…

My favourite healthy kind of cafe or restaurant.

But some are still closed as yet, since the announcement for opening retail has just been announced. I feel bad because that Japanese arch is an entry to a bonsai shop and I love going there.

    Nice! The one with the birds is so pretty. It wins the week for me. “Quirky” is an attention-getter too, especially with its nice weathered look. Fun post 🙂

      Thanks for liking it. There is always a surprise element even though I’ve been there a lot of times already. Have a good day Norm.
      I still wonder why every week your comment goes to Spam…whenever I notice that there’s no comment from you, i always have to check and voila it is there.

    Normally, you’d be standing outside, waiting for the people to clear long enough to get a photo of the door. It’s particularly sad to see retail shops like this.I hope they can survive.

      That is what we are all hoping now. It has been 2 weeks of 0 cases here in Melbourne so fingers crossed situations here will get better economically. Thanks for dropping by Dan.

          It has been a hard few months just to get to that ever elusive 0. To maintain it is another thing. It came to a point where the rest of Australia didn’t want to know us, here in Melbourne.

            That’s where we were during July and August. Then things started creeping back up. It’s not as bad here in Connecticut as it is in many other states, but we’re very small. It’s impossible for us to not permit travel from other states.

  5. The impact of C-19 on retail is sad and worrying, but these are great pictures. I also like bonsais.

      Yes, the retail business is open now but not nearly even a quarter of the usual people can be seen.
