- Store Updates
The current Melbourne lockdown for COVID, lockdown #4, was meant to last a week, so we did not provide an update on the website. But…. that lockdown has now extended for another week, so this update will hopefully clarify the rules and our situation.
If attending any of our market stalls, you must wear a face mask, and you must ‘sign-in’ with the Services Victoria app using the appropriate QR code on your phone, or register if you do not have a phone.
Our Amazing Mill Markets stall at Ballarat is open. Face Masks must be worn. As we live in Melbourne we cannot currently attend that store but hopefully that will change later in June 2021. The friendly staff at the Mill will be able to assist you.
Our Camberwell Antique Centre stall is open. Face Masks must be worn. While we live in Melbourne, Camberwell is just on 25km from our home and the current restrictions impost a 25km limit on our travel, so we may not be able to travel to this store either, but hopefully that will be ok from next week. The friendly staff at Camberwell Antiques will be able to assist you. Say Hi to Doug, Tanya, Peter or Rosemarie.
Yarra Glen Antique Centre is able to open within COVID restrictions, but is currently cut-off from Melbourne due to the storm events this week. The Yarra River flooding cuts the main road from Lilydale / Coldstream into Yarra Glen, and the store is also without power. The centre is hopeful that they can re-open on Monday June 14th and the friendly staff will be available to assist you.
Our website is operating, except we have been handicapped by the same weather events and have been without mobile phone reception or internet since Wednesday 9th June 2021. Hopefully that will be resolved by Tuesday, as it has delayed us from even viewing new sales orders. Just to cap it off, Monday is a public holiday in Melbourne, meaning that the Post Office will be closed and our next mailing day will be Tuesday 15th June.
Thanks to all our customers for your patience and please stay safe in this COVID-infected environment.
