I had to make a mad dash off set a few days ago to purchase items from two of my favourite stores. We needed a hand prop in the form of an old-school Slinky from Remo General Store in Bondi (the place to go for any random Kris Kringle gifts that may be on your list). I then drove on to Darlinghurst to pick up a vintage dome lamp shade from Ken Neale. I haven't mentioned Ken on here before, but I certainly should have. Ken is the king of collectors in all things 20th Century Modern - the film industry would be lost without his bulging warehouse full of beautiful period items for hire. It's worth visiting the showroom in Darlinghurst - literally 4% of his personal collection. His minimal (and matchbox tiny) christmas window display made me smile too - Ken is not one for frills.
