Vintage in this decade is the rage and carries so many meanings along with varied styles or looks. Mrs. Peel, much like a museum of the '50s, '60s and '70s, also offers us a modern vintage collection - fine wools for the cooler seasons and snazzy colourful dresses for spring and summer. Here you can cross your vintage styles with multiple colourful options. And, if you want modern - this definitely is the shop. We have friends who travel from The Hills to Leura's Mrs Peel in order to maintain their vintage style. These are serious vintage shoppers and owner Jacquie seems to connect with them.
Sunglasses, jewellery - particularly the colourful bracelets - go so well with chic hats: red or black is trendy again this year. Belts and other accessories are stocked in plentiful supply and are reasonably priced. No matter the season, boots or shoes fly off the shelves of this popular shop but you must drop in frequently - shoes go so quickly.
The atmosphere is casual - we find it easy to browse (and shop) here and the staff is quite attentive.

"The heart has its reasons of which reason knows nothing" Blaise Pascal
The 14th is not merely a brilliant idea of Halmark Cards. Rather, the day has a special link to Roman history, to Christianity and to romance. Today, Business Insider Australia spells out this history: The Reason behind hearts & flowers.
However, tomorrow, the 14th or any day, you can take your Sweetie to several charming scenes for a delicious repast! For most, bookings are essential:
Start off the morning with an elegant tea at ByGone Beautys
Sunshine or Snow -- A teapot at ByGone Beautys
Perhaps Flower-Pot Scones might be your idea of saying 'I love you'. . . Wayzgoose Cafe owns the market on the delicate beauties.
If you love a garden and an historic setting, tea at Everglades Gardens Tearoom fits the bill. While in the heat we have been experiencing this summer, Everglads has seen cooler days as the photo below proves!
For elegant dining, Leura offers some of the best:
The Rooster Restaurant with a terrific lookout over the escarpment will also make the evening special with musicians, flowers and candlelight.
Bon Ton Bistro and its gorgeous outdoor venue is a favourite and the wine selection will please those conniseurs of the grape.
. BON TON
The Alex (Alexandra) at the top of the Mall offers a beautiful view across Leura and out to the escarpment. Great dining and wine for a lovely lunch or dinner at perhaps the oldest of Leura's settings.
And last but definitely not least, The Embers at the Fairmont Resort is the special place to wine and dine your loved one in 2017
