AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Hamper Yourself

This business used to be on the Nepean Highway opposite Dromana beach.
Now it has moved to a small group of shops further back from the main street.
The name is now Gourmet Emporium, specialising in hampers filled with the produce and wines of the Mornington Peninsula.
The above photo is of the original sign.

Try some temptations
Hamper yourself with delights
Your heart will thank you

And here is the new venue.

when I first clicked on your post (on my dashboard), I missed seeing the H in the sign. I thought, "I'd like to have some pampering." :) hamper myself might be good too! thanks for sharing so I could have a chuckle today!

Very cute punny name -- I like the old sign better. I think gift baskets/hampers like that are wonderful.

Clever name on the original sign. I'm glad they chose to include as part of the new sign. Sounds like a nice shoppe.
