Treasure shop opens
WITH a love of antiques and the area, Robyn and Ray Mills opened Sadira Antiques and Collectables on Saturday, giving life back to Amamoor's first shop in Busby St.
The shop site, dating back to the 1930s, was the perfect place for Robyn and Ray to indulge their love of antiques and of Amamoor - a place where they can display preloved treasures and locally-made jewellery.
As previous owners and operators of Amamoor General Store and Post Office, from 2004 till mid 2009, Robyn and Ray are familiar faces in the area.
Growing up around Gympie, they moved to Amamoor in the early 1990s, and have a real love for the area.
"Amamoor is such a beautiful part of the Mary Valley," Robyn said. "It is handy to Gympie and the coast and it's a good area where people come for a weekend drive."
Sadira Antiques and Collectables stocks a wide range of vintage items, including fine bone china brands Royal Winton and Shelley and a range of antique household items and pre-loved jewellery.
The shop also sells handmade jewellery from local silversmith Ken Dickson.
Robyn said locals were supportive of their previous business and hoped people could "pop in and say hello".
"I really enjoy running the shop and providing another place where locals and holiday-makers can drop in and have a look around," she said.
Sadira will be open in conjunction with the Valley Ratter on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30am.
