So off to Ashburton to pick up Marie for a girly day out. In the car we hopped with the dogs and first drove to Methven. Where there is Cafe Primo and Secondo - 38 Mc Millan Street. It is amazing. As the sign says, everything you use at the cafe is for sale. As well as there being lot of other things to look at and rummage through.
This sign greets you at the door.
Now it has been a while since I have been there. It used to be a second hand shop that had a cafe, now it really is a cafe that has a second hand shop. But the food and coffee were great and it was so relaxing and interesting choosing what chair use and fossick afterwards.

We had enough by then but another place very close is the Staveley store. This has recently been upgraded and there is now a gorgeous room with cosy fire and comfy seats for the winter. Or when we were there two weeks ago we sat outside under the gorgeous blossom tree and then went and walked to Sharplin Falls.
