What do you do while sitting on public transport? well, you whip out your post it notes (that you no doubt flogged borrowed from the office stationery cupboard!) and you get drawing. We came across this very clever person who used the people that sat near him/her as unknowing models, and with a bit of imagination created some brilliant comic relief to wile away the boredom of training it home from work.
We would love to give the artist credit for this post, if anyone knows who they are, please flick us an email at


50's GLAM

It's not too often, that us girls at Ahka HQ get to hold and touch a dress from such an iconic era, the 1950's! Just arrived, is this ah-mazing broderie anglaise lace dress (Phew! that's a mouth full, try saying that fast three times!)
Made in 1957 as a wedding dress from a tiny town wayyyy up in North Queensland, Cooktown.
This dress is one of the most beautiful we have seen in a long time, with it's flowing skirt and fitted waistline that compliments a women's figure to perfection.
If you are looking for that one of a kind wedding dress,(we will even throw in the veil and headpiece that was made to go with this totally awesome dress.) or just something to wear for that special occasion, do yourself a favour and check this one out here. (we guarantee that you will not bump into someone else at the same event wearing the same dress as you, the horror!!),



We have found some little gems recently while stalking all the OP shops in the area, like these amazing (and new) original 1970's uncut fabric.  They are pretty amazing, and for those of you that like to do arty farty crafty things, or can sew, then these pieces are for you.  Each of them are enough to make something decent out of, and also to have something that hasn't been used (and vintage) adds to the coolness of owning it.
Check them all out here


A sneak peek of some of the denim glory coming to the store just in time for those gorgeous summer months.  Beautiful vintage Levi's featuring lace and floral details.



Ahhh, crochet! there is something magical about this type of fabric, I don't know what it is, but everytime i see it, it makes me all whimsical and my hippie side comes out, and it makes me want to go and join those lovely folk at Byron Bay and eat healthy and listen to cool 70's music.
One day! but in the meantime, if you feel the same as me, and actually want to eat healthy, listen to cool 70's music and get your hippie on, then you can check out the crocheted goodness we have in the store right now.
