Carmine's Antiques and Tapestries Gallery

Today we did one of our "half way" trips,picking up Granny from the Riverland at Blanchetown to come back to Adelaide.
We took a slightly different route home by driving from the Blanchetown Roadhouse across country to Morgan.
Morgan is a sleepy former River Port on the River Murray with much history.
In Morgan we came across Carmine's antique shop and tapestry gallery.
An amazing little place with a n amazing collection.
The Tapestry Gallery was all the creation of Carmine's late mother who did not start doing tapestries until she was 77.
We found a really interesting illustated book on the Phantom of the Opera.
The original story.
Well here are some pics to wet your appetite for Carmine's shop.
Morgan is about a 2 hour drive from Adelaide.
We enjoyed a leisurely trip home from there.
Stopping off at Mt. Mary and also at Tanunda where we visited Roger Murcott's amazing "Birds of a Feather " art gallery of Australian Birds.
I will write a separate post about that.
