The collection is owned by Dave Holden who appeared on Collectors earlier this year.
The lovely Levin had emailed me about the exhibition. I was so grateful and very excited.
And then I heard Dave Holden interviewed on the ABC on Sunday morning. Oh no! I had visions of bumper to bumper people rolling into the Museum (how selfish am I?). I truly wanted the exhibition to myself. Mostly so I could take some photos and not look like too much of a pillock!
A lot of the callers to the ABC reminiscenced about their old Mixmasters and even wanted to donate them (oh, pick me!) to Dave.
Surprisingly, there was only a handful of people at the Museum. Unley, in general, was deserted, probably because Sturt (aka Unley) were in the football finals (they lost) so maybe all the locals were at the footy?
This little restored number was for sale. I admit to hovering over it a lot. J suggested I find out the price but I tried not to waver. I would love it dearly but do I really need to spend (maybe) serious money on a Mixmaster? Yes, that's a rhetorical question.
The Museum also had a food exhibition Dig In, Don't Wait, about Australians' eating habits: breakfast, lunch and tea! It was great too. Lots of fantastic retro styling and great hands-on elements.
