Olympia Milkbar

Heading up to Sydney soon. Must remember to pop into this classic 50's milkbar in Parramatta Road. Lots of old laminex and great milk shakes. (really hoping it's still there!) I love vintage laminex almost as much as I love lino.
I scored a big piece from a house reno down the road All the kitchen benches were topped with this retro Australiana laminex . Not very P.C. this day and age, but cool just the same.


  1. It is cool. I'll love to see what you make of it. Liked your coincidences stories very much!

  2. That is sensational! I've got a small amount of lino for you too.

  3. The laminex is FANTASTIC.

    Have you ever seen it's cousin, the yellow kangaroo laminex?

    It was years ago, but I was never able to forget it.


Hi! It's very nice to receive your comment. I'll go and visit you too.
