Today is your last chance to leave a comment & be in the draw to win a mixed dozen of Logan Wines! Entries close at 9pm EST & the winner will be announced in Briar's final post tomorrow. But for now, Briar reveals some of her where to shop secrets in Mudgee. - Jenny x

As a props buyer, I have to admit that I pretty much shop for a living. Whenever I am in a small country or coastal town I jump at the chance to visit my beloved opportunity shops and bargain basements. In between snapping the food and wine shots, I got a chance to check out what thrifty Mudgee had to offer.

It is all about luck, and there are definitely good and bad days in the land of thrift shopping. I happened to be in Mudgee on a good day, and managed to score the trio of ceramic plates above for $15.00. I was attracted to the colours, and love that someone's collection from the past has been kept together.

I could spend hours in a giant place like The Reject Shop too - I like to sort through the crap and celebrate the quirky. The plastic cow from Mudgee is now grazing in our herb garden in Manly.

If thrifting isn’t your thing, Juliet Horlsey has a lovely shop in the centre of town that is loaded with rustic and unique items. I especially love the range of cowboy hats that are exclusive to her store.

I’ll see you back here tomorrow for one last post, and to let you know the lucky Logan Wines winner.
