Alice in Arcade Land

Alice in Arcade Land

This delightful local Toowoomba vintage store is stacked full of retro goodness from the minute you step into the front door. The shelves are filled full of old trinkets that make for gorgeous presents at any time of year.

And then there’s the vintage clothing from night gowns to evening and everything in-between including accessories from hats and gloves to shoes belts and wigs!


The pics in this post are from a rendezvous at Alice in Arcade Land working with professional pin-up models and a really fun collection of young women, all who heard the call and came to do a shoot with the most amazing little retro vintage store on the Darling Downs, and for those who are from out of town a worth while drive from Brisbane if you’re looking for a fabulous outfit for a special occasion or for a gift that you will find hard to to find anywhere else.


Rant Magazine would like to thank the models involved and so we are adding some links to this feed so you can find them if you’re looking for pin up models.


Absolutely amazing high quality vintage garments. Every time I visit the store I am greeted by wonderful friendly service with a smile :) nothing is ever too much trouble and as well as offering gorgeous one off statement pieces.

Mel’s family owned business is able to provide competitively priced services for garment adjusting, mending and garment care expertise!

As a lover for all things vintage I find Alice in Arcade Land exceptionally priced with garments I haven’t been able to come across in years!

A true treasure and a must see! You won’t be disappointed :)

Airplane travel

Airplane travel


Hey everyone, tomorrow I’m heading to Sydney for this thing with work. Anyway that got me thinking as I started to get my things ready for the trip. It’s only a day trip btw, but I need to pack a bag to carry on the plane, and in this case a briefcase. So as I cleaned out the unnecessary items out of my bag, I came across loads of bobby pins, and that got me thinking about my hair extensions…. Has anyone ever traveled on an airplane with clip in hair extensions? … I wonder if any of you have had an experience of this nature yourself?

Plane Travel

Tomorrow will be an early start, up at 4am, bound for Sydney for an adventure with my job. I’m packing my laptop for the workshop and my camera in case I get some time after the meeting to snap some pic’s. While I was looking for feedback on wearing metal hair extensions I came across this cute little video on hair and makeup and thought some of you girls might appreciate another tutorial. So sit back and enjoy this cute little video by Alex Marie…and if you like her video here is the link to her Utube pages.

Love your life. Do your thing!
Send us your experiences, what are you waiting for!
