Could the vintage community be the secret to stamping out online trolls with positivity?
This is the question one incredible pinup from Perth in Australia is asking as she combines her love of vintage with her academic career.

Growing up during the Rockabilly revival in the 1980’s Kirsty Wallett, aka France Flathead , was surrounded by vintage cars, fashion and music.
So it’s not surprising that as an adult she found herself living a vintage life.
But even still, like so many of us, it has been an interesting journey.
A collection starts with just one piece.
Something catches your eye because of the colour, the design, the purpose and then before you know it you have 2, 5, 10 and on it goes, until you hit 1,500 pieces of Pyrex!
Or is that just what happened to Stan Savellis from That Retro Piece?
It was while living in rural Austria that Waltraud Reiner remembers her first hat.
Even though it belonged to traditional dress, it was considered “out there” because of it’s vibrant red colour.
But that wasn’t where she fell in love with hats. That happened years later in Australia.
This week we are taking a virtual tour of Australia’s longest running milk bar.
You might expect it to be based in Sydney or Melbourne but that’s not the case. This piece of history can be found in the remote mining town of Broken Hill.
So pull up a chair and get ready to devour a milkshake at Bells Milk Bar.
