A Cluster of Shops: Shopping at the Ginger Factory
Yandina Sunshine Coast, Queensland
Once this factory was the pride and joy of Buderim but alas "progress" forced the move to Yandina...so Yandina now benefits from having"Buderim Ginger" in its town.
The Ginger factory has been extensively written up by another member but in the end I decided it seemed wrong somehow for me to ignore this interesting place all together.
So here ar a few photos of the shopping opportunities
What to buy: There are a variety of shops here....The Dolls Cottage has an extensive range...you can buy Daniel O'Donnell music...a variety of sweets and today David came home with a replica of a pink cadillac ...shades of our visit to the Elvis festival in Parkes N.S.W.
Just inside the main entrance to the Ginger Factory itself is the main shop selling ginger and much more.
Your 'buying fingers' will itch ...but remember to look for light delights if you have a plane flight home looming...or else find a post office. ...actually the Ginger Factory may well help you out with shipping.
And you can shop on line!
What to pay: The sky is the limit!
Jeffers Market: A Convenience Store with Friendly Staff
Jeffers Market is situated along a row of shops. The frontage of this little convenience store is pretty inviting. They'd placed items such as pumpkins, tomatoes and jars of jam to create that welcoming feel to things.
When we entered the store, the front desk staff were all very friendly. Just felt so welcome in the town. Maybe I should migrate to Yandina and be one of the few Asian resident there. How about that? :)
What to buy: Fruits, food and also other food stuff. My family and I stepped in there to buy drinks as we felt so dehydrated. It may be winter but the sun was just scorching!
