  The Restoration Station sports the motto ‘the shop that time forgot’ and you will understand why when you walk through the doors of this renovator’s wonderland. The store is two levels packed with everything period renovators could desire, in fact The Restoration Station pride themselves on being a ‘renovator’s department store’ – you can buy everything under one roof. In the basement level you will find reclaimed items saved from houses being demolished. Here is where you may find a complete leadlight entranceway, salvaged from a demolished Adelaide mansion, or maybe an original mid 1850’s tin hip bath imported from Ireland. There’s also a showroom full of Australian antique furniture, and a huge range of cast iron garden seats, urns, street lamps etc, you could spend hours just fossicking. Then there’s the upstairs showroom at ground level. Here you will find every reproduction fitting and fixture you could require. Their extensive range includes brass hardware, period switches and lighting for Queenslanders, pressed metal ceilings, fireplaces and marble mantles, joinery, vanity units, mirrors, tapware and basins for bathrooms and kitchens, tiles, cast iron baths, windows and doors, the list is endless. The store is run by Jimmy and Merilyn Poulos who have 28 years experiencein the area. Jimmy says, “We are only too happy to help customers with their renovation questions and welcome customers to bring in their photographs to the store to give us a clear understanding of what they are trying to achieve. With the many years of experience we have had, we know what works and how it should look when it’s finished. Our reproduction items cover the period from 1870-1940’s, so whether customers have a grand Queenslander, a 1920’s bungalow or a simple workers cottage we can help them to select the correct period fittings and fixtures. Although the store is stocked to the rafters, what is on show in-store is only a small amount of what is available. “ If a customer can’t find what they want on display,  we have catalogues packed with products from which they can choose from.” The Restoration Station can also assist customer’s interstate. “We have a great website www.restorationstation.com.au , and also encourage customers to send us emails with photographs – “ We can send products anywhere in Australia.”
