What to bring when you’re antiquing in Tasmania?
With so much on offer, you’ll want to bring a bag big enough to pack all your purchases and carry them home. If you’re travelling from interstate, you’ll want some hardshell luggage to keep your items safe on the plane ride home (our picks are Samsonite or American Tourister).
