An Aladdin's Cave

...for Genies that is.

Top of my list while holidaying in Adelaide was a trip to Gould Genealogy's retail outlet in suburban Adelaide. This morning after dropping the family at Adelaide Zoo to say g'day to the pandas we set off along the North Eastern Road to Ridgehaven where we found Gould's shop.

Many of us have bought goods online from Gould but few have probably had the opportunity to visit their store. As online sales form the greater part of Gould's business they have only a small retail outlet but altough it is small it still has many goodies to tempt the genealogist. I was quite restrained and only purchased three books (there would probably have been more but Mr Geniaus was looking over my shoulder.

We couldn't miss the shop wth this sign on the roadside
It was easy to find he shop from Adelaide's CBD
There was a warm welcome from Gould's riendly Alona from the Lonetester blog
I found a couple of treasures on this shelf

and resisted the bargains in the clearance corner
Lachlan who will be on the 4th UTP Cruise was busy in the backroom
I'm not into scrapbooking but if you are there's lots there for you

They even stock Geneafashion

And tech toys I don't own
Alona had some good advice

You will have no trouble putting a hole in your wallet if you visit Gould's store.

It was wonderful to have you visit, and for the great pics that you and Mr Geniaus took of our shop. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in SA.

What a wonderful store - every city needs one like this, eh?! And you clearly had a fabulous time digging through for treasures!
Cheers,

Thanks Jill, for virtually taking me there.

Bricks and mortar genealogical companies are as rare as rubies. Gould's is doing a wonderful job, and I was so pleased to join you with them on the 3rd cruise. Not for the 4th, but maybe again we'll enjoy another together in the future.
