Autumn: April, May
Winter: June, July
Sprinter: August, September
Sprummer: October, November

Hula milk crates


Have a cup of coffee at Cafe Art in Surry Hills, and you could find yourself sitting on a hula milk crate, resting your drink on a double-decker.

It's a new use for all those old vinyl record storage units!
