From Cairns Karen  ;)

Perhaps you could check out the op shops up there INATD, not sure what shops Cairns has.  Maybe some locals will help out with this query.

I have been looking for somewhere on the gold coast to buy nice small bottles to put homemade baileys in.  No luck yet

Maybe try the reject shop at Mt. Sheridan, Big W at fish on a stick

WA seems to miss out on a lot of stores that are in the eastern states.  There must be some sort of cheap jack stores over there surely.
