After the Greens, the Young Family took up residence at the Mossy Point Post Office. Ron and Rita Young, and their daughter Lynnette lived at the Mossy Point Office from 1950 -1962. Ron extended the building, with a larger room on the east end for an expanded post office and telephone exchange. The exchange used a 'plug and cord' switchboard. For more information on the Youngs and their telephone exchange, please visit the website Broulee Bay: Folklore, Myth & Legend
, which has a dedicated page.
Lynnette Timmis (nee Young), a longtime resident of Mossy Point, had once recalled that cigarettes were hard to obtain, so the Youngs kept them under the counter for favoured customers. Beer was sold at the Mossy Point Office under the ownership of the Youngs, and if purchased, was noted on account as "1 dozen hard-boiled eggs". Lobsters were two shillings each. Commonwealth Oil Refineries-brand petrol (which later became BP) was hand pumped (you pulled a lever back and forth) into a six gallon (26 litre) glass reservoir at the top of the bowser, which was then gravity fed into the vehicle's petrol tank. During summer holidays the tea shop was often the
venue to attend for a social gathering.
The Mossy Point Post Office had several owners after the Youngs, after the post office officially closed in 1984. Several years passed, where the Mossy Point Post Office was used by draughtsmen, stood empty, was used to store pinball machines, and was used as a second-hand book exchange. In 1993, Joanne Gifford began a small pastry operation out of the shop, and sold her delicious pastries door to door. Word of her pastries quickly reached far and wide. Such was her success that she subsequently refurbished the old post office and opened her newly-branded shop, 'Just Muffins'. The building was refurbished again in 1997, with the period advertisements seen to this day on the roof's exterior refreshed at that time. In 2003, Sue Dickinson partnered with Joanne and the shop was renamed 'Muffins and More'. In 1987, the Mossy Point Post Office would go through another name change to 'The Muffin Shop and The ARTery'. In 2015, the shop was purchased and refurbished by the current owners and renamed 'The Mossy Cafe'. And the rest is…history!
