Far Fetched Designs - A Pop Up Shop in Yarraville by handmade artists. Ideal for Christmas Gift Shopping!

Recently I have decided to be part of the wonderful Pop Up Shop in Yarraville called Far Fetched Designs.

Far Fetched Designs pop-up shop is a co-operative run by Rachael from Frock Swap and Orcwood and Belinda of Mr Moo Designs
130 Gamon st, Yarraville. 3013

It features a “curated collection of unique handmade items from local artists, makers and crafters".

This store is temporary and will move to different venues throughout the year. It's the second phase of the venture (they were in Anderson st, Yarraville mid this year for about two months).
Each location brings new handmade artists and and some regular artists with high quality items and Australian made too. Actually, mostly made in Melbourne!
They call it a "a gift paradise", I have to agree.  It's certainly a visual treat!


Christmas is getting closer, now is a great time to visit Far Fetched Designs!
"Be organised and pop into Far Fetched Designs to get the perfect gifts for babies, kids, Sisters, Friends, Teachers, Mums, Aunts, Nan, the next door neighbour, Nieces, even Dads and Brothers (maybe even for hubby)  And we even have cards and wrapping paper too.  Too easy!"

No mass-produced items here!
Just Unique and mostly One of a Kind (OOAK) items.
Remember, when you buy handmade you are carefully selecting that 'special something for someone special in your life'.
A gift to say that you have really thought about them & that you care.

Handmade Christmas Flag bunting decoration now available.

Yes, it is getting to that time of year.
Again I'm stunned to think Christmas really is around the corner!
Well, I'm not going to complain, it is one of my favourite times of the year, having a young family makes it rather enjoyable. I love the look on my girls faces Christmas morning.

I love Christmas traditions.
Putting up the tree, sending greeting cards, gatherings of friends & family, etc.
And........ I always have my Christmas Bunting up!

This year I have some designs that are favourites with buyers that have been done a few years running & some new designs. I'll continue to make more in the next month or two.
