we went up to mildura for xmas & thanks to a gift voucher i received (thanks a&k!), i found myself in an awesome design shop called fine & sunny. only a year or so old, it's run by two sisters shell and annie, who have put together a fabulous selection of design goods, with a focus on local australian design.. and who very kindly let me take photos while i was testing out my skills with my new camera. (never had a fancy pants SLR with manual focus before, but gawd do i love it!) anyways, i had a good old chat with the lovely shell & we agreed we like a lot of similar things. it's my kind of shop. i love the industrial touch their shop furniture adds to everything too. how great is that bank of lockers behind the counter? apparently it's from one of the local high schools and every now & then they get a customer doing a double take when they see it! i really wish i did this post sooner because now i can't remember all the treasures they stock, but these are the ones i do remember.. mud ceramics, naomi murrell prints & jewellery, my mother mabel resin & plywood jewellery, frankie books, beautiful pillowcases from sunday morning designs, skinny laminx teatowels & salt water sandals.
