Cottage Industry

My favourite store in Australia. I know! BIG call! But, I love this place. Why? Well, it's a store after my own heart. Lots of recycled and up-cycled products. Handcrafted items made with love.This is what I loved! These beautiful pillows made from recycled souvenir linens. Just gorgeous and I found one with images of Tasmania, so well, that had to come home with me. I also found one with people on their way to work from London. Very nice.
It's easy to spot this store, as the tree out front has been lovingly dressed in lace. Pretty pretty.
Inside it's bright and colourful and just fun.
These birds were also wonderful.
These hearts are wonderful.
Lots and lots of buckets of goodies.
And the pillows I adore.
Cottage Industry: 67 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy, Victoria.
