Finding Finki a home in retail land.....

Check this out.....

'Finki' is now available at 'Olive Grove'.

What's Olive Grove......
Only the best retail space for handmade fans, in our neighbourhood.
It's is run by 9 fabulous artist/crafters. Including me.....Yay.

The studio/retail space at 159 Sydney rd, Brunswick has been going strong for over 10 years situated down at the oh so funky end of Sydney Rd. They run screen printing classes and represent the handmade work of all the co-ops members.

The products created, range from huge paintings and screen printed art, to bags, kids and adult clothes, accessories, soap, stationary and more.

I handed in my work for assessment last week and lucky me, they said yes! So far I have only put a third of my range in store, including some:

bobby pins, button bracelets and bill books,

fabric covered pendants,

'Finki' art pendants,

and some of the retro tea towel covered stools.
(looking fabulous in the window)

All my goodies look really at home, and I can't wait for my first shift.
Just to be able to sit and craft, whilst surrounded by so much loveliness.......

I can't think of anything better.
