I had a fun day out with Bec today..... a scrumptious lunch (we both ordered a big breakfast of course), and then we spent the afternoon checking out some lovely handmade and crafty shops.
I found this gorgeous vintage red dress at a new and very cute little shop in Yarraville named Mandrake and Willow. They stock lots of lovely vintage and handmade items.
I bought it home and teamed it one of my flower brooches....
We also found another new shopfront for The Craft Circle. They stock everything that you could ever need for all different types of felting (nothing acrylic - all pure wool). They also have hand dyed and commercially dyed felt sheets, plus books, craft kits, and sorts of lovely things. The website hasn't been updated yet but they're at 52 Williamstown Rd, Yarraville.
After all that eating and shopping and excitement, we ended the day at the gelati shop - PERFECT!
