Dear Gladys,



I've been busting to tell this little secret for an entire week now.



There was little bit of a hint yesterday... 





I've been hiding away for the last week, searching through the stash looking for vintage loveliness, cutting fabric, and stitching it together to create some wonderful new pieces that I delivered to a shop thismorning.




I now have my first ever retail stockist in Melbourne - Dear Gladys,




Can you tell that I'm just ever so slightly super excited?




Dear Gladys, is a Vintage and Contemporary Boutique which stocks beautiful and unique clothing and accessories.
 



All profits from Dear Gladys, support Fitted for Work.
You can find the shop at 296 High St, Northcote.





You can also find a brand new batch of brooches in pretty summertime colours....
 


Just in time for a spot of Christmas Shopping!

I am thinking of not following your blog anymore, Cam. I am suffering from bag envy and I just don't know that I can hide any new bags from Mr Button. It's making me green with envy and I just don't do green very well! Lisa.
