Do Re Me...

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I had a fortuitous meeting with Madeleine, the creative brain and owner of Do Re Me, a gallery/retail/studio space in Elsternwick.

I'd stumbled on it by accident a few day after it's opening last week. Got chatting to Madeline, discovered we'd actually met in my old shop, yada yada yada, mutual admiration, and now you can find My Poppet stocked at Do Re Me!

The basic store concept for Do Re Me is to maintain Product With Conscience, and to celebrate the magnificent talents of local artisans and artists who produce Homegrown, Homesewn things that make you feel good.

Madeleine says "Customers who chance upon me (or flock to my shores) will find product with difference and wonderful one-offs, and they can spend awhile instore to read the story of where things came from and why, and trace the chain back. I am also a stockist for a select range of Oxfam Fairtrade product, and plan to build a creative hub down in Horne Street, with workshops, small gallery shows, events, VIP nights, and whatever else serendipity and the community sends my way!"

The space is large and airy, and has a studio/room in the back where craft classes are planned for next year. I'm really looking forward to creating some special pieces especially for the store.
