Sponsor Profile - Little Sparrow

Have you heard of Little Sparrow? It's a pretty awesome place to spend some time. It is owned by my friend Shelly who is an amazingly creative and crafty lady. Not only is Little Sparrow a Steiner inspired toy store, it is choc full of beautiful organic yarn, craft and specialist Steiner books and lots of hard to get habby supplies. My idea of heaven really. <span class=
Little Sparrow has recently moved to a bigger space in Balaclava, Melbourne, with a dedicated class room for craft workshops. Check out their website for class timetables. You may even find me holding some classes there soon...

Shelly loves to support local artisans, and stocks some amazing handmade products as well as beautiful German and fair trade wooden toys. I visit a quite regularly to catch up with the lovely Pilgrim who also works there, and Emma is kept entertained in the kids play corner. Isn't that toadstool table so cute?

My most recent purchase there were a few of these amazing painted beads. I'm hoping to make a few little dolls with some pipe cleaners and fabric scraps. Watch this space.

*In the interest of full disclosure I have categorized this as a sponsor post because Little Sparrow has an ad on my side bar, but really I've been meaning to write about Little Sparrow for well over a year now. Shelly is really an amazing person who I am lucky to call a friend. She is very generous with her time and knowledge (she helped me make my first Christmas pudding) and I am embarrassed I haven't got around to telling you all about the store until now.
