I have been absent for awhile from my little blog, the house, my daily routine...my kids! (sorry kids) working on an exciting project with my friend from eco peko. We have joined forces to open The Fremantle Eco Shop in the Fremantle Markets as a way to support each other and our own small businesses. It has been an exciting and hairy time as we find out way through the world of working parents, retail and paying for all day parking! I really tip my hat to working parents. "A constant juggle" is an understatement.
Here is a snippet of just a few of the things we are carrying along side Justine's organic clothing line and my jewellery;
Lorgie and Me - sustainable, refillable notebooks
3 Girls and a Goat- vintage storybook gift cards
Cardboard cubby - made from from recycled cardboard
Ginny and Jude - vintage men's necktie headbands
Natalie Houston - Fremantle artist
Bambu - coconut bowls
eco peko - organic cotton clothing
Robin Gage Designs - upcycled jewellery
We have also just launched an exciting eco art competition called the WoCA (Wall of Contemporary Art) masterminded by Justine. Throughout the year there will be many opportunities for people to submit their artwork. There are prizes for each round winner with the chance to win the grand prize of a trip for 2 to stay at the Bali Eco Stay. I told you it was exciting! For details on the competition and how to enter, visit here.
I love playing shop. I get my fix every other weekend rearranging everything to fit in the next exciting thing that has arrived in the mail.
Next time you are in Freo, stop by and see us. We are inside the market next to the Market Bar.
