The good news for locals is that the spirit of what I have tried to establish at my little location is going to be maintained with the new store that will be taking my place - more news to come on that soon!

Unfortunately I can't say the same for the person who decided to grab a 'five finger discount' for one of my other Little Miss designs in the shop in the last week. It is truly distressing when people steal things that have been created with so much time and love and I can only say that the bag was made filled with beautiful thoughts but walked out the door filled to the brim with bad karma.

After pounding the pavement all day it is nice to have a comfy place to stay of a night and I can thoroughly recommend Carlton Terrace if you are visiting and would like somewhere that is handy to everything but is also peaceful and relaxing. It is located parallel to Lygon St which is bad for the wasteline but is also near the Carlton Gardens where I have been having some beautiful walks on my way to check out Fitzroy etc.
I am back in Brissy tomorrow and about to head into the last 2 weeks of trading from my Morningside store which is going to be extremely, extremly, extremely sad so I am pleased I've had a chance to scout out Melbourne to reinforce the decision before the emotional farewells begin!

This Sunday is the quarterly Young Designers Market at Southbank. It is one year since the concept was launched and I have loved being involved as a stallholder. Unfortunately I will miss this weekend as I am visiting Melbourne. Above is a pic my friend Nicole of Hot Toffee took of my stall in June (at the time I didn't know it would be my last one there!). I really encourage Brisbane designers to get involved with the markets and for locals to support them. There is sure to be some wonderful things to check out - why not catch a city cat and make a day of it?
