~ I need to see colour ~



I think this sums it up. A customer came in the other day and said: " I am sick of seeing mud, brown mess, I need to see some colour!". She then went on to buy come floral clothing and accessories. She felt much better.
Over the weekend we unpacked some new stock for the shop. Here is a dose of that colour for those of you who cannot visit us in Brisbane. Hope it brings a little colour to your day.
floral dress $79 belt $29 : paper napkins $9/pack : polka dot oilcloth $18/m : cockatoo fabric $29/m

Beach Vintage flood relief is still going this week with food drops Thurs and Fri.

  6. Hell, dear! Hope you are fine! I must say I'm impressed by your courage and work in these difficult days! it's not easy to really understand what you all are going through. It's all rainy here and we had a lot of snow and ice that's gone this weekend, but it's nothing against what you've experienced!

    I wish you all the best for this week!

    Love, Solrosa

  15. Love the polka dot oil cloth!
    Love colour and I can understand the woman who came in your store. Think lots of people want colour now in Brisbane. Strange, whenever I imagine Australia, it's always colourful, joyful, always summer even, weird, how one can have a picture from a place one's never been...
    Bye,
    have a colourfilled week Simone!

  18. Hi Simone! I've been wanting to email you but I'm still having trouble getting emails through. I am offering a $15 3-month sponsorship trial and I was wondering if you'd be interested. I want to save spots for shops that I love and yours is definitely one of them.
    Have a colorful week!
