Inside Poppet

Hey Folks! I thought I would give you all a peek inside the Poppet shop!
For anyone who is new to the blog you might be wondering what Poppet is all about, I shall tell you :)

Poppet is a vintage clothing store in the heart of lovey Fitzroy North, Melbourne, Australia. I sell fun vintage and retro clothing for guys and gals! I source my stock locally and from around the globe, and I like to think there is something for everyone (unless you hate vintage...but that's just crazy!)

This year I also started creating a new clothing line. Designed and produced by myself, the seasonal collections are vintage inspired and super cute. Fun frocks for fun people! Currently they are stocked exclusively at Poppet, but I'm working on getting some online shopping going for all you folks not in Melbourne.

When I'm not busy chatting to my charming customers, I'm hard at work crafting toys, jewellery and accessories to favourite has to be the crochet fruit & veg necklaces, just look how happy they are! (except the carrot, he looks vaguely evil)

So that's Poppet, if you're in Melbourne come for a visit
123 Scotchmer Street, Fitzroy North
thurs-sun 10.30-5
or if you have any questions send me an email

Panorama fun times! i totally got inspired by seeing trish hunter finds great panoramas of her house.

My new hat

Well it has finally happened, I have found the perfect black vintage hat! and it even fits my noggin, yay! I think it's safe to say that this changes everything. I feel like my life will be 110% more awesome in this hat :)
I kinda wish I was living in the 20's, a strong independent woman studying great literary works and fighting for women's rights by day, and by night driving boys wild with my outer sight charleston-ing on the dance floor....but that's just my imagination getting the better of me again, I don't even know how to Charleston....I should learn, it might come in handy one day!

This is the outfit I wore yesterday...the socks are above the knee 2 tone and I love them (they were only $8 at the clear-it Allanah Hill outlet on Brunswick street)

So that's my new hat, Huzzah!

hoot hoot!

Well crazy ol' Melbourne is at it again! It was cold, grey and rainy...not at all summery like it should be. I however love these sort of days, because it's perfect for crafting. Hoopla

I made these guys today, adorable right? these owls have been a Poppet favourite since I opened nearly 3 years ago, and I don't think I'll ever get sick of making them. My favourite part is when you put the eyes on and they completely come to life (not literally...that would be awesome though....i would have so many animal friends)
Poppet will be at the Craft Hatch market on Saturday (I'll be workin in the shop, so I'll be sending my minions...aka my lovely the market to sell my wares, yippie) you should go have a look!
