HOT: Lark Store, 94 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Lark Store has been synonymous with cute homewares and party supplies since it opened its shopfront in Daylesford four years ago. They’ve now closed their Daylesford store and have decided to take the show on the road at various pop up locations, starting with a residency in Fitzroy until February 2014. At Lark Fitzroy you’ll […]

HOT: Japanese Afternoon Tea, Hihou, Level 1, 1 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

Hihou’s limited edition Japanese Afternoon tea represents all that I love about the food scene in Melbourne. A hard-to-find, hidden situation (walk through Nama Nama from Spring Street or ring the doorbell on the unmarked black door on Flinders Lane). An urban location with a scenic view of one of Melbourne’s beloved green pockets. And […]

HOT: Country Women’s Association of Victoria State Fair, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2013, 3 Lansell Rd, Toorak

The Country Women’s Association is a not-for-profit organisation which provides support for women, primarily in rural and remote areas of Australia.

HOT: Put Victoria on Your Table Cellar Door and Artisan Market, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2013, Como House & Garden, Corner Williams Rd & Lechlade Ave, South Yarra

Melbourne’s unpredictable weather has turned on the sunshine this weekend – perfect weather for outdoor eating and drinking.

Put Victoria On Your Table: Cellar Door and Artisan Market is a […]

HOT: The Cool House, Rokeby Studios, 1/90-94 Rokeby St, Collingwood

The Cool Hunter is a website/newsletter that does exactly that – hunts out the cool, unique and unusual in design, travel, art, food, fashion and events from all around the world and collects them all in one drool-worthy portal. So it makes sense that founder Bill Tikos has decided to bring the website to life […]

HOT: Crop at Lightly Showroom, 3 Glasshouse Rd, Collingwood

Melbourne loves pop up design shops and this weekend there are three worth your attention – The Design Files Open House,  The Cool House and Crop at Lightly Showroom. Not to mention the popular twice-yearly Melbourne Design Market at Federation Square. Make that four! Design studio Lightly have opened up their two-level warehouse and showroom to 25 […]

HOT: Paris to Provence Festival, Como House & Garden, Cnr Williams Road & Lechlade Avenue, South Yarra

Paris to Provence, Melbourne’s favourite festival celebrating all things French, is back in the bucolic surrounds of National Trust’s Como House this weekend. There’s market stalls, music, food and festivities and the festival gets bigger and better every year (this is its third year). Here are my highlights: Grab some charcuterie, cheese and a baguette […]

HOT: The Finders Keepers, Royal Exhibition Building, 9 Nicholson St, Carlton

The fabulous twice-yearly market The Finders Keepers is back in Melbourne today! Inside the vaulted halls of the beautiful Royal Exhibition Building you will find a delightful array of independent and local artists and artisans – cute, handmade, whimsical, colourful is the name of the game.  There’s so much to see that it’s actually a […]

HOT: The SuperCool, Great Dane Loading Dock, Corner of Napier St & Johnston Sts, Fitzroy

How is it possible for The SuperCool to be so…well, cool? The mobile emporium has just landed in the loading dock of the fantastic Great Dane furniture store (a great use of unused space if I’ve ever heard one). The curated collection of homewares, stationery, furnishings, accessories and general design-goodness has basically brought to life […]

HOT: SO:ME Space, South Melbourne Market, 322-326 Coventry St, South Melbourne

South Melbourne Market has moved out the dollar stores and moved in some hip wares. Under the big shed they’ve created a space for small shops and pop up sites called SO:ME Space. It’s filled with clothing, accessories, artwork and bikes – a fun place to browse before or after your market grocery shopping. Some […]
