They sell mixtape!


What a wicked book store that also has a gallery space upstairs which mixtape may use sometime in the future...

The ambience of the store is incredible. They have a CRAFT section. Some of the titles they have in stock at the moment are:
**Alternacrafts by Jessica Vitkus
**More Softies : 22 new friends for you to sew and crochet
**Tiny yarn animals : amigurumi friends to make and enjoy by Tamie Snow
**Printing by Hand : a modern guide to printing with handmade stamps, stencils, and silk screens by Lena Corwin
**Handmade in Melbourne by Jan Phyland & Janet De Silva
**Making Stuff : an alternative craft book (Black Dog Publishing)
**ReadyMade (Thames & Hudson)
**Handmade Nation : the rise of DIY, Art, Craft and Design by Faythe Levine & Cortney Heimerl
**Adorn : New Jewellery
**Over & Over : a catalogue of hand-drawn patterns by Mike Perry
There is no way you could not find something you would want to buy, be it a zine! (They stock mixtape zine! YAY.), kids book, fiction or maybe a design book.
The store is owned by Susie & Rob a couple who also work in the store. They are all for supporting local artists and I get the feeling they would go to any lengths to get you what you were after if they didn’t have it in stock already. You know I have been known to buy quite a bit on amazon, but when I find a store that oozes love I’m gonna go there to talk to someone and see the book in person. NOTHING beats personalized service, it’s worth paying for!
