I always feel good about supporting local business whether it be online or from a real brick and mortar shop front, I think that justifies my guilt for my little shopping sprees I have every so often. I also dislike getting bitten by nasty exchange rates and so on.
So I was very pleased when I came across a great local design store that stocks two of my favorite things... Flensted Mobiles and Marimekko products. Make is situated in Carlton, Melbourne but they also have a very impressive online store. I purchased a few items (at a great price) with a flat rate of $5 for local delivery and my goodies arrived 2 days later straight to my door! It would have cost me more to drive!!! I am one very content shopper, ooh I love a bargain. Go check out their line up of Australian and Scandinavian design products.
By the way, I truly love the explosive colours and gargantuan floral motifs used in many of the Marimekko fabric designs. The above interior reminds me of my parents kitchen when I was a little lass. We had the sensory overload Marimekko curtains and bright yellow laminated table cloth. Wicked!
