I spent an exhausting day yesterday, visiting a number of small country towns to try and sell Greeves St. project products for work. I met a number of really enthusiastic shop owners who will order our Christmas range later in the year. I had to eat, of course, so found myself having an all day breakfast in the picturesque and cosy town of Trentham at a cafe called Chaplins. Was okay but I found it quite overpriced for something I could do better myself at home. $5-00 for a side of avocado and plain old generic brand of GF toast. Friendly people though.
Then, a few doors down, I met the lovely Sharon – part owner of Kuki, a brand new home wares and fashion store.
Seriously sexy store. Take a look inside:
From there on to Kyneton to a lovely store called Echidna where the shop owner made a direct purchase. It is a really beautiful and ethical store. They mostly design woolen products and get them made fair trade overseas.
From there onto Maldon, Woodend and Castlemaine, where I stayed with my oldest friend (she is not old – I have known her forever) in her lovely new home in the hills near Castlemaine. I was made to feel like an absolute precious guest. Thank you Janey. X
