My awesome friend, Liz, suspects the glass vase has been glass blown by an artist because the lip of the vase is irregular in its finish. Love this piece! And who wouldn’t adore those cds? Love op-shops!

Trial New Product: Up-cycled Jeans Baskets

Greeves St.

Jeans Pockets 1Jeans Pockets

Greeves St. is launching the sewing and small business program for our clients this Friday. We hope some of the women St Kilda Gatehouse works with will come along and have heaps of fun. One of the four wonderful volunteers, who will help keep the production of Greeves St. products flowing, has come up with this awesome product (above). We are all loving the little ethical up-cycled denim baskets. What do you think?

Not sure if we are going to make it, but our crowd funder is still running for another 26 days. To learn more go to: www.letsact.com.au/projects/the-greeves-st-project/

The Greeves St. Project crowd funder is nearly half way through and we are nearly half way there. A massive thanks to everyone who has pledged already. This week we are offering everyone who pledges $80-00, one of the St Kilda Gatehouse Swallow Tees, in your choice of size, cut and colour. Go to http://greevesst.bigcartel.com/ to check out your preference. You can message me once you know!

I was watching the LetsAct site featuring the Greeves St. Project, and the figures were beginning to creep up, and then pass $500, nearly a tenth of the target amount, when the site refreshed and a new figure of $2001 appeared. I could not believe it. We are now over a third of the way there with 54 days to go.

If we reach our target we will purchase quality sewing, craft and small business equipment for participants in the program, including:
