|Mehdi and Korreen|
This morning two friends and I took a very mini road trip out to Te Awanga to visit a gorgeous vintage store recently discovered through the "grapevine". The charming owners, Mehdi and Korreen have a wonderful eye and have filled this huge space with an amazing collection of eclectic vintage stuff, mainly found in France. Have a look at their Facebook page, click HERE and do call first as they will tell you their opening days and welcome you very warmly.
And what did I come home with? Two treasures but only one can be shown (see top) as the other is a present for someone who sometimes reads this blog.
Sorry the photos are not in the order I wanted and as I have little patience for this sort of thing, I just can't go back and sort it!

I have been making more pincushions, bigger this time with lambswool fill and soft felt bottoms, each patchwork top is finished with a vintage button. Along with some of my collection of vintage buttons and other Sweet Mary handmades, they will be for sale at the October Craft&Design Market next to Hawthorne Coffee Shop in Havelock North this Saturday from 9am - 1pm.
On the same day, Pop will be open 10-4 so pop along to the village this weekend and check us out.
