If your wondering where I have been for the past few days, the answer is Melbourne! I went for a much needed break as well as to do some quality retail therapy. On my short trip I took along my journal to record my visit and stay in illustration (see above) and photographic form, along with a written shopping guide. I might make this into a zine when I'm done! Let me know if you would be interested in buying this too!
As well as shop all over Melbourne's CDB, China Town and Brunswick & Gertrude Streets in the Fitzroy area I went to four Exhibitions! Tim Burton & Screen Worlds at ACMI, Melbourne Museum Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition and The State Library Melbourne Shopping history exhibit; Til you Drop! I will be posting a review of each in the future.
Melbourne really is the shopping capital of Australia....sorry Sydney. They just seem to go all out on their visual merchandising and store window displays, here are some of my faves;
I was in awe of Sportsgirl Melbourne's Bourke Street Store! Loving these rainbow raindrops that were hanging from the front. Inside was also a dream with vintage tea cups hanging from the wall, a hot dog stand filled with accessories and a big postbox at the back for you to send a Sportsgirl postcard FREE to anywhere in the world!
