The Friendship Tree

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great weekend. I had a lovely time catching up with some friends over lunch at Watt Restaurant on Sunday. Everyone is now well at our place, so I hope to have a much better week than I did last week.

I wanted to introduce you today to two lovely sisters Kim and Donna and their beautiful store The Friendship Tree, which is located at 272 High Street in Northcote, Melbourne.

a sneaky peek inside the store

The Friendship Tree is a store dedicated to all things handmade. They stock wonderful creations from artisans and designers from all over Australia, of which I am lucky enough to be counted!

If you live locally and are able to pop in you will find a range of toys, gifts, homeware, and art ..... and while you're there say hi to Kim and Donna for me!

If you are not able to pop in (like me) I suggest you take a peek at their delightful store online. It's so wonderful to know that there are people like Kim and Donna in this world who share a passion for supporting independent artists and the handmade market!

  4. I'm speechless!!! As the creator of the wool acorn you see next to my name, I first want to say "Thank you" for showing me such an enchanting site. I had no idea anyone had a shop with so much felted work.

    And I want to thank those at The Friendship Tree for supporting the handmade movement. It must take forever to browse through your beautiful shop. Because, literally.... people must stop to look at every single tiny little thing!!!
