New year, new everything if the last couple of weeks are anything to go by and pretty sure you’re as excited as we are to dive in.
The latest news is fresh out of Nobby’s and it’s both supportive of all the local legends around these parts and perfect if you’re in the market for pretty new things.
It’s called Made Collective and it’s a collaborative space stocking a slew of local makers and designers wares and it’s highly likely you’re going to buy absolutely everything.
The store can be found on Lavarack Road amongst all the local cafes and restaurants you already love.
It’s all white with concrete floors and a delightful backdrop for the stunning range of homewares, clothing, art and skincare you’ll find inside.
Starting with some absolutely breathtaking artwork by Michael Stiegler whose image of Kate Moss has been transformed into a piece that takes up the entire back wall and a skateboard at the front, both of which we would like in our house please.
There’s also beautiful, handcrafted womenswear by Kahlo Kahlo, skincare by Cannabella, journals and mindfulness cards by Pass Around the Smile, DIY clay packs by Be My Clay Date and swimwear by Salty Swimwear and Local Luxe Swim.
Not to mention sustainably made furniture by Athmae Studio, zodiac prints by La Terra Press, the sweetest baby and childrenswear by Soldier and Stone and Willow and Ko and bespoke homewares by P and R Styling.
So all of the incredible things by mindful, sustainable makers that you’re going to want in your life.
Made Collective is having their official launch party on Thursday 14th January and you’re invited to enjoy discounts, raffles and to meet all the makers showcased within the store.
You might make a few like-minded friends while you’re at it too.
The newbie is the perfect addition to the Coast and Nobby’s in particular and we are big fans of creating spaces to showcase all the world-class creatives in this city of ours.
Pop in and give them some love.
RIP your savings.
