Christmas at the manufactory

It's that time of year when the manufactory brings Christmas in-store, and I just love it!

Here's a peek at our wrapped new giftwares, glittered cards and gift tags all ready for you to take home:

We thought this year we would start a manufactory shopping list, to help ease the stress often associated with present selection.

We will add to this shopping list weekly, with his and her ideas, vintage items and handmade lovelies, so stay tuned for more present posts...

the manufactory Shopping List 

1. Presents for the little ones by Trunk & Orderly

Just in: traditional luggage handmade in Ballarat on vintage case-making machinery by Trunk & Orderly. We now stock all T&O luggage sizes: tiny lunch cases, super cute kinder cases and compact weekender suitcases. Handy, beautiful and tough.

2. Little presents for everyone by Murphy & Daughters and Zetta Florence

Add some scented bon bon soaps (handmade in Melbourne by Murphy & Daughters), or beautiful stationery by Zetta Florence to your present cupboard. 

These little gifts are great to have on hand for teachers, your neighbours and those surprise gift givers. Useful and just right. 

3. Presents for the greenthumbs 

How about some useful horticultural implements and beautifully crafted garden accessories for your gift list? 

We always have a great range on hand, mainly sourced from Brisbane-based company Heaven in Earth, The Little Veggie Patch Co. and Cote Provence (the latter are both based in Melbourne).

the manufactory also stocks fresh plants, for indoors and out, to add that green element to your home or gift giving.

Remember, too, we offer a free gift wrapping service with every purchase. So take advantage of this when you next drop in.
