Is your Mum a vintage, new or handmade type of gal?

Top Photo: Beautiful new ceramic planters from Melbourne duo Angus&Celeste hang beside our vintage parrot, Harriet (our lovely parrot is now SOLD).

At the manufactory we are constantly on the look out for items that show the beauty of age or handmade toil, yet are useful to our modern lives too. This can often be harder to do than it may sound, especially during Mother's Day.

So what can we offer your Mum this Mother's Day? 

Maybe she loves the colour green? We have new, vintage and handmade items in colors ranging from mint to eau de nil to teal.

Or maybe pink is more her style? Mix pastel pinks, musks, fluorescent pinks and blackcurrant together for a very feminine gift.

How about gifts in gorgeous blue ranging from duck egg, to navy, baby blue and aqua.

We even have some sunny citrus coloured items with yellow, orange and creams.

And finally for a dramatic gift, we have blacks, ebony and grey stock in many textures and tones.

So drop in and choose your Mum, or someone special, a beautiful thoughtful present that will make her home that bit more special. 

Remember we also offer free gift wrapping for most items (we might struggle to wrap a vintage ladder or industrial lockers). Our current wrapping uses salvaged pianola scrolls that have been so well played they are not good enough to sell as wall hangings, but they are just perfect as giftwrap.

NOTE: the manufactory will be closed on Anzac Day, Thursday 25 April, until Tuesday 30 April when we re-open at 10am.
