For the few people that haven't found the wonderful Melbourne based blog thedesignfiles.net click, run, skip do whatever it takes to get there!
Lucy Feagins has shone a beautiful spot light on Melbourne for us, (this little ladies black book must be the envy of many!) From studio and shop visits Lucy has also managed to sweet talk the Melbourne folk into showing off their homes too- how lucky we are.
With a lovely format and a daily dose of design news and interviews we heart Lucy and her blog....and we had the pleasure of having her stop by our store and you can check it out here... thedesignfiles.net/2009/08/new-things-at-five-boroughs.html

Creative types have been waiting for the follow up to the 'Handmade in Melbourne' publication since its first outing in late 2006.
With a few changes since then, the launch was a crowd pleaser, just two weeks ago and now we have welcomed the book onto our very own shelves.
This time around the covers have filled out to fit 200 Melbourne makers, to include ceramics, chocolates, textiles, lighting, furniture, beer and us! There are so many makers everyone will find their niche is surly covered.
It comes complete with maker and business listings to help buyers find their perfect item.
We'll, you've found us now so pop in and grab yourselves a copy for the coffee table.

Finally the days are getting longer, and this means less layers (soon). Not only have we received a wonderful new delivery of bags and purses from Mingus Designs we have also got our hot little hands on their new hemp and tencel scarves. With new designs like 'lovebirds', 'deer herds' and 'antelopes' they will certainly add some difference to any outfit!
They are available in cream, chocolate and olive.
