But you know already that you can keep up to date with all things Little Shop Of on facebook & Twitter yeah?
So whats new in store and online?

For all the young dudes from the makers of Frankie.

Oh hi!

Hello Peeps!

My name is Justine and I work here at The Little Shop of Handmade MOST Saturdays. Now I've been working here since March this year and have known Bec for a couple of years. I used to publish mixtapezine and also write a personal blog called 62cherry.

So I'm going to start writing semi regularly over here. I thought I'd start with TWO of my favorite pieces in store at the mo!

These WICKED ampersand purses have just arrived in store and a really good friend of mine is getting it for her birthday present!

Cute badges from Kearnsie -- not sure which one is my favourite.

I'm going to leave you with 5 reasons I love working in the shop:
** Sweet small runs of handmade goodness
** CUTE customers
** Listening to great music -- currently playing Kitty Daisy & Lewis & Pulp
** I can blog in between serving customers
** I get some kid free time

OK! That's all from me this week.

Customise your own shoes

This neato  tutorial arrived in my inbox this morning courtesy Burda Style website and I so want  to give this a go - I am rather partial to wearing flatties, however what I am not partial too is the fashion dictators choosing for me what colours I can wear on my feet - I don't think it's highly inappropriate to wear electric blue shoes when only pastels are in fashion . So now my problem is solved and luckily k-mart have a great plain pair of flats for $10 that I can give this a go on.  Here is the link to the full tutorial
