Cute details outside the ecclectic 'Gleaners Inc'
Fab owls revamped from old kitchen utensils and found objects from Focus on Art - love, love, love!
Succulents planted in metallic blue teapots, one of my Me Old China cut-out wall plates and ceramic brooches by Septembre Vintage Ceramics
Betty Jo's studio space and workshop on-site at Gleaners Inc
Upcycled vintage fabric bags and pouches by CurlypopsGleaners Inc is a new shop run by the very lovely Liz Jones of Betty Jo fame. The cute little shop is based in an old 1950's Perruci Shirts factory and has lots of second hand, vintage, recycled, retro and kitsh treasures (very dangerous for my pocket money!) It also stocks recycled work by local designers, including Betty Jo, Curlypops, Focus on Art, Septembre Vintage Ceramics and my collection of my Me Old China wall plates.
The shop space also occupies the workshop for Liz to make her revamped brooches, clocks and jewellery from old lino. I'm super jealous as I'd love to have a studio and retail space in a 1950's factory!!
Gleaners Inc is at 2 Ballarat Street, Brunswick (just around the corner from the Mariana Hardwick building in Sparta Place, just off Sydney Road)
