Made the trip
If you live in Brisbane and is anything like me and LOVE to make, create and imagine. Then it is well worth the trip to http://www.reversegarbage.com.au/.
Reverse Garbage is a not-for-profit workers' co-operative that collects high quality industrial discards, diverting them from landfill to sell them at low cost to the general public.
The only bad thing I did was not bring my car, I caught the train. So had to buy things that could fit into my green bag. I bought some carpet squares for 50cents each and some whiteboard felt (for now)
I had a lovely day with a very dear friend of mine re discovering West End and discovering the West End Markets. If your after fruit and veggies, vegetarian foods, and some retro/vintage clothing, then West End is for you. I also checked out http://nook-shop.blogspot.com/ and spotted some lovely handmade items from my favourite blogs! Nook is totally worth a look aswell. Oh and finally when your hungry from walking around and exploring what West End has to offer, have lunch at Urge Burger..Yum yum yum!!
I am currently working on buntings. I made a NSW bunting for a friend of mine and her mum wants a Queenslander one. Its looking good. Although I am a little bias, I am a Queenslander after all. I am planning to have it done by the end of tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
