It’s getting a little trickier and takes quite a bit more planning, but Millie and I still enjoy regular mum and daughter shopping trips.
Ok, I enjoy it and my money is almost always spent on the tiniest member of the house, but we have happily navigated our way around some of Melbourne’s best shopping precincts.
But a Monday tour through Highpoint Shopping Centre in Maribyrnong showed me there was lots to keep both Millie and I entertained as well as some shops where we could each find some treats to carry home.
It’s often one of the first brands mums seek out for their newborns because of the soft tones, sweet prints and organic cotton softness. The label’s rapid rise in popularity (Prince George had Sapling in his newborn wardrobe!) is due to the hard work and beautiful, approachable nature of designer and owner Peta Stinson.
How long has Sapling Child been making bubs look (even more) adorable? We are about to celebrate our third year of being in this amazing business.
Picture this – the perfect nursery or play room for your little one, the centrepiece being some original artwork hanging on the wall designed by Melbourne mum-of-three Kylie Jackson. If you haven’t seen these cute and colourful “wall art for small fry” prints, then have a peek. Picture perfect.
Name & business: Kylie Jackson, WallFry
What do you create? I create art for children’s spaces. We have a range of bold, modern prints and offer customers the option to customise their artwork to co-ordinate with their space.
When did you start? I first started painting artwork for children back in 2008 when I was pregnant with my first child. We were living in Dubai and couldn’t find anything suitable so created my own. Not long after that WallFry was born and it has grown from there to become hugely popular.
