Meet + Greet: Bridgetown Loft

If you love to shop small, support handmade, and meet creative artists who share the same passion, then you simply must pop in and meet the lovely ladies at Bridgetown Loft. Every product in store is carefully selected, from clothing for kids and adults, to artwork, jewellery, homeware, candles, hand knits, and so much more. Today I’ve assembled a little taste of the Lofty range. Find out more here.

Bridgetown Loft Handmade Clothing, Homewares, Accessories

Located at 139a Hampton Street, Bridgetown, WA (and also selling online, with free postage Australia wide) Bridgetown Loft is nestled among a selection of independent cafes, restaurants, and other retail stores. You can spend the day browsing through racks of lovingly handmade goodies for yourself, your friends, or your little poppets, while also having the chance to meet some of the ‘faces behind the products’. This will be my first stop next time I’m in WA!

The “Lovely Lofties” are,  Karrie (mother of 3 young children and creator at Karrietree Design), Victoria (mother of 2 and creator at diddums), Angela  (mother of 3 and creator at Tangled Robin) and a brand new partner Lela Scarrot (mother of 4 and creator at Max & Iris). Bridgetown Loft stocks only quality handmade items, sourced from over 30, carefully selected, creatives and artisans throughout WA.

Young and Moodie Pozible Campaign

Here at KID independent, we love supporting handmade labels with big ideas. So with that in mind, today I’d like to share a message from our friends Craig and Narelle at Young and Moodie. These guys have just launched a Pozible campaign for their new collection of awesome kids clothing. They’re also have a bonus offer, this week only!

We are currently running a crowd funding project on Pozible.

We don’t want you to think of it as a donation, rather a pre-purchase for some of the awesome new clothes that make up this new collection. The great thing is that the pre-purchase is basically at wholesale prices! For example: A $25 pledge gets you a long sleeve tee, a discount voucher for your next order, some stickers and postage included. As the pledges go up, the rewards/discounts get bigger! All pledges are only collected if/when we reach our funding goal (fingers crossed!). Pledges start at $5. It’s easy to pledge, check out the link, follow the prompts and help guarantee yourself (and others) sweet new threads from the Young and Moodie winter 2015 line.

Our new collection includes hoodies, long sleeve tees and trackies all with the street-art influenced style that we are known for. The full range can be viewed at the Pozible site and will be available in sizes 2-8 inclusive. Of course, our classics tees and 2nd summer collection are still available (in select sizes) if you fancy that instead…

From the Young and Moodie crew.

Wednesday Whip Around...

Hi folks, it’s time for another Wednesday Whip Around… join in the fun as we zoom around the country picking up handmade treasures at every stop. One of my favourites of today’s bunch is the Felt Salad Sandwich by Odd One Out, partly because it looks so delicious, but also because it’s a fun way to teach kids all about healthy eating! Add one to your next teddy bear picnic!
