Modern Times Pop-up Shop II

Earlier this month I dropped into the opening of Modern Times Pop-up Shop 2. Following the sucess of Modern Times last year in St Kilda, Amy and Joel have popped up again in a spacious vacant shop on Smith Street in Collingwood. There are mid-century original Danish leather sofas, arm chairs, Teak wall-units and hand crafted wooden coffee tables on display. The showroom is stylized with bright and quirky retro inspired accessories by local indi designers.

    Oh Elle, I just saw your guest post at My Poppet and your tree is fabulous!!
    My kids have been begging for a christmakkah tree. We even grow them. But I just had no idea how to decorate it without it looking too…Christmassy.
    I am so bookmarking this for next year.
