A little trip into the city...

This weekend we (by we I mean Nick, our 2 boys and me) spent the day in the city. Did I ever mention how much I love our city? Well, yesterday was one of those days that confirms for me why Melbourne rules. Yes, I said rules. Sad huh. Anyway, so we planned to take the boys into Fed Square, maybe see the Tim Burton Exhibition or maybe just wander the gallery looking at really big paintings. We were making over way there when Nick mentioned a shop he wanted to see on Little Lonsdale Street called Design Dispensary. So after a little walk, a detour at a lovely bike shop who pumped up our nearly flat pram tyre (no charge - so nice!) and nearly being blown away by a very windy wind, we arrived on the door step of Design Dispensary. What a fab store. If you love unique, beautifully crafted designer wares, this is the place for you.

We were greeted by a very lovely store owner and we equally pleased when our 4 year old played happily with the Remember Paolo interactive game (see pics!) that was out to be played with (excellent idea!). He was so fascinated with this gorgeous game from Germany brand Remember Products that we  were able to have a good sticky peak in the shop! Yippee.

Back into the gale force wind for another detour in to Outre Gallery and then a quick bite to eat down a marvelous Melbourne laneway and finally on to the gallery at Fed Square...... by this time it was nearly 5pm (closing time) oops. I guess we'll have to go back another day........
