"Bringing the Past into the Present and giving it a Future"
That's the motto of my friends' new shop,
You may have noticed a couple of weeks back I was a bit quiet on the posting.
I was working here doing a little painting, cleaning etc.
That's my bottom you see holding the ladder.
So the guys are taking things that would otherwise be on the scrap heap or at best on a very secondary market, and are turning them into individual designer pieces.
Both of them are artists and so talented. The stock has had a complete turnover in just two weeks so they are obviously filling a niche there.
(Top: is my favourite ottoman made from recycled? or is that up-cycled woollen rugs. So cosy for winter)
How clever is this awesome childrens' desk made from an old telephone table!

"beauty" from a series of redesigned dining chairs.

Like a floral rock star from behind.
This is the front view. Can you see the appliqued dragonfly and lady beetle? Divine.
Stock is updated (and sold) all the time.
They are the exclusive stockists of Suburban Jubilee cards of art and also stock hand made works by Hideyo

They are located at
207 Invermay Rd, Invermay, Tasmania 7250
Tues to Saturday.


  1. WOW - what a fabulous adventure your friends have embarked on. Their furniture is amazing. Ooo... I wish I was in tassie just now. Maybe one day... and when I get there I will certainly be popping in!

  2. Oh Tanya what a fab looking shop, love that colour.
    Their upcycled pieces are wonderful, not surprised they've turned all their stock over in a fortnight.
    Might be dangerous having such clever, talented friends.........
    Hear you might be in for a wet weekend, hope you enjoy it anyway....

  3. what a great idea, I will definately check it out next time I am out that way! How exciting for your friends that they have done so well already.

  4. Hi Tanya I have enjoyed just browsing through some of your latest posts. I am now your newest follower..please feel free to visit me if you want to sometime. I have enjoyed the diversity of the topics you've posted about.

  5. What a great way to recycle with style! It must be a fun place to hang out and get inspired .. and purchase something .. one of a kind.

  6. Cliff sure has got an amazing collection - I fancy that old telephone tabel as an art easel!
    And the floral rockstar chair is just like the old chairs my Nan used to have (just sort of a scratchy vinyl that your legs always stuck too).
