New Directions – Crest Hermitage Art & Book Store – Talbot, Victoria

Some changes happening at the store, rolling out for a new look come spring. Bushmother brand will be spreading their wings to an online only shop, with eco style offerings and handmade items, including canvas bags and totes, quality soaps, and preserves. Further details will be provided once it is opened. Many customers have loved this brand, and it is due to time contraints the maker has decided to simplify everything, so stay tuned. Lynda Vater Weaving have gone into their own shop space in Dunolly, named “Yellow Dog Vintage & Design” 155A Broadway, Dunolly Vic. 3472. Lynda can be contacted on mobile 0418 875 453 for any queries regarding her beautiful woven designs. She carries a great range of vintage along with her own art, and is open weekends. The tiny shop space at Talbot in Fyffe Street Emporium will give itself over to a pared down tea and reading theme, with a collaboration between Crest Hermitage and Corridor Gallery. More details to come! Thanks for all the lovely customers who have supported in difficult times.

Quality Handmades – Bushmother Brand – Book/Art Bags

A lovely local brand, Bushmother focuses on sustainable and practical lifestyle products, catering to those who care about the environment. This brand produces handmade book bags, reversible for two fashion colourways in one, and includes a stainless steel drink bottle. The bag rolls up in luggage, perfect to take away as an extra, is a great companion on art walks or book/coffee creative dates, large enough to hold art finds and your favourite book of the moment. Each bag is 100% cotton canvas and is fully hand washable (or cold machine washable), and easiest to iron while damp. Tumble drying not recommended, due to shrinkage. Designed to fade, it will have that great look of a long time favourite accessory. Crest Hermitage Art & Book Store is open weekends at Fyffe Street Talbot, off Scandinavian Crescent, just behind the wonderful eatery Talbot Provedore. Can offer mail order if required, leave a message on the site and we’ll be back to you.
