So anyways, today we headed down to Moffat Beach. There’s this café I’d been wanting to try – One Block Back (I’ll tell you about that next time, but #spoileralert, it was great) – and because the garbage truck hadn’t been and the wheelie bins were on the road, we had to park around the corner. Which ended up being a good thing as it meant we walked past The Urban Crafters Gang.
Here’s another spoiler – you can’t just walk past this place. It draws you in and before you know it you’re signing up for a macramé class. No, I didn’t do that, but honestly, I could have. It’s that sort of place.
I guess the easiest way to describe The Urban Crafters Gang would be to say it’s a collective of fabulous crafters. There’s restored and up-cycled furniture, wall hangings, amazing crocheted rugs and woven baskets, hand-dyed cushions, ink works and so much more.
Each crafter has what is pretty well a pop-up up store within the space – and apparently they all help out in the shop. It’s a fabulous concept that works because of the talent of the makers.
I bought this fabulous planter full of succulents that have already brightened up our outside table. Cute, hey? And just needs a spray of water every so often to keep it healthy.
I have my eye on a dragonfly, and a blue ink feather from The Gypsy Heart that I think would work perfectly in my study. I suspect it will find it’s way home over the next week or so… I was also seriously tempted by the little baskets in Colour & Chic – after all, you can’t have too many baskets, right?
Anyways, the crafters are below – with links to their facebook profiles.
You’ll find The Urban Crafters Gang at 96 Nothling St, Caloundra. It’s well worth seeking out…
The shop is open from Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm, Saturday 10am – 2pm.
