Weekend of Op Shopping, Design and Magical Wonder

Tuesday, July 6, 2010

A few exciting things are happening this week, which I am sure I will be writing about early next.

Firstly, it is my first excursion as a Tour Guide for Melbourne Op Shop Tours on Saturday. More details on my previous post. I will be taking fellow op shoppers on one of my regular second hand shopping routes from Cheltenham to Frankston. There are still three places remaining if anyone is keen to join in with Saturday's Recycled Fashion shopping extravaganza, you can book by clicking on the logo below:

Secondly, thanks to fashion blogger and fellow Melbournite Fashion Hayley's recent blog competition, I have won a ticket to Tim Burton, The Exhibition at ACMI in Melbourne and shall be attending the exhibition this Sunday. Thank you Hayley, I cant wait for this.

Tim Burton, the creative genius behind Edward Scissorhands, Batman and Alice in Wonderland.

An Australian exclusive, Tim Burton: The Exhibition is a landmark exhibition charting Tim Burton's creative vision and process from his earliest work to the spectacular Alice in Wonderland.

Curated in direct collaboration with Burton, the exhibition brings together over 700 works, including paintings, drawings, puppets, costumes, storyboards and film. Discover the elements of gothic fantasy, dark humour and motifs that characterise Burton's work as director, concept artist, illustrator and photographer.

And lastly, this Sunday also marks a special day for the twice yearly event The Melbourne Design Market

The market is held twice a year in July and December, drawing in over 10,000 visitors to its location; Melbourne’s Federation Square which is transformed for each occasion into a design show that features the latest in fashion, homewares, furniture, lighting and so much more.

Meet the designers, enjoy fine food and coffee, and be part of the Melbourne Design Market’s own style in fostering and promoting design.

It’s open to everyone and it’s FREE.

I shall be keeping an eye out for any designers showcasing products made from recycled and upcycled materials.

When: Sunday, 11 July 2010, 10:00am - 5:00pm
Where: Federation Square, Level 3, Federation Square Carpark, Cnr Flinders Street & Swanston Street, Melbourne
