Tractor Home‘s amazing new premises in Mebourne’s CBD! Love those crocheted porcelain bowls…!?  Amazing town.

Vintage Industrial pieces sourced and restored by Mike Munro

Cute Tractor Home textiles in the ‘linen cupboard’.

Check out Tractor Home‘s amazing new premises in Mebourne’s CBD!  After many years running her incredible African import and wholesale company from home, Mandy Munro finally took the plunge late last year, and, with the help of husband Mike and their grown-up kids, moved EVERYTHING into this incredible two-level brick warehouse not far from the Queen Victoria Market in the city.  WOW talk about a big move!

Mandy has such an incredible eye for handcrafted product, and always supports something new!  Her current stock comprises furniture, timberware,  basketware, porcelain, textiles, jewellery and decorative accessories, whilst husband Mike also uses the space – he sources and trades in vintage and industrial furniture.  This fabulous new space really allows Mandy’s vibrant and varied product range to be showcased super effectively.  (I couldn’t leave without doing a little shopping of my own I must admit!)

Sadly, as Tractor Home is a wholesale business, this inspiring workspace and warehouse is not open to the public… :(   IHOWEVER, if you’re on the hunt for some of the items you see here, you could try some of Tractor Homes’s longest standing retailers such as After, Safari Living, and Husk.  AND of course if you are a potential stockist I am sure Mandy would love to hear from you!

Huge thanks once again to Mandy for having me last week for a very extended visit!  Next week we’ll introduce two of the Munros’ super clever kids, each immersed in their own inspired creative businesses…. Aggh over-achieving family alert.  Stay tuned!

    So many gorgeous things that remind me so much of home! Especially the wire wall art – I owned some exactly the same! Any chance of an online shop with shipping to NZ? I would certainly be a regular!
