From the girls who brought us The Finders Keepers - Follow a brand new retail shop in Sydney

Those in the know will be aware that Sarah Thornton and Brooke Johnston, those clever girls from The Finders Keepers, have just opened a permanent shop in Sydney!  Follow is tucked away in leafy Surry Hills, and of course stocks the work of independent designer / makers and crafters from across Australia.  Lovely work ladies!

For those of us elsewhere in Australia, you'll be pleased to know that Follow also has a great little online store too (and they shop internationally if you're even further afield).  Lots of familiar finds and many new ones too... well worth a fossick for the craft-lovers out there!

For more info on Sarah and Brooke, you can revisit this interview I posted with them last year.  Such an inspiring duo...  I wonder if they still have day-jobs.  I doubt it!

Some interesting new pieces spotted in the Follow online store!  Clockwise from top left - Chalkboard garden stakes by Sydney designer Candy Stripe Cloud,  Porcelain Bangles by Erin Lightfoot, 'Feather Wing' cushion by Elkhorn, and Honeycomb enamel cluster brooch set by Megan Perkins.
