I've been living in an old run down house in Browning St, West End with my partner Julian for a few years now. With the exception of one boarding house, our place is the only residential house remaining on the block. The other houses were converted into shops and other businesses long ago. Our house was probably built aroundand other than a few dodgy additions like the built in veranda, it doesn't look like a whole lot of maintenance has been carried out on this place EVER. The exterior needs a serious coat of paint, the gutters need replacing, the list goes on. Anyway, the exciting thing is, it's all happening! The house is undergoing a serious makeover. Now here's the really cool part - to top it off I have been given the all clear to turn the front half into my very own shoppe!
The shop will be called 'Nook' and will feature handmade, vintage & eco goods. I'm hoping to be open within 2-3 months. No way am I setting an actual date just yet. We still have the builders here and painters are yet to come!
