A New Beginning
Yes, it's true! After 6 years on the market trail, we have found a permanent space to house our business(es).
Our new shop space 'Hattie and the Wolf' is a creative hub, full of wonder and carefully selected products that will delight. We source our ranges from independent makers, designers and manufacturers from Australia and abroad, to bring you a carefully curated collection of products including fresh flowers, locally blended teas, clothing, jewellery, creams and lotions, napery, toys, rugs and throws, bags and accessories.
We also offer small businesses the opportunity to hire a "pop up' space within our store, an exciting concept and a first for Ballarat in its current format.
Our May businesses include:
Made by Me's Christine French is the maker behind this little startup business. Christine makes glass cabochons jewellery using upcycled and found objects including flowers, leaves and items from nature. The Made by Me range includes earrings, pendants and hair clips.
