No one could say that Melbourne has a shortage of cute little shops that cater to the handmade, the whimsical and the alternative to all things mass made. After all, us Melbournians are a creative and entrepreneurial lot.
Unfortunately for us south of the river dwellers, much of this hand crafted industry has tended to be centred on the north side. Davies and Son's arrival in Hampton has put paid to that, with a gorgeous selection of independent and handmade goodness that would put any Fitzroy or Brunswick store to shame.
There's a great selection of our new season's handknits knits in store now, and word has it that the Hampton Street locals are rugging up in woolen handknits like never before.
With Hampton Street home to some of the bayside area's best cafes and interesting little stores, there's never been a better time for a visit.
