Art Bazaar... Will you be there?

Coco's Closet is very excited to be a stall holder at the Art Bazaar inCivic Park, Newcastle this December 4 from 9am til 3pm. I think it's going to be ACE!! You should really come if you're around and get some homemade goodness for Christmas.

I can't believe Coco's Closet AKA my happy place is over 12 months old. 14 months to be exact. It's lovely to be bricks and mortar, and well the space, it is kinda like coming home, I've come full circle. Almost 10 years ago the space that houses Coco's Closet was Rourke and Henry, a boy and his bear, my first fledgling store with my mum named after my son and his trusty bear. It's interesting now to have some of the same customers that we had then, almost like extended family. Rourke was six months old when we opened here in shop 1/64 Wharf St, was home to all things funky, stylish and groovy...... we grew and moved on, developed new ranges, ideas and the space has had a few occupants in the last few years but just over 14 months ago when it was empty and Miss Muffet was getting ready to jump into big school I decided it was time to return home to my favourite little space. The signature red door of Rourke and Henry had remained the same.... so Mackenzie and I took to the space...paint brushes in hand - pink of course, hot pink, white and still the red door and transformed the old, into our new love. Coco's Closet..... indie crafts and recycled wares, handmade gifts and beautiful, interesting and loved.

It's a funny little place to live... plus we have lollies and we love lollies.....we love to chat too, so feel free to pop your head in, we love chatting oh and colouring , thats my bestest thing to do.

  2. Gifts are used to express our emotions and they let the other person know what we think about him/her.
