b.Gentle Factory.

Last weekend hubby and l... along with about 20,000 other people visited the usually quaint and quiet township of Bunninyong which was the place to be, to see the national cycling championships. The atmosphere was pumping....the whole town really stepped up for the occasion....opening all the shops, cafes and hotels making us visitors feel more than welcome....this combined with perfect weather and big name cyclists assured the biggest crowd the nationals had ever seen.

Here on the main street of the town l mossied into b.Gentle Factory and met SELENA (the owner and founder) who graciously allowed me to snap some pics of her gorgeous shop and wares to share with you. 

What first hits you is the light filled space and how pretty everything is.
Selena (and her mum) make the soaps locally....many are shaped into perfectly formed cupcakes and cake slices that also smell good enough to eat.

There's also a vintage vibe going on...both in styling and packaging. This wall (pic left) is set out much like an olde worlde lolly shop.

A range of kids clothing and toys adds diversity and interest.

 Quilts and cushions in ruffles and patchwork.....something for everyone.
 All beautifully coordinated and styled.

To finish off the post....... l trawled pinterest for some themed inspiration.
Ballet and tutu cookies.

Then thought l'd add some awesome kids spaces. via pinterest.
