PUT ON SOME SOCKS & PAY IT FORWARD…
Some of our most cherished stores in Melbourne's CBD and surrounding suburbs are struggling to hang on to their beautiful businesses. Shutdowns mean closed doors, no foot traffic and it takes a long time to restore visitation to the city and shopping strips.
Scroll down to see a small selection of products (including some 'pay it forward socks') from one of our favourites - Clementine's, who don't have an online shop. 100% of the proceeds of your order will be forwarded to Clementine's - Melanie will process and post the item ASAP.
As soon as you are able, we encourage you to visit Clementines to experience the huge range of artisan products - made right here in Victoria - or email Melanie at email@example.com
for a personal video shopping tour of her beautiful store.
Clementine's - 7 Degraves Street, Melbourne
