Focus on I HEART GALLERY - Jambo Chameleon's Sydney stockist

Hi there Lovlies,

3 months ago a new venture called I Heart Gallery, opened up it's Sydney doors.
It is my first stockist -outside my Etsy shop - for my crafty-wares!
Anastasia of Percival Road and I, decided to jump on board with a shared shelf.

"What is I Heart Gallery" you ask? 
Well, here's what they say about themselves:
"I Heart Gallery is essentially an indoor market bazaar and gallery. We provide the venue and the staff, you rent a space and sell your goodies. We provide a range of display options for a minimal weekly rental price and 10% commission on sales. 

The I Heart Philosophy
Half art gallery, half op shop we are a young, vibrant, unique store with a surreal sense of humour and love of the bizarre. Put together by a ragtag bunch of misfits, artists, crafters and hoarders, I Heart Gallery is FOR artists, BY artists. We understand what it means to struggle to pay for your own materials, let alone trying to pay for gallery space, a market stall or expensive consignment store as well. That is why we want to offer fellow artists a more affordable venue to showcase and sell their work. 

Our dream is to promote creativity, passion, vision and a sense of community in our little world". 

Here's what they wrote about ME on their blog:
Jambo Chameleon is run by Sally who is a textile designer and loves buttons, brads, bakers twine, doilies, carnival tickets, bingo cards, vintage sheet music, paper ephemera, textiles, baking cupcakes, colour and never growing up! Which also sounds just like us ;) lol. She loves to rescue old treasures from a fate worse than death – the dreaded landfill. Tattered and forlorn books find a re-use, re-cycle, re-vamp and re-purpose in Sallys loving care! And thank goodness for that. We love books and hate the thought of once loved treasures being tossed away when they start to fall apart. So much better to make them into something else so they can be used and loved again!

It’s hard to choose a favourite item but we are particularly enamoured of the... vintage ricrac and some of the buttons and ephemera sets are just gorgeous! Perfect for your own art, craft or scrapbooking. In fact some of the other stockists at I Heart Gallery have used items from Jambo Chameleon...to make their own work! What a small world. :D

These are some of my crafty goodies stocked there....

and now...
Here's ome of the other lovely items on offer.........

If you're in Sydney, go along and check it out.
If you have kids visit Sydney park opposite, it has an awesome bike /scooter track.
If not - yay! go shopping and eat yourself silly on King Street in Newtown,  
it's just up the road a tad.
