Urban Walkabout Pop-up Shop – Supporting Melbourne Retailers

Have you heard of Urban Walkabout? I only just discovered them. They publish a series of free guides to destinations around Sydney, Melbourne and other Australian cities. The fab guides are printed, come with an illustrated map and  cover everything from boutiques and galleries to cafes, bars and restaurants in different locations around each city. After their super success in Sydney these guys are expanding their reach in Melbourne. You can check them out here.

This year, Urban Walkabout have launched an online pop-up shop featuring some beautiful pieces from local Melbourne designers and retailers. Some of the pieces are one of a kind and have only ever been available for purchase in stores.

The guys at Urban-Walkabout are passionate about all things local and describe their store as,  “a curated collection of unique product from local producers in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, some of which may never have been available online before”.

Unfortunately the store  is only open for a few more days (until the 20th) but has some beautiful pieces from local retailers including Melbourne based Clementine’s, Third Drawer Down and Signed & Numbered.  Below are some of my favourites! Shipping to Melbourne can take up to 7 days but give them a call and they will do their best to hurry it up for you.

Happy last minute Christmas shopping!
