Window Shopping - July Edition

Window shopping is one of those activities that we can't get enough of at Ginny & Jude's...we just love coming up with lists of MUST HAVE items!

Here are our very favourites for July...

Peter Pan collar, delightful print - we've just put in an order!
This is just puts a whole new spin on the humble quilt!
from American artist Riki Zarris
 Fantastic colours in this piece

from American ceramicist Cynthia Vardhan
How to choose? They're all so beautiful...

These are made to order, AND you can choose what colour cashmere you'd prefer!

from the awesomely talented Portland artist Juliana Swaney

Every print of hers is a delight - I love the girls floral necklace!

These are just lovely. Yet another favourite thing from Urban Outfitters!

For when one dresses as Joan from Mad Men

WINTERLAND!! Get your skates on...

Carriageworks + skating + markets = WINTERLAND!
Truth be told, we at Ginny & Jude are not very adept skaters. In fact, we are more likely to be clutching to the edge for dear life rather than daintily twirling across the ice with ease.
But that's by the by, because there's a LOT more to Winterland than an ice-rink.
From clothes to fairyfloss, flowers to antiques - there's an eclectic array of items for sale at the carefully curated markets which sit just alongside the ice.
And with stalls on rotation there's different products on show every week!
Week Three - July 22-24 - promises to be quite fabulous.
We are absolutely thrilled to be flinging open our cupboards of collectibles and releasing some of our treasured collection of textiles and antiquities to the public.
Beautiful kimonos and obis dating back to the 1920s will hang aside delightful clothes from the 1950s-60s; bundles of vintage fabrics and cute little colour coded button cards are sure to inspire.
All of these pieces will complement our complete range of warm winter hand-knitted accessories, jewellery and a selection of headpieces.

Thursday July 22nd and Friday July 23rd 6-10pm, Saturday 24th 11-6pm
Carriageworks, 245 Wilson St, Eveleigh
We visited on the first week of the markets and were quite taken with the atmosphere and the delightful look of the space!
Whilst sipping our mulled wine we bought...
from the super sweet Mechelle B

And some favourites to look out for in week 3...
for super cute clothes
for a sweet posy of flowers
to celebrate the silly within

for a quick shot of adorable
for the vintage kimonos and the winter warmers
YAY! See you soon

doing a little dance with funny face ...

I'm sure your Monday will get better if you were to dance around as shown here by Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face...

Quite possibly our favourite dance routine of all time!

And then this little piggie went to market

By gee and gosh, we have been ever so busy...
A few weeks back we jetted up the highway in our beautiful powder green 1972 Toyota Corona Jackie to do the Finders Keepers markets in Brisbane.

What a beautiful site the Old Museum is - with tiered manicured gardens and a balcony, we were quite besotted by it. The weather remained a balmy 20 degrees for both days and as the sun shone brightly and we realised there was no need for wearing a cardigan let alone a coat, we couldn't help but smile broadly!

 We had a thoroughly lovely time chatting to all the lovely Brisbane people who visited our stall...
And felt very happy indeed to have the delightful ladies from Leeloo

next door to have a giggle with in the moments of down time...
Not to mention regular lovely visits from our friends (and fellow stall holders) from

All us lucky folk in Studio One were serenaded by an elusive busking DJ (who in actual fact is Sydney-based deejay and broadcaster Jack Shit) who spun his amazing collection of antique 78rpm records and kept us all feeling gorgeous and lively each day...
