I'm really excited for my friend Kaz (Kazuyo) who I met as a regular stall holder at the West End markets in Davies Park. Each Saturday we would be set up by 5.30 in the morning and enjoy the atmosphere of the market while lovely souls would confirm that we were on the right path of the 'handmade life' by commenting, admiring and buying our products. Kaz would often sell out of her handbags by 1oam!!! ..and no wonder - they are simply beautiful. Kaz uses vintage kimono fabric sourced on her many trips home to Japan.
Anyway, the reason I'm so excited for Kaz is..... one of her dreams has come to fruition..she is opening a shop in Paddington called 'Kazuyo's Collection'. The shop is a collection of Japanese arts, crafts & teas...as well as her popular handbags!
'Kazuyo's Collection' opens this Friday June19 at 10am and for the next 2 weeks Kaz will serve a variety of FREE teas as part of her 'tea tasting' in the small Japanese cafe that is at the entrance to her shop. Please go along and support Kaz and enjoy a cup of tea. She will appreciate your feedback so don't be shy to let her know what you think. :)
