One Fine Day

Last Sunday, on the way from Coffs Harbour to Queensland, we stopped at the lovely little town of Bangalow for a break. We had heard good things about Bangalow and it’s such a delightful spot, nestled in the hills not far from Byron Bay. We ate some lunch, rummaged about in the shops and generally had a lovely time, but we were especially charmed by One Fine Day Handmade. I know it’s a big call, but One Fine Day is quite possibly the cutest shop of all time (aside from other favourites Bob Boutique and Lark of course!) The shelves are bursting with adorable things handmade by clever people, and the displays are just gorgeous. We could have spent the whole afternoon there! Unfortunately we had to get back on the road, but we left with two lovely patchwork cushions made from vintage materials, by Moose and Bird, and copy of Extra Curricular magazine tucked neatly under our arms. We can’t wait to visit One Fine Day again, next time we are road tripping through!

    I would find it so hard to leave that little shop. It looks like it is fully of lovliness.

    That shop looks absolutely fantastic. It reminds me of a place I visited in Chicago called Renegade Handmade, which has since closed. They still do a Renegade Craft Fair all year, though!

    Look a lot like Crafty Wonderland in Portland, OR. Another town you guys would totally be into.

      We would LOVE to visit Portland one day! If we ever make it over to America it is definitely at the top of our list of places to see! πŸ™‚

      Hello! The two patchwork cushions we bought were actually made by you! Unfortunately I didn’t realise you had a blog when I put this post together. It’s a bit late now but, just in case anyone else stumbles across this post, I’m going to pop a link to you in now! x
