Myself and Bec at the opening.

Last Thursday was the official opening of my friend Bec’s store in Newtown, Little Big Tween. Or LBT for short.

You may recognise the name from a post I did a month or so back about a new wholesaler.

Yes, harrysdesk accessories are available at LBT.

In the comments of the post I said I had more exciting news associated with this venture…. and now all can be revealed.

LBT looking all gorgeous for the opening.

Yes! ......it's red carpet

A couple of months ago Bec asked me if I could help out with her clothing design drawings and fabric specs. Yes! what I trained to do all those years ago.

I gingerly agreed.

….and I have enjoyed it a lot.

The excited supporters.

The sketching, dreaming and designing, to Bec’s specifications, has been nothing short of a pleasure.

Fitting it in around an already packed to the brim family life was tricky and some mornings I could be found up before the sun (quite an achievement for a non-morning person like myself) busily sketching and colouring and sticking. Tim and the girls have been fantastic, making all the extra hours possible. We had a few hairy moments…

I will let you know once the winter collection arrives…. as that is the season I have been working on!

At this point I am hoping I can continue to help Bec out as I can….learn lots from her ‘make it happen, with a smile on your face’ attitude…. and keep harrysdesk rolling along and growing into the new year.

This may explain why the blog has been a little removed lately. Sorry…. and thanks for sticking around.

Therese (who works in the shop) and Bec before the crowd arrives.

The clothing in the store now, is wonderful and seriously worth a look.

If you cannot get to Newtown you can see it here. Or become a friend of LBT on facebook here.

 

 

For any reader in Canberra ... you will find LBT at Matilda's Markets this Sunday.

New to King Street Newtown.

You can now get harrysdesk brooches and hair accessories from LBT King Street Newtown.

If you have children size 6 to 14 this shop is well worth a look. Great appropriately styled clothes for this age group.

Due to the one off nature of harrysdesk products you will need to pop into the store to see them…. 541 (south) King Street, Newtown walking towards St Peter’s Station….. yes! the groovy end of King Street.

For everything else, or if you are a non-local,  you can visit the website.
