Brunswick St, Vic

Visiting Brunswick St has made my melbourne trip more interesting.

Thanks to Janice, who recommended me to visit Zetta Florence

“Oh yes, in melbourne, u HAVE HAVE HAVE TO GO TO BRUNSWICK ST!!! YOU WILL LOVE THERE! And go to a shop called Zetta Florence (http://www.zettaflorence.com.au/). YOU WILL DIE IN THERE OF HAPPINESS!!! I LOVE THAT SHOP! THere’s a couple of special paper shops there as well!” -Janice

Thanks to Sam, who accompanied me ‘ber-brunswick-ing’ (quoting Sam :P).

ta-da! Zetta Florence…

There are more to what you’ll find on their website. You really need to visit the shop in person!

There are things like various collections of vintage postcards, themed calendars, beautiful hardcover journals, delicated wrapping papers, designer envelopes, prints, various patterned folders, etc.

Everything in there was so intriguing, so facinating! I kept browsing at the same items over and over again. Had a hard time deciding if i should get something due to the expensive prices. Of course then, it was irresistable!

 In the end I got myself a set of vintage postcards. pictures link: www.flickr.com/gracelikeriver

The entire Brunswick St is just so bursting with creativeness and inspiration! Plus…there’s a variety of cafes, bars, cool spots to hang out at.
YOU WILL DIE IN THERE OF HAPPINESS!!! Janice 😛 
At the end of our ‘ber-Brunswick-ing’, both of us were just so mind-loaded with ideas and inspirations.
Hope i’ll discover more cool places like Brunswick St.
“I shall visit my new favourite spot in Melbourne again.” – happy thoughts 🙂
