new crafty + handmade store in Kensington : Onabee

A lovely new store stocking handmade things, haberdashery, yarn and fabrics has just (last week) opened in Kensington, Melbourne. I met the store owner, Fiona (pictured below), at the Stitches and Craft Show - it is so lovely to see her enjoying her very own store - packed with really nice things and lots of vintage bits and pieces. Onabee also stocks Yardage Design fabric packs and bunting panels.


Onabee is located at 200 Bellair Street, Kensington - opposite the Kensington railway station.
Incase you needed another excuse to visit Kensington, Ink and Spindle are located just a couple of blocks away and are having an open studio this Saturday (10am - 1pm). Sounds like the perfect excuse to take a trip to lovely Kenso - check out the Ink & Spindle studio, do a spot of shopping (Onabee opening hours here) and then have lunch at one of the delicious cafes!
