I am an academic and writer living in Melbourne. I love to travel and I also love writing about all the things Melbourne, regional Victoria and other parts of Australia have to offer.

A place for all your gift needs
Are you looking for that special Christmas or any-occasion gift that is a little bit different? Then you need to visit Clementine's, one of Melbourne's secret shops hidden in Degraves Street. You will see it by the bright orange Vespa which is usually parked outside and fits well into this narrow Melbourne laneway full of funky cafes and interesting, colourful shops.
You can't miss the bright orange Vespa outside of Clementine's
Despite its small size the shop offers a veritable choice of products designed, handcrafted and made in Victoria. From ceramics and stoneware, designer homewares, aprons and tea towels, travel rugs and shawls, soft toys, baby bibs and blankets, Melbourne themed coasters and place mats to candles, soaps and so much more, it's all there displayed for the buyer's choice and discerning eye.
So many lovely gifts....colourful homewares, beautifully smelling candles....
The friendly staff are happy to advise, recommend or tell you the stories of the makers and their produce. So what are you waiting for? Here is your chance to pick up something different and locally made for your friends and family from Clementine's.
