Handmade gifts that give twice
Christmas is coming, and for those with littlies, it's worth a trip to this truly 'little shop'. Head there for hand made and hand knitted goodies. Toys galore, and the prices are amazingly cheap. The best part, all profits go to Sydney Eye Hospital and Sydney Hospital.

These adorable mice are a mere $3!

Anyone with kids, and without a knitter in the family, you will know it's virtually impossible to buy a hand knitted jumper these days. If you have a baby shower coming up, head to the Little Shop and select a baby jacket - not only will you be the envy of the shower for the gift that no one's seen before, but you will be giving the baby something it may never see the likes of again. A hand knit. If you're really deceptive, you could pretend you made it yourself!

The Little Shop is run by volunteers (Friends of Sydney Hospital) and they also run a monthly craft stall on the second Friday of the month from 9.30am. The shop itself is tucked away in the former gatehouse of the hospital, but you can't miss the sign on the gate, just past il Porcellino.

In a time when we buy so much mass produced junk, it's lovely to know you can still buy hand crafted toys and clothes, and the best part, it all goes to a good cause.
