This is a fabulous shop in South Melbourne on Clarendon Street. It is stocked to the brim with stunning artworks, jewellery, books, ceramics, pillows, furniture, lamps, and much much more. And Maree Coote also stocks her "Melbourne Book" with has collected several gold Medals. You are surrounded by her artwork that is both funny and thought-provoking. I claimed a Dame Edna portrait which is priceless. She stocks many local artists work, so the selection is massive.
