Tucked down a side street off busy Fern Tree Gully Road, Our Little Caravan is a vintage and craft boutique collective store. An abundance of handmade goods from over 40 artisans fill the store, and casual craft classes are also held in-store and in "Mabel" the vintage caravan (especially for children) in the back garden.

Learn traditional and modern craft techniques, such as working with polymer clay, crochet, soy wax candle making and quilting. Birthday parties are available for children in Mabel.

Mabel the Caravan is a perfect location for birthday parties. "To some," Owner Christina admits, "the thought of a backyard birthday party is terrifying… But I love the simplicity that comes with it. I guess that's why I enjoy every party held in My Little Caravan."

School holidays include a variety of drop in opportunities and registered classes. Every morning that Our Little Caravan is open during the school holidays, parents are welcome to bring their child(ren) along at a time that suits, between 10am-12pm (at time of publication) and stay while they make a glass tiled pendant, a fabric covered button, and have some fun with washi tape. Suits all ages (three to adult). Cost: $10 per child; add morning tea $5 (caravan gingerbread and a drink).

Polymer clay, mini gardens, mini baskets and bangles and pendants; Our Little Caravan is as creative as it is comfy, and options and supplies may change with the seasons: An autumn look, a Christmassy winter scene, or a tropical oasis may await your special touch to turn it into a bespoke keepsake for yourself, a teacher, a special friend, parent, or sibling.
