belgrave abuzz

It was wonderful to be able to celebrate the success of two new small businesses in Belgrave.

Last Friday saw the launch of the very first Th'INK Tank project at Limerence. Twice a year Limerence opens entries for the Th'INK Tank project, a competition for interested artists to submit designs to be printed on a limited run of Australian made, organic cotton t-shirts. An exhibtion of the finalists is currently on the wall at Limerence and well worth a look. The pen and ink work is just extraordinary.

Pictured left to right in front of the winning art work: Winning artist, Nina Maskiell, Cr Samantha Dunn and Limerence owners CJ Baxter and Brent Dakis.

CJ and Brent intend to run the Th'INK Tank project twice a year to provide local artisans with an opportunity for great exposure and also provide access to exciting and high quality pieces of wearable art.

On the same night owners of Through the Looking Glass, recycled book shop celebrated their first birthday with music, wine and song. I had the great pleasure of being barrel girl for the raffle draw and was delighted to pull out the names of some well known locals.

Pictured with me are business owners Sarah (left) and Margo (right). They've done a great job with their book selection and have really found their niche in the town.

Both businesses are a terrific additions to Belgrave and well worth a visit whether you be a local or a visitor.
