Event: Two Golden Hours

Two Golden Hours is a gorgeous shopping event that my friend Lesley alerted me to. Hosted by the super-creative sisters Kristina Powrie (oldyarns) and Georgina Hobson (perpetual one), the pop-up shop will be held over the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

It promises all sorts of magical delights that you won't find elsewhere including vintage and reclaimed wares with an exclusive range of products handmade by local artisans. The pop-up store will also include a cafe serving refreshments.

I love the sentiment that Kristina and Georgina express about their collaboration, "two golden hours draws on their sense for finding uncommon beauty in vintage and handmade objects and their talent for styling and staging memorable events." Sounds like a fabulous excuse to head to Yandina for a few hours to immerse yourself in history and beauty.

Here are the details:

Sunday 12 and Monday 13 June 2011 (10am to 4pm daily)
684 North Arm-Yandina Creek Road
Yandina Creek, QLD

Special guests include many Bondville favourites:
paper boat press: designer and author Kylie Johnson creates beautiful handmade ceramics, giftware and has published two books of poetry.
Kylie Gartside: Kylie is a contemporary jeweller and designer from Brisbane working in recycled silver, all her ranges tell a story going beyond conventional adornment.
loose leaf paper: eco design, stationery, jewellery and photography by Louise Lindgren in Brisbane. (you may know Louise from ABCD meetups.)
Little Laundry: simple, chic dresses, tops and skirts in natural cottons by Sunshine Coast local, Leanne Ruegg.
oldyarns.: utility tote bags made using reclaimed linens and textiles by Brisbane-based designer Kristina Powrie.

You can find more info on the Two Golden Hours website. And if you go, please let me know what fabulous goodies you snared!
