What a treasure trove of creativity, community and sustainable living I discovered when I visited Lyttleton Stores! It is worth taking the time to appreciate all the generosity, skill and innovation that goes into this unique venture.
Lyttleton Stores is a not for profit cooperative that operates an Atelier (for local handmade art and crafts), a Preserve (workshop space), a Pantree (for organic fresh produce), a Kitchen (for homemade products) and a Garden (organic, of course).
The Lyttleton Stores website http://www.lyttletonstores.com.au/ is a also feast of information:
- there is a Garden Blog with loads of helpful tips
- interesting interviews with artists and artisans
- a range of workshops to book that include: life drawing, seed propagation, spoon carving, sour dough baking, fermentation and preserving, arm knitting and bee keeping!
I am super impressed with all that Lyttleton Stores has to offer and especially because it ticks my big three: Creativity, Community and Simple Living!
You can also get a taste of Lyttleton Stores by visiting their stall at Magpie Markets in Lawson on the third Sunday of each month. There is also instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lyttletonstores/?hl=en
Lyttleton Stores is easy to find at 1 Badgery Crescent, Lawson and there is plenty of parking nearby.
