Flinders Lane, Melbourne is thriving

On a Saturday winter’s morning, the coffee shops are packed – there’s coffee shop after coffee shop full of people having late breakfasts or brunch along Centre Place, that runs off Flinders Lane from Degraves Street. Flinders Lane, Melbourne, is one of numerous in between lanes running the length of the city. It’s reminiscent of a European city with its’ cobbles, arcades, narrowness and density of diverse old buildings. IMG_2511 IMG_2512 IMG_2513 IMG_2514 IMG_2515 IMG_2517

When you discover places like Alice Euphemia in Cathedral Arcade that not only has very edgy clothes but also great jewellery by such designers as Danielle MaugeriJulia deVille, and bracelets by artist, Kate Rohde who also shows through Edition X . But I only discovered that because I went to Tessuti fabric store and they directed me to discovering Cathedral Arcade.  IMG_2519 IMG_2520There is also the best Zambesi store between Sydney and Melbourne and also art galleries, fabulous tasty, reasonably priced eating at the revamped, CAE Services building done by Gray Puksand and numerous heritage buildings to marvel at.
