We've been busy little beavers getting our new shop ready at  SO:ME Space  in the South Melbourne Market. Building, painting, sourcing, lifting, unpacking, merchandising...... you name it. A small glimpse into renovating a house.... ewwk!  Below are some behind the scene shots of our shop in progress.

We open Friday 29 July and we would love it if you came by and said hi... checked us out and if you're lucky you might win some great prizes! We've got a massive spinning wheel (price is right style!) and if you spend over $50 with us from Friday 29 June to Sunday 1 July you get to take a spin of the wheel which has heaps of great prizes to be won.

General Opening Hours - (same days as the market) 

Wednesday 8am - 4pm Friday 8am - 5pm Saturday 8am - 4pm Sunday 8am - 4pm

Location -  SO:ME Space at South Melbourne Markets Enter from the corner of Cecil & York Street (near

claypots) and walk left into SO:ME space.

The empty space before we began building.

After building, the pegboard wall painted "resplendent" yellow.... who comes up with these paint names anyway?

Our manifesto wall designed by the creative crew at Studio Alto.

A view not quite finished - our manifesto wall (see those air bubbles... we weren't happy about that.. so we tore it down and did it again.. see below) The blackboard wall (not quite finished) and then our yellow pegboard wall....

Our lightbox with our awesome logo by Studio Alto lights up for the first time!

Our awesome vintage mechanics workbench is our new counter!

After some serious scrapping of our first attempt at the manifesto wall... we quite liked how it looked when aged....

Some geometic goodness - new stock for our SuperCool shop.

Our new shower curtain/ wall hanging / room divider by Izola... we'll be selling these in the new shop as well.

We've got heaps of vintage sewing bobbins (not many of the French sewing bobbins left in a set of 3) but heaps of new odd sized bobbins as well.

Our best selling doorknobs - displayed to see all the colours and prints available.

Excited to introduce more cool printed and colourful crockery....

We've also got lots of new Cuban and Swedish Cigar boxes - we love the prints and patterns.

Vintage chemistry and apothecary bottles from Japan in heaps of different sizes.

Some typographic and patterned goodness in a corner of the shop.

Well it was a big drive up (9.5 hours plus pit stops to admire the various truck stops & toilets along the way!) in our new van we've called "Paco" ( find out the back story here ) to Sydney last week.

Thanks to ALL the SuperCool customers who came by, said hi, shopped with us and then tweeted, facebooked, instagramed & emailed us afterwards!

Thanks to The Finders Keepers for providing such a great industrial space like Carriageworks possible and to all our creative neighbours! Here are some snapshots (taken hastily by me as we were about to open!) to show you our set up. We'll be back to visit soon Sydney!

It's all about the Pin (Pinterest that is!)

Imagine a world where your tearsheets from inspirational mags, screenshots from blogs and sharing these ideas and moodboards with others could merge? Imagine not having to pay for this service?

Imagine you kept on being told by creative friends - "You'll get addicted to this... seriously...!" Imagine this place where creativity met organisation..... apparently its called Pinterest!

In a world where social media and technology connection seems to overwhelm our lives, it took us a while to realise that Pinterest was worth the extra time in our day....

If only we had fallen in love sooner! So TheSuperCool is officially on Pinterest - we're quite obsessed... repinning like crazy and finding new inspirational images and blogs that are just begging to be pinned and shared.

If you're already on Pinterest - follow us here ... If you're not - believe me.. join the fun. This is awesome and much more visually stimulating and fun compared to twitter & facebook (in our humble opinion!)
