Conscious Brands

Earlier this year, Noonie + I discussed what we wanted this year "2020" to be about for our biz. We wanted to bring more CONSCIOUSNESS + CONNECTION to TheSuperCool.

As a result, we've asked some of our brands to do short video's about what they're doing to be more CONSCIOUS as a brand in relation to climate control + social responsibility.  When watching and listening to these it dawned on me how important it is to share these stories with our customers and the community. 

We had planned to launch this in March and then a lil thing called COVID happened! So we've had a slightly delayed launch for this concept! 

We figure, if you're going to buy a gift for a family member or friend or new baby etc, you'd like for your purchase to have a dual purpose (providing joy for the receiver )but also supporting a small business and the brand that made the product in the process! Hopefully this video series will help you feel like your dollar spend really does count! 

We're kicking this off with Halcyon Nights - our fave kids brand. It's seriously the CUTEST video. You just need to jump over to our instagram to watch the video. We'll also have a SAVED Instagram Highlight area for watching all of these.

Each week we'll share a new story. YAY!

We'd love your feedback on these and if you could share these with others you think might appreciate it, we would love that too!

So if you thought that the fact we opened up a new semi-permanent shop at SO:ME Space would slow down our mobile shops... you would be mistaken! We've got some pretty exciting collaborations coming up for the remainder of the year. We plan to have 1 exciting mobile shop per month alongside selling online and our new semi-permanent shop. So there's plenty of ways for you to get yourself SuperCooled!

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.

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

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.
