Megan Morton stylist extraordinaire loves our store!

We were lucky enough to have the wonderful Megan Morton (responsible for the three books Homelove, Things I Love, and I Love My Room) in our store last week and she very kindly commented on her Facebook page "Drill Hall, best shop in Australia".  A very big call but we will take the compliment nonetheless! 
We first met Megan a few years ago in our store, at which point she bought this gorgeous Chesterfield couch.  It was used in photo shoots for Alannah Hill, can you believe?  It really suited the look of Alannah Hill clothing with the faded salmon silk upholstery.  I would love to have it back, really!
And what did Megan find on this visit?  Well, these wonderfully vintage ice skates which I have admired myself for a little while.  Nice spotting, Megan.

Our stores and our favourite haunts in the latest Inside Out magazine!

We were very excited to see the article in the September issue of Inside Out magazine featuring the Agrarian Kitchen, the cooking school just ten minutes from our stores.

Titled "a weekend with The Agrarian Kitchen" the story tells how founders Rodney and Severine developed the concept of the now famous cooking school as well as how now, 6 years on they spend their time when they are not cooking (or tending to their farm!).

And proudly our two stores, The Drill Hall Emporium and Flywheel are both on their agenda!  Tristan, Rodney and Severine's son is captured in the Drill Hall holding a large ball of linen twine.

Also a favourite pitstop is Cheeky Little Place, the cafe with the best coffee in New Norfolk not to mention the best bread, Redland's stoneground sourdough.  Pigeon Hole and Sweet Envy in Hobart are also favourite stops for Rodney and Severine. The funny thing is, these are all our favourite haunts as well!

To see our own little suggestions of where to go when one is Tasmania, visit here.  After all, the local always knows best.

Until next time,
