Daylesford Delight

Owners of Daylesford Store "Can't Think Straight" - Miriam & Tiana
Tempting treats at Can't Think Straight, Daylesford
Some months back my friend Fe came to visit and we spent a lovely day together at Daylesford, outside of Melbourne. Facials, coffee, scones, lunch and shopping, not necessarily in that order, were all on the cards....nice pampering to give to two preggy ladies, sans older children in tow!

While wandering the main street we came across a new store, "Can't think straight", run by the lovely Mim and her business partner Tiana, stocking work by local artists and supporting the local GLBTIQ communities. There is a fantastic array of work stocked there with a focus on recycling and upcycling. And now a selection of Mainichi recycled leather necklaces is available in store too!

If you are visiting Daylesford do pop in, and don't forget our other favourite shop, Mimosa, a few doors away on Vincent Street, which has been a long time stockist of Mainichi recycled leather brooches, and makers and stockists of the Babies Only range of organic skin care products (love the Baby bum cream and Mum's belly oil!).

While exploring Daylesford I can also recommend:
"Lark" behind the main street (gorgeous, everything in there, take your credit card)
"Cliffy's Emporium" for lunch, coffee or some indulgent deli goods
"The Mill Market" for hours of browsing of reasonably priced secondhand furniture, bric a brac and vintage clothing
"Acqua Viva" in nearby Hepburn Springs, for all kinds of pampering, especially if you prefer a small, intimate and quiet setting.
