Ever leave a place with the warm and fuzzies. Mamma gets that feeling every time from The Mustard Tree in Lilydale. This is an op shop with a difference with the local community at its heart. Beautifully styled with custom signage and decorated with up-cycled furnishings, there are little treasures EVERYWHERE. The globe chandler, the tie lamp shade and the table numbers for the cafe - so quirky and fun - send the kids off to see if they can spot the barbie in a blender!! The shop doubles as a cafe and some of the locals tell Mamma they choose to come here for coffee almost everyday. There is a secure spot for the kids to play too while you quickly flick through the racks for a bargain.
Mamma's special mention: The staff and volunteers here LOVE what they do and often run community projects and classes from this space. Keep your eye on their Facebook page for the latest happenings and current Saturday trading hours.
