pop to the shops
You might be looking for a gift, looking for a new outfit or simply looking for an excuse to get out of the house for an afternoon - Mamma has reccommendations for when you might want to pop to the shops!
Shop small. Shop Local. The Village is a pretty vibrant spot with everything that a community shopping strip could ever need. From the drycleaners, barbers, beauticians and florists. The whole retail community is warm and welcoming.
Mamma is currently in that tricky time. The time that the baby is still needing two naps a day and we have that three hour gap that you have to fit EVERYTHING in before the afternoon snooze arrives. This week, with a list of errands and a number of gifts to buy, Mamma and the little ones hit Heathmont Village.
This shop is blooming marvellous! Edward & I is your one stop shop for all things floral and you will be blown away by the colour.
The brothers that know their parsnips from their turnips and know how to pick a good melon!

The store where the makers and shakers of the hills show of their best!

You have to love a market that you can visit seven days a week. Rail, hail or shine!
