Thanks for dropping by

A big thank you to everyone who dropped by the Lillipilli Lane stall at Mathilda's on the weekend and for visiting us online. It was great to meet you and a pleasure to have such an interest in Lillipilli Lane. We also appreciated the valuable feedback on our wares and especially our new skirt 'Calico Dreams'.

A real highlight was being next to the Princess Ratbag stall - these women rock. If you haven't seen their wares - you really do have to check out their website...Princess Ratbag (the things little girls dreams are made of).

So what did we do the day after the huge weekend, took a day off to relax in our little piece of Paradise : )
