Howdy all, what a fortnight it’s been! Not much sleep, lots of lifting, painting, cutting and dragging stuff around… but we’re almost in.

There isn’t much of a story to tell about the move, it went ok, we got rained on, people helped out, we ate pizza…just a regular moving in story I guess. So rather than rattle on with words, I’ll upload some pics from my iPhone that I’ve been snapping along the way to try to document the formation of d+b as much as I can.


beautiful reclaimed flooring from Urban Salvage + Blackbutt planks for the jewellers desks.


some of the 108 tongue and groove shelves we cut up…


a whole pile of shelf supports that Dani drilled and countersunk


the big moving night… Dani staining the shelves indoors, Nick unloading the truck in the rain.


Some of the bounty I have purchased from Dennis… like a pirate’s treasure!


A bit more… so many lasts, and these are JUST THE WOMEN’S LASTS! more men’s at home.


Jewellers desk #1. With a few areas left ambiguous so Dani can work out what works best.


The new room as it stands today. Messy, awkward, but filling up fast!

… and before I go, I should remind you all to drop in to the Design Made Trade show at the exhibition buildings today or tomorrow. Lots of local talent on display, including a whole bunch of Craft Victoria superstar crafters showing their wares and working on site – you can even see Emma Greenwood lasting up some shoes right there in front of you! I’ll be there this afternoon as a tourist, so say hi.

Listening to : Wu Tang!! 36 Chambers of phat beats.
