Today I stopped in at Studio 52 in Blackheath here in the Blue Mountains. This exciting retail store showcases work by Mountains designers and is still a bit of a hidden gem. I had to take in some more of my cards and wanted to see what's new.
I have my range of cards and postcards there as well as my kara smith stuff - handbags and dresses out of vintage fabric. The store is really something special and needs to be part of your Mountains itinerary.

Studio 52 is home to a contemporary retail store that showcases the unique work of local designer/makers and host to a collection of hands-on creative workshops for children.
Studio 52 is an initiative of Hannah Surtees and Emma Kelly, both Blackheath mums who are impassioned about contemporary design and the importance of learning through the creative process. British-born and trained, Hannah brings seventeen years industry experience as a graphic designer whilst Emma has been channeling her creativity into teaching primary children for over ten years.
"We are passionate about design and devoted to the local community, our retail store presents local Blue Mountains design and provides the opportunity for the designer/makers to share their knowledge and skills."
"Our online store covers a few items that we stock instore but there will always be new and bespoke things that we can't put up, so its always worth a visit up to Blackheath now and again and besides, there's some great places for coffee and there's that quite nice view at the end of the street!"
Fabulous finds right here in the Mountains...
