On the weekend, we finally managed to get over to Richmond for a spot of shopping along Bridge Rd, a lazy brunch (or as lazy as brunch can be with two kids in tow!) and a trip over to the old Channel Nine television studios where a series of pop-up events and installations has been running for the month of March, all with a seriously funky design vibe. Commissioned by Lend Lease, (the firm in charge of redeveloping the site into apartments and townhouses while retaining the heritage feel), The Richmond Weekender is a cultural event celebrating the unique vibe of the area and includes a cinema and cafe (with seating created from old wooden pallets) and a homemakers market. I loved this hessian covered wall with pockets for growing flowers - would be cheap and easy to replicate at home if you have a ugly fence or wall!
There is only one more weekend to visit The Richmond Weekender, head over to their website for details.
