Original HandPainted Dolls Exclusive To Sydney's Markets...

Allies Attic is constantly finding new designers with some very beautiful products and there's nothing I enjoy more than a new find!

Simply love these handmade hand painted dolls from Wonderlandia

The dolls are based on the creator Amanda Coffey's own imagination and she doesn't stop there.. there's also a whole new dimension with stories surrounding her dolls from Wonderlania along with artwork for the walls as well.. Ohhh and did I mention Amanda's mother also sews? A very talented family indeed...

Seek And You Shall Find....

Walking into retail baby shops I'm constantly bombarded with blue is for boys and pink is for girls.. Whilst certainly pretty here lies exactly the reason Allies Attic was born.. and seek I did for unique beautiful products that were also original!

One of my favorite labels for boys is SOODAbub pictured on Izac my son here... I almost think Izac's whole wardrobe is SOODA.. this seasons range has everything from funky to dressy without the price tags to boot! And in between I'm not ashamed to say I shop generic for socks, singlets and extras here and there.. there's nothing wrong with mixing and matching now is there.

Now that's what I love about opportunity to be the best you can be... In becoming a mummy I also decided I wanted to use my business skills and bring genuine Australian labels to Sydney mums! No imports, No generic mass produced - just limited production beautiful local products... And in turn I also get to help mummies work from home whilst supporting their families.

Here I am a new WAHM (work at home mum).. doing something I honestly love! I'd love to hear more from you about what it is that inspires you and how you've turned it into a hobby or a career.. I know there's lots of us out there, tell me your story!
