Spotlight On :: "Much Loved" :: Castlemaine

{Much Loved}

This week Miss Mel shares with us her recent day trip to Castlemaine with the family. Mel stumbled upon a gorgeous children’s boutique that caters for families and she also visited a sweet local cafĂ© with homemade treats and kids activities. Sounds like it was a really fun day. Most jealous indeed! Happy reading! x

On a recent trip to Castlemaine I was lucky enough to stumble across the magical ‘Much Loved’. This beautiful store, selling kids new and pre-loved clothes, shoes, accessories and toys, is located on one of the main streets in Castlemaine.

Just six weeks young in its new location, the store is run by Kelly Bell, mother to a lovely little boy, who has a passion for fashion and children. The beautiful space is a haven for gorgeous kids clothes with activities to keep the kidlets occupied while you shop.

A cubby house, comfy couch for breast feeding mummas, toys galore and the beautiful old dog, Bella, will keep the little ones entertained while you (too easily) spend some money! Plenty of room to manoeuvre prams also takes the stress out of shopping with little ones in tow.

Not content with the quality of kids clothing available in Castlemaine, Kelly decided to start her own business, stocking a wide range of designer fashion. She hopes to expand the range to include more organic fabrics and is on a mission to clothe the kids of Castlemaine and beyond with good quality basics.

‘Much Loved’ is a pleasure to visit, with its bright colours, neatly organised clothes and shoes, cute and quirky toys and accessories. It is definitely the place to visit in Castlemaine. Kelly plans to open an online store soon, so that all the Melbourne mums can stock up on goodies without the drive.

The Hey Bambini Dining Tip while in Castlemaine.....

{Jen's Cafe}

If you’re in need of a quick coffee and bite to eat after all that shopping, then Jen’s Place down the road (85 Mostyn Street) is a good place to stop. With a stack of books, toys, pencils and paper, there is enough to keep the little ones quiet while you re-fuel. The menu is short and simple, but has tasty breakfast and lunch options for young and old. While there isn’t specifically a kids menu, kidlets are likely to find something tempting anyway. There are no other Hey Bambini features, so it’s really just a quick place to visit. The inside is quite small, so there isn’t much room for prams, but there is plenty of room on the wide footpath to park. Outdoor tables are nice if you need a bit of fresh air and sunshine.
