Oh Hello Moss & Burrows! Look at you all cute and snug up the top of Raglan Street.
Moss & Burrows has to be one of the cutest shops this side of Cuteville. And with it comes the cutest story. It's the classic Daylesford love story... and a long distance love story at that.
Once upon a time, Emma and Nigel Taylor lived busy lives in Fremantle WA. They worked Big Important Serious Jobs. Occasionally they'd visit Victoria on holiday, and drive though Daylesford and marvel at its gorgeousness.
Before long, Daylesford had worked its magic on Emma and Nigel. And like many before them, (Jesse and I included!) they'd had fallen for Daylesford, hard.
Soon, 3360 kilometres away from Big Important Serious Jobs, this cute little town became their new home. Awww.
Emma and Nigel then fell in love with a tiny rickety cottage with a big bright blue door at 22 Raglan Street.... and the rest... as they say, is history.
Emma's dream of opening a teeny cottage boutique stocking independent clothing brands, locally crafted and beautifully designed gorgeousness, was finally realised. Yay! Emma decked out her cottage with vintage bits and amazing and well curated industrial finds, painted those wonky walls five times and named it Moss & Burrows, a tribute to this town and all its snug wintery gorgeousness.
Recently Moss & Burrows has opened a teeny cafe in store:
The Grumpy Farmer Canteen.
The Grumpy Farmer Canteen has unique handmade benches built with reclaimed bits and bobs by a local sculptor Kaya Storm. Coffee is by Bendigo's awesome Brewhouse Coffee Roasters and cakes and pastries are by local cake legend Tara Kiste Cake Emporium. Emma is just about to fire up the old-skool jaffle maker and pots of soup for winter lunches too.
It's warm, it's cosy, it's snug and it's a cute story. Moss & Burrows is indeed one of our Lovely Locals.
