If you're looking for the perfect gift for the bike rider in your life then you could do a lot worse than take a gander at what Melbournalia have in store.
Melbournalia is a series of four fab pop-ups spread throughout the city of Melbourne. For those for whom Melbourne is not so handy, many of their goods are available from their online store which is being expanded all the time. Open until Christmas Eve Melbournalia features products designed and made in Melbourne, about Melbourne or featuring Melbourne. Its a great way to shop local while still getting some designer goodness in your gifts.
In stock are products designed specifically with bike riders in mind in addition to many of a broader appeal that riders will also be drooling over. Ron D Swan have some of their fabulous bike accessories here and there are some organic fairtrade cottom musettes that just happen to be the perfect size for your latest issue of Treadlie magazine. Treadlie Issue #5 is also availble in store.
Otto and Spike are here with their bike-motif scarves and some gorgeous picnic blankets, light enough to toss into your basket or strap onto your rack for summer bike picnics! DiPell's leather bar tape is here as well as beautiful leather satchel's by Peter Connor. There are great wall maps of Australia for planning your next big ride and books featuring every aspect of Melbourne's quirkiest histories.
