One day about a moon ago, I walked in a shop called Made In Mullum, thinking to myself, I make stuff, I'm in mullum... 🤔
"Welcome", said the shopkeep.
"Have you been here before?", he asked.
"No", I said embarrassingly.
"I don't get out much",
"Well, we are a collective of over 15 artists, hermits, gnomes, witches and wizards who grow, build, paint and create things using our hands and by the magic of Mullumbimby we've found ourselves a home and now we're managing our very own shop on the main street of Mullum!"
"Fascinating", I said.
"What do you do?", he proceeded to ask me.
"I run a medicinal herb farm and handmake herbal, farm to face skin care", I said.
"and I guess I'd love to join your collective and stock my skincare in this shop." I continued.
"Well we don't have anyone doing skincare here, so there's a good chance you'll get in. Here, get in touch with Lally or Crystal", he said, as he handed me a card.
The rest, as they say, is history.
It's quite an incredible store to see and everyone has their own section decorated with their unique gifts and offerings, from "I ❤️ Mullum" T-shirts to Sterling Silver jewelry to leather wacky tobaccy pouches to you guessed it Farm-to-Face skincare and there's so much more.
If you're ever in mullum.. you've got to check it out to dazzle your senses, even better, come and pay me a visit and we can wig out herbnerd style or pepper me with your herbal questions on Wednesday mornings, I'm there manning the ship from 9:30 till 1:30pm, hahaha.
See you in Mullum🙌🏼
Now, I can finally say that it feels official.
I've officially gotten out of the wizard's lab/cave and i'm off on a new adventure reintegrating with society and connecting with the Mullumbimby community of artisan craftsman and craftswoman.
So much talent and creativity.
Here's to wearing another hat on this wonderful journey called life👨🏼🌾

PS. Alaya finds the tie-dyed rainbow singlets very pretty so you might just find her one day cuddled up sleeping under them with a teddy while I man the shop😍🌈
