Written in Stone
Philomena sells prints, tea towels, maps and a detailed and much-loved book on the coast.
Written in Stone is multi-disciplinary; combining nature writing, poetry, sketches and photographs that chart the 135-million year story of the Surf Coast and its geology.
Philomena takes the reader from the ochre cliffs of Torquay, where 25 million-year-old fossils can be found, past the tip of Cape Otway, where Gondwanan rivers have preserved dinosaur bones, and on towards the Twelve Apostles.
This book captures the curiosity and beauty of small moments ... of objects found on walks, collected and treasured.
Fairtrade - Handmade and Crafted
I source these marvellous baskets directly from villages in Bolga, in Ghana. These beautiful baskets have been made since the 1800s, when they used to trade them for food and supplies. Sadly, this hasn’t changed much over the years for a lot of these people. The baskets are their only source of living. All the baskets are hand-dyed with natural dyes, and the leather on the handles is sourced from the abattoirs. Now because of the virus, a lot of these people are going to find life very hard and a lot of the weavers have been put off work. Please support by buying these beautiful baskets so that when this is over I can get more and we can get them working again. Can be posted easily to any address. All hand made and hand dyed ...100% direct from the villages in Africa

Birds of the Great Ocean Road Book
Margaret lives in Aireys Inlet and has photographed over 120 local birds in their natural habitat. The photographs capture the personality of the birds and are presented beautifully. The text is engaging and accessible and loved by readers of all ages. It is one of the essential books of the Surf Coast and the go-to guide for identifying local birds. There is landscape photography interspersed with bird photos which helps make it a great souvenir or gift for travellers.
