Christmas is already here? WHAT!
Look, I know you know that we have all your Christmas Gifts sorted. But this year we’ve got extra fun stuff happening to help ease the Christmas stresses and have a little fun shopping.
There’s 114 cubers here this month, and they have all recently restocked so their cubes are jampacked full of goodies for you. If you’re coming along to our shopping night on the 6th December you’ll be able to enjoy 10% off most cubes & there will also be yummy bubbly refreshments to keep you standing while shopping.
We’ve also got a great raffle happening between the 6th December & the 24th December where you can win prizes donated by out cubers. There’s almost $1,000 worth of prizes in this giveaway, more on that below. Entry is free, you get one chance per $50 spent in the emporium so SPEND BIG AND WIN BIG I say!
And of course… what would Christmas be without the annual CATSHIBITION featuring cat art by several cat crazy Melbourne artists!
See you sooooooon!
We’ve got two shows for this month!
29 November 2018 we opened COLLAGE Featuring works from Danielle Macri, Michelle Durán, Patricia Denis, Caroline O’Brien & Maudie Osborne.
In a world that increasingly feels like it is being stuck together with paste, we need some sweet relief! For this show, we’ve sourced artists who work in the medium of collage, and asked them to create works in whatever theme they desire.
13 December 2018 we open the Third Annual CATShibition featuring works from 11 cat crazy Melbourne artists. This show isn’t complicated. It is cat art for cat fans. That’s it. It’s good. Come!
We’re winding down workshops for the rest of the year, with exception of one fun workshop happening just before Christmas where you’ll be able to create your own handmade wrapping paper with direction and stamps created by one of our cubers Jade Lees-Pavey. Buy tickets here (only $5!).
Christmas shopping night!
For the first time we will be hosting a VIP shopping night exclusive for our newsletter & social media friends! Register to come along (bring a friend) and enjoy drinks, tunes & giveaways as well as some interactive craft areas where you can make your own wrapping paper and gift tags.
Our cubers have banded together to form an amazing Christmas giveaway with almost $1,000 in prizes which will be drawn on Christmas Eve! Check out the prizes over here.
How do you enter? It’s easy! Just come to our shopping night or shop with us between 6th December & 24 December and you’ll recieve a ticket for every $50 you spend!
