The Maker LJ Struthers Made in Hobart

 

Very much supporting the #shoplocal vibe with clothes from local designer lj strutthers not just labeled as made in Tasmania but Made In Hobart. Talk about niching it down!

Also stocking the lj junior range that includes the  cutest little pippin shorts that makes you want to run out and have a baby immediately if you don’t already have one.
