The gorgeous Moppit is perfectly positioned on a gorgeous strip of old school shops in Clifton Hill’s main strip. It is the most wonderful treasure trove of fashionable clothing, homewares and other ‘stuff’ for kids.
The creative soul behind Moppit is Melissa, a lover of fashion, interiors, colour, pretty things, sequins and graphic design. One step into her shop and it’s evident Melissa has chosen every item with love and care.
Moppit first opened in 2006 just up the road in Northcote, but relocated to its current beautiful location some four years ago.
Devoted customers know they can depend on Moppit for a range of gifts, clothing, toys, decor, hair accessories, puzzles, nappy bags, wall stickers, shoes and more. They even have the fabulous Incy Interiors cots – fabulous!
Their stylish fashion includes brands such as Littlehorn, Minti, Chalk and Cheese, Rock your baby, Alphabet Soup, Well spotted, Gypsy kids, Coco and Ginger, esp no1., Nunu, Peggy, Acorn, Havoc denim, Frankie and Lola, Toshi hats. They also stock a cool range of little people’s shoes and have had enormous success with the Saltwater Sandals (Melissa was Melbourne’s first stockist of the brand). Since identifying Saltwater Melissa has also included Feiyue, See kai Run, and Tip toey joey into her coveted collection of shoe brands.
But one of the more recent must-haves is the Schier Shoe desert boot. Individually hand made in Swakopmund, Nambia, the boots are made from lightweight and super soft kudu leather. No surprises that Moppit is the only Australian supplier of this cool shoe – Melissa knows how to spot a trend before anyone else.
Moppit’s range of gifts includes wooden toys, educational games, knitted animal toys, handmade softies, crayons and pencils, buntings. We especially love The Little Sparrow, which features multi-colour polka dot wraps, toys and crochet granny blankets. Mums don’t miss out either with Emily Green necklaces, Meow girl jewellery and Happy socks for adults.
Moppit has a reputation for high quality long-lasting clothes that fit well and that kids love to wear. They offer lots of Australian made products not available anywhere else, which we always love.
Melissa has a wonderful eye for finding the next hot brand and is constantly searching locally and internationally. You can always be sure to find something handmade and unique at Moppit.
