m.a.d. make a difference sustainble art

m.a.d. make a differencem.a.d. make a difference

Visited the Sustainable Art + Design Centre in Newtown today. They had a diverse range of colourful, hand-crafted items made from recycled materials. It's a great place to find that unique gift for someone or to find some cool jewellery, clothing, bag, artwork, or card for yourself. Definitely worth a visit.

It's at: 55 Enmore Rd, Newtown, Sydney 2042, ph:(02)9557 3411, f:(02)9557 3021

Open: Wed+Fri: 11-5.30pm, Thurs: 11-7pm, Sat: 10-6pm, Sun:11-4pm, or by appointment.
