Store + Studio
We love our local community. All of us that work at Kindling live locally and we share a real passion for our neighbourhood. There are beautiful parks (with so many excellent dogs), a plethora of great coffee and small neighbourhood bars… there is even an urban winery just down the road. Nina argues that the best croissant in Melbourne is just around the corner.... but that’s up for debate.
