Corky Saint Clair

Not only is Corky Saint Clair a great character from Waiting for Guffman, but also a much beloved Melbourne store in the Degraves subway arcade. We recently dropped off a number of Mini and Double fringed military brooches to Corky, adding to the deliciously fabulous range of jewellery, accessories and gifts. You know when you walk into a shop and feel instantly at home? That's the mood we get at Corky HQ.

Leo and I love to visit, because there is a cupcake shop nearby, a Sole Devotion shop selling John Fluevog and Trippen shoes (drool), and we love the baguette shop too. Plus the pink tiles in the stairwell and arcade are so retro, a detail from old Melbourne town that remains, let's hope for many more years.

I think the Degraves subway is something to really treasure. If we ever have out of towners come to stay we always 'accidentally' take them there - so fun to watch them discover it! Ramona

It's such a great little corner of Melbourne. I enjoy finding an excuse when I'm in the city to walk through there (preferably some time approaching lunch, so I have an excuse to parlez Francais with the baguette man...)
