Who has Gone Dotti?

A little bit about our quirky stallholder, up-cycler and jeweller Megan

The physical “Gone Dotti on Latrobe”, shop started in August 2008 with a dream to create a sense of community involvement and encourage talented people to sell their unique hand crafted inspirations. In 2011 the physical shop has become my “workshop” but you can now visit Gone Dotti at Collective Markets South Bank.

More about me…..I am very enthusiastic about handmade items and their individuality. For many years my creative outlook has been painting and recovering other people’s rejected items and redesigning them into treasures. I love to find discarded things and make them beautiful. I love to paint anything that doesn’t move! I am passionate about hunting down different, handmade items. I love to design & create quirky eclectic handmade jewellery and art. My hope is that my wares invoke love, laughter and passion.

Little Flossy

Our clothing is for little girls and we also design and import some wonderful garments from our travels.

We are a family owned business founded 14 years ago just as a hobby when my children were 1 and 4, now my girls help out in my little business working at our market stall most weekends.

I feel so very lucky to have enjoyed watching my children grow while working from home and now they enjoy working with me!

We are at The Collective Markets every weekend, just outside the Sweet Shop.
