Lark Ballarat Store Opening

Posted by | MEET, SEE & DO | No Comments


One of Australia’s independent design store success stories Lark, is opening its doors at 30 Armstrong Street North in Ballarat on Friday 14th November, amazingly just in time for Christmas.

Lark was founded in Daylesford in 2006 by UK expat Allison Jones and her Bendigo-born husband Paul Matthews. Opening in sunny Ballarafornia has been on the agenda since the family moved into town two years ago with their young sons. Allison says “we love living in Ballarat, it is a great place to bring up a family. We’ve been interested in moving our store to Ballarat for some time now, and we believe Armstrong Street Is a great location, near to the many other new shops and cafés that are starting to pop up in town”.

BallaFornian Mascot and Call for Fascinating Folks

BallaFornian Man
BallaFornia’s scribes will soon be digging for human gold, as they search for Ballarat’s most fascinating folk.

We will be talking to artists, musicians, dancers, tattooists, owners of interesting businesses, scientists, educators – anybody that makes Ballarat and surrounding areas Balla-rilliant … OK, we need to workshop that adjective a bit more.

If you know of anybody we should interview, please get in contact.

Meanwhile, we whipped up this handsome, gold-diggin’ dandy, and are thinking of using him as our mascot. What should we name him?
