Striking gold in Melbourne's North

Luck seems to play a big part in the TUCKBOX journey - or maybe it's a healthy amount of gratitude that leads us to where we are! We reckon our location, Campbellfield, in Melbourne's north, is lucky.

While it's not the prettiest place on earth, we are surrounded by manufacturers and businesses who are gold mines of information, materials - and most surprisingly, encouragement.

We've had some great leads in the months we've been here, one of our favourites was meeting Tony from Beds Made Here. He invited us along to a morning session in his factory on how he casts iron for traditional style cast iron beds. The chance to learn from an old pro was invaluable.

Who knows where that knowledge could take us?
