Recently I was invited to go and experience shopping at the fantastic Uni Hill Factory Outlet in Bundoora.
Wow what an amazing set of outlets, home to the biggest Nike outlet in Melbourne, one of the things I immediately loved about Uni Hill Factory Outlets in comparison to other factory outlet places I have been to,was that it was so easy to park! I hate driving into the city and more than that I hate paying for parking, that's right folks, free undercover parking!!!
Anyway, eight fellow bloggers and myself met with the gorgeous girls from 360 Immerse for a lovely morning of Fathers Day crafting. Oh yes I said crafting, Uni Hill also has a Kaiser Craft outlet and you know what that means, paper, embellishments and MDF shapes at AWESOME prices (I may have gone straight there after and spent a small fortune, shh don't tell!)
First up we had a speaker from Cosmetics Fragrance Direct discussing new men's fragrance releases, my favorite had to be Versace's Eros, it had kind of a minty smell. You can read more here.
We made tool boxes, the pressure was on as the only craft blogger, sadly I didn't finish but I plan on having it done by Fathers Day! You can get the tutorial over at the Kaisercraft Website here. The crafting workshop was held by Melissa Kennedy who is the creative designer for Kaisercraft so of course she was like a rock star for me. If you're into paper crafts check her blog here.
Then we got to run around the stores with the challenge of putting together gift packs for different types of ads, it truly was a lot of fun, hey when else can you run into stores and just grab whatever you want...of course all items were returned later.
I visited all the sports places, including Nike, Adidas and Puma and there were still about 7 other sports places, I never got to, seriously this is a shoppers dream! Julian LOVES his caps, they have an outlet called CAPZ and that's all it is, pure Fathers Day heaven.
At the end of the day if you're not shopping for Dad, there are so many places to visit, I bet you don't get to every place. So if you're in Melbourne head over to Uni Hill Factory Outlets, you won't be disappointed. See here for trading and address details
