Map umbrellas and a fairy bread purse – our fab finds from Make Me Iconic

If you’re after something unique and, well, iconic, you head to Australia’s very own Make Me Iconic website. It has everything from artwork and cushions to toys and stationary. Today, we found a couple of very cool things to show you: Umbrellas with map prints and a purse which look like fairy bread. What fun!

First, the umbrellas. You can get either a vintage Australia map print or an old classic Melbourne Melway map. They’re black on the outside and have the cool print on the inside.

Make Me Iconic Umbrella

These beauties have a sturdy wooden shaft and handle and a press-and-push opening. Plus, at 90x100cm, they’re wide enough to fit your kids or hubby underneath with you.

They’re $60 from the Make Me Iconic online store. The store ships overseas for those wanting to send a cool gift to a friend over in Europe approaching winter. (I hate to scare you but Christmas is fast approaching!)

Make Me Iconic fairy bread purse

And now for the fairy bread purse. I personally think it would be fun to use this as a make-up bag, but I’d say its main use is meant for kids. And what child doesn’t love fairy bread and sequins! A match made in heaven – and a perfect gift idea too.

The purse is cotton lined with a metal zip and sequins and beading as decoration. It’s a practical take on fairy bread without the sugar high. This cutie pie is $17.

If you like the quirky kind of Australiana you see, make sure you browse all the other Make Me Iconic finds we’ve brought you.
