Since this blog has a worldwide audience, I try to include products from as many places as I can. But I know that the majority of the products I list come from the USA or the U.K. - so here's a post focused specifically on products that my Australian readers can find more easily.
Let's start small, and then move on to larger items. Little Jane St has ceramic magnets on 12 different designs. I'm partial to the ampersand, myself, but I know people who would probably go for the cupcakes. [via Bloesem]
Intrigued by all the Keep Calm and Carry On products? You can get these magnets (and magnets with many other designs) from Iszle.
And The Rabbit and The Duck is one more place to get some magnets. Update on Sept. 6, 2010: It seems this Etsy shop no longer sells magnets.
Organisers tend to prefer staples to paper clips, but I can see uses for this giant paper clip - and besides, it's darling. (Could the fairy be holding the Organising Magic Wand that we all wish existed?)
Stepping up in size, we come to these lovely bookends, sold by Reader's Niche. They come in three different colors.
Sasha Sews has fabric baskets and other organising items.
Ute Australian Design has a number of storage products, including this magazine rack; another neat product is the CD storage unit. [vie Indie art and design]
And moving on to larger items, Daire Timber Products provides "100% Australian made solid timber" CD and DVD racks of various sizes. It's a family-owned and operated business, too.
Wildwood Designs makes a range of furniture, including bookcases and related items, such as this wine rack.
And finally, Bugendore Wood Works Gallery has some lovely cabinets from various furniture makers.
