Hi, my name is Melissa. I am a lover of fashion, interiors, colour, pretty things, sequins and graphic design. Here I share my inspirations & creations.
Moppit is the brand and Moppit and more is the store.
Moppit started back in 2002 after my sister Jennie Moon decided the children’s fashion market needed a shake up. At the time there was not much in the way of cool t-shirts for boys and that is where it began. She started designing, screen printing, sewing and selling her way around Australia. I joined her within the first year and YES we have been selling online since 2003. Moppit has produced great quality, bright and colourful children’s clothing for the past 12 years. The brand is all about fun, colour and simplicity. The range expanded to lots of graphic tees, baby onesies, girls knit and woven dresses, denim, jackets and hats and more. We started selling to boutique fashion stores around Australia as well as expanding to the USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand and Spain.
Our first retail concept store opened in Northcote, Melbourne 2006. Since then we have moved to our current location of the strip shopping precinct Clifton Hill. We have been here for over 4 years now. Since our inception the children’s fashion world has exploded and there is now so much more available.
The Moppit store has evolved with the times and now does not just stock just the Moppit brand but many more fabulous Australian and International brands. Hence the new name Moppit and more.
We carry a range of gifts, clothing, toys, decor, hair accessories, puzzles, nappy bags, wall stickers, shoes and more. We even have the fabulous brand Incy Interiors cots!!!
Our stylish fashion includes brands such as Littlehorn, Minti, Chalk and Cheese, Rock your baby, Alphabet Soup, Well spotted, Gypsy kids, Coco and Ginger, esp no1., Nunu, Peggy, Acorn, Havoc denim, Frankie and Lola, Toshi hats and of course we stock our own brand Moppit. Our range of shoes has expanded after the phenomnen that is Saltwater sandals. We carry Feiyue, See kai Run, and soon to be Tip toey joey.
As the first stockist in Melbourne of Saltwater sandals we have been supplying kids and Adults with their sandals over the past 4 years. One of our latest must haves is the Schier Shoe desert boot individually hand made in Swakopmund, Nambia. These boots are made from lightweight and super soft kudu leather. Moppit is the only Australian supplier of this cool shoe.
Our range of gifts include wooden toys, educational games, knitted animal toys, handmade softies, crayons and pencils, buntings. One such brand is the Fair ethical and fun brand The Little Sparrow which features Multi colour polka dot wraps, toys and crochet granny blankets. The Mum’s do not miss out either with Emily Green necklaces, Meow girl jewellery and Happy socks for adults.
Our reputation is for high quality long lasting clothes that fit well and that kids love to wear. We offer lots of Australian made products not available anywhere else!!
I am contantly sourcing the globe for new and interesting brands that offer my customer something unique and different.
These days Moppit and more is just me –Melissa Robbins. Jennie started work in the world of corporate fashion a number of years ago and is hooked!! I run the brand, the store, have fun with the crazy window displays, entertain myself on instagram (@moppitandmore), teach fashion business part time and oh I have a two kids – a boy (6) and girl (8) and a husband too!!!!
