Milly Sleeping was a small shop in Carlton (in the north of inner-city Melbourne). Its focus was locally-made clothing, jewellery and accessories by independent labels and makers.

The business was established in 2005 by Janette and Leah Muddle. After twelve wonderful years, the bricks and mortar stored closed in early 2018.

A selection of wares currently remains available online.

Pieces from the store's popular select secondhand label, 'Millicent', are also available online, and will soon be relocated to a beautiful showroom at the Abbostford Convent.

Watch this space for developments.


This site was dismantled and rearranged in-house, with expert and inexpert assistance from Bevan and Marty respectively, thoughtful advice from Allison and Wendy, and sympathy from many other kind friends.
