Our concept is to combine vintage furniture and homewares, mainly sourced from farm clearing sales around NSW and Victoria, with handmade designs from around Australia, together with a number of European, US and NZ designs which we import directly. Customers often comment that they've seen certain designs we stock in national magazines and they would normally have had to go to Sydney or Melbourne to buy them.
After a move from Sydney nearly 3 years ago when one of the family was starting Uni in Wagga Wagga, we found that we really missed the Sydney markets - Paddington, Bondi, Kirribilli, Manly etc, which were a regular excursion on most weekends, so we’ve tried to give the shop a ‘market’ feel.
Some of our Australian suppliers- mainly sourced from Markets - include Kirsten Ash, Naomi Murrell, Delilah Devine, Samantha Robinson and Almond Tree frames.
We also stock original paintings by local artist - Carolyn Mulrooney and some beautiful handmade bird mobiles, soft toys and other designs by local artist, Christy Wheatley.
During a trip to London and Paris early in 2010, we visited a couple of trade shows and found some wonderful suppliers not currently distributing in Australia. We are able to stock some truly unique items as a result of these relationships.
