Rose St Trading Co

Last post for the year! Such a busy time of year, but if you’re still after a last minute gift then here is the store for you. I’d recommend going in rather than online, there is so much more in store!

Rose St Trading Co.
This gorgeous store has recently moved into Hawthorn. I watched as they moved in and set up just down the road from my work and it is just the kind of store at Glenferrie Road needed. A stunning store full of home wares, women’s accessories, jewellery, art- you get the idea. If you can’t find the perfect gift in here (for a female anyway) then I’m out of ideas! The cushions and lamps are seriously amazing and probably my favourite pieces in the store. You really could be there for a while looking through everything! And if you really love their style then Rose St offer interior design services. Wishing I could have a little bit of everything!

I haven’t been to the Armadale store but I am more than sure it is just as beautiful. You can also Rose St Trading Co stores in Albert Park and in Sydney. Find all the addresses you need to find Rose St Trading Co here

Why not have a wander down Glenferrie Road- especially in mid January the street is very quiet because everyone is away but all the stores should be open again after the Christmas break. There are some great shops including some other favourites of mine that are worth checking out- Mozi for well priced home wares and Hoss for luxe fashion and shoes.  And although I am not working there anymore as of very recently, I still say the kids store Petit et Grand is to die for, even if you don’t have kids just go and check out the gorgeous kids fashion!

I am looking forward to bringing you some exciting news in January (with my web luck- probably early Feb). Let me know any of your finds over summer!

Salvage and Selvedge

This weeks store quickly became one of my favourites, I can say I’ve ticked off a few important birthday pressies from here for this year already!

Salvage and Selvedge
This can be a hard one to spot if you’re not stuck in crawling traffic, which I always happen to be in so it worked out perfectly for finding this store!

A bright store that isn’t jam packed with stock but literally I could have easily purchased one of everything in there, I loved it! The owners make a range of jewellery and all the wooden items such as shelving and tables themselves so it is really nice to know things are kept local. All other items in the store also come from equally talented Melbournians who present a quirky range of homewares and gifts.

Some of my favourites were the amazing smelling candles in amber jars, gorgeous lace printed and glazed ceramic bowls, brightly coloured owl figures and handmade wooden box shelves for the walls. The jewellery that is made in-house includes vintage button earrings and necklaces which are made with pretty fabrics and great colour combinations. There are some really inventive and quirky gift ideas to suit many- from the humble cactus appreciator to the collector of the prettiest of ceramics.

I really can’t say too much more otherwise I’ll give it all away, but this is one store definitely worth stopping in to. Located just off Brunswick Street, an easy stroll from last weeks store so maybe go and visit both!

78 Johnston Street, Fitzroy.
