Love to shop? Sydney shopping has it all, from luxe labels and home-grown fashion to buzzy markets. Stroll through the historic Queen Victoria Building and Strand Arcade, as popular for their beautifully restored interiors as they are for the fashion boutiques they house featuring local and international brands. The Galeries Victoria on George Street is home to urban brands while World Square spans three levels of an entire city block.
Sydney is home to some of Australia’s best markets, featuring stylish fashion, beautiful gifts, vintage furniture, fresh food, free entertainment and much more. A trip to the markets is the perfect way to spend a day exploring the city, picking up everything from quirky souvenirs to ugg boots, resin jewellery and vintage wear.
The design shop where everything is handpicked for small spaces. Here you can find sofas’ that easily convert into a bed, or a shelf that fits into a very tight corner.
It’s not a typical showroom, where you will see just one precious furniture piece at the center of the space. Here everything looks like an apartment and here you can find Australian-made items such as stationery, jewelry, leather goods and so on.
This is the shop where each space is curated to reflect a different room in the home. The industrial space showcases a mix of vintage and new furniture, lighting, homewares and toys selected by owners Russel Koskela and Sasha Titckosky
