Melbourne has some amazing clothing and design shops, it’s the perfect shopping destination, below are my favourite three shops for homeware, gifts and other obscure objects of desire.
Make Designed Objects located at 194 Elgin St, Carlton, 3053 Victoria, Australia offers a huge selection of stunning homeware, woodwork, stationery and just about everything you need to make your life more beautiful. My favourite pieces are from Australian artist Fink, Japanese paper merchant Midori and woodmaker Stephen Ziguras.
The Collaborate Store at 1/171 Greville Street, Prahran, 3181 Victoria, Australia is a tiny shop that curates and designs jewellery pieces and stocks beautiful ceramics. I couldn’t resist buying some pastel cups made by Milly and Eugene.
Close by the Collaborate Shop is the Lunar Store at 2/127 Greville St, Prahran, 3181 Victoria, Australia stocking locally crafted ceramics, jewellery, leather goods, photography products and inspired objects for your home. I especially loved the jewellery they sold from Australian brand Elk accessories.
