I have always been tempted by the idea of a retail store, I would really love to have one, but with my young family and other work commitments a full-time retail store open 7days just isn’t something I can manage right now. Hopefully in the future sometime. Having had a wedding store in Mosman in my early 30s I know what a commitment it is.So in the meantime, I thought it would be ideal to have a little place that reflected by signature style and where I could sell the sort of things I have in my home and I love to decorate with. We can all buy plenty online, but it’s nice to see things in person, to touch and feel and browse.I have renovated the stall to reflect my taste and style, and you will see I have used the same wall colour as in our house and the same wall paneling too. With a lovely sisal rug. So the idea is that it presents and looks like my home, my style, my look.
This “stall” is only small, in fact tiny really, but it’s a start and hopefully with your support will grow to something bigger. I have started with a small range, but as with my signature cushions it’s things I love and use in my own home. I’d love your feedback and input so that I can add the things you really want.
The product range is ever changing and things are selling quickly. I have been amazed how, without letting anybody know it was there, I have been really happy with the response. There is a lot I can ship and send around the country, but there are also more fragile and delicate items that are tricky to ship, so this is a good place to make them available.In the stall you will find a large selection of my favourite blue and white ceramics, ginger jars, plates, pots, urns etc. Some beautiful artwork from Designer Boys, framed in my favourite dark faux bamboo. There are lots of stunning faux potted orchids that I love to use, some fiddle leaf figs, mirrors, lovely lamps, a statement blue and white ceramic lamp, fabulous black star pendant, lots of accessories and interior design books.If you don’t know Dirty Jane’s Antique Market, it is a fabulous market that has been undergoing a major redevelopment lately. I have a stall in the antique market, which is open 7 days, 10am to 5pm. It’s a wonderful treasure trove of amazing stalls and a huge variety of goodies, plus a nursery and terrific cafe. More larger shops opening soon too, and many local shops relocating into the new refurbished area at the front. There will be a wine bar that opens out onto the courtyard where the Potting Shed currently is. The whole place is going to be buzzing with life and busyness.So take a trip to Bowral and come for a browse around or if you’re local pop into Dirty Jane’s and visit my stall. Shop 405 in the old shed. The carpark is on Banyette St which intersects Bong Bong St.
I might see you there!
