Opened by best friends Sally Kelly and Gin Kalleske just two years ago, this funky little gift shop has quickly become a city favourite for its eclectic mix of quirky and kitsch, with a focus on handmade goods. Artworks and accessories by local artists and designers sit alongside big name brands – witness leather wallets and bags by cult Sydney brand Status Anxiety, whimsical resin brooches by Erstwilder, and gelati-tinged nail polishes by I Scream Nails – as well as fair trade handicrafts from Mexico, Russia and Japan. “We're very eclectic, we're always on the lookout for quirky, amazing things from all over the world,” says Kelly.
The foxes, formerly known as BFF's Gin + Sal, bought the fabulous Ikeguchi store, an icon in Adelaide for 16 years, in Jan 2015 + rebranded as The Tangerine Fox. Nearly 19 months in and yup, we're still wrapping your gifts for free, still stocking the same incredible range of Japanese ceramics + gifts, still supporting artists + craftspeople from SA + Australia....and yep, still rockin the BEST 80's soundtrack in town. It's all about the kewpie dolls, animal figurines, Star Wars stuff, wall art, Russian babushkas, candles, Mexican handicrafts, hilarious cards, Frida + Day of the Dead, funky stationery, unique homewares, retro tin toys, novelties you wont find everywhere, cool stuff for kids + cat lovers, kitsch cuckoo clocks, Sonny Angels + so much jewellery it'll make your head spin.
