Got a friend with a taste for home décor that’s a bit out of the ordinary? At Crate Expectations – located on a leafy side street off Glenferrie Road – you’re guaranteed to find homewares, furniture, paintings and prints that make a statement. Owner Georgina Bird is very hands-on with selecting pieces by local designers and helping customers find exactly what they’re looking for; whether that’s a handmade pastel pink resin bowl by Mornington Peninsula-based designer Keep Resin, or one-of-a-kind printed cushions by Sydney pencil artist Lisa Lapointe. Price-wise, you could spend under $30, but large one-off paintings could set you back upwards of a grand.
