Lily and The Weasel

It's usually the first place we go to buy gifts, but we generally leave with five other things we didn't anticipate buying (last time it was milk bottles sporting the Jolly Roger). With an eclectic mix of homewares, jewellery and objects of desire, it's also particularly handy if you want to give an Aussie inspired and made gift without a hint of cringe. Check out their inspired window dressing.

Zara Home

The store has every home base covered – everything from luxury loungeware and slippers to hyacinth-shaped candles, green faux-cowhide notepads and gilt crabs that double as tiny, secret storage spaces. It's our new go-to place for wedding gifts.

Fenton & Fenton

Let's be upfront about this: it's pretty exy in here, so we like to regard it as shopping for the eyes, but if you're a trust fund baby you should get there as a matter of urgency. Fave picks include the wild geometric print towels and the apothecary candles (more skulls and crossbones), neither of which would break the bank. Otherwise, keep an eye out for warehouse sales.

Wunderkammer

If the thought of beige homewares from Country Road makes you want to stab yourself, chances are that Wunderkammer'll float your boat. We spend hours poring over the scientific paraphernalia, skeletons, butterflies and maps.

The Local Shop and Flowers by Entwine

This place is every bit as beautiful as a French flower shop (admittedly we're devout Francophiles, but they really do know how to lay out a bloom). Cool and kooky homewares fall in behind a fragrant wall of colour and the last time we visited was for a terrarium workshop (we had our eye on pink flamingo bookends and record sleeve coasters).

Lost and Found Market

After a few location changes, Lost and Found have settled into their huge new warehouse home in East Brunswick. In many ways, a trip to Lost and Found is like an inadvertent visit to the Lost Dogs Home: it's packed with precious little things hoping for a warm, loving home. Maybe you weren’t expecting to leave with a fuzzy orange armchair, but you really didn’t have a choice, did you?
