We are the ones NOT CLOSING DOWN!


Many shops near us are closing down their bricks-and-mortar to be exclusively online. We have been asked several times lately if we, too, were closing down. We are not. 2019 is our 40th year serving Melbourne (yes, since 1979), and we may not make it to our 50th anniversary, but we will be here for many more years yet.

We do welcome our new next door neighbour at 416 Queens Parade, Drs Sophia and Jeremy Richardson. Sophia is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and Jeremy is a specialist plastic surgeon. Now we have a one stop centre for exquisite beauty: face, body, jewellery and exclusive homewares.

We are sorry to have lost Pickwick House Renovation Supplies and A La Turca Turkish rugs and ceramics, to online only. We are also sorry to be losing Brunswick St Antiques and Capocchi Collingwood, in our own industry. Unfortunately the  negligible  cost of online retail compared to the regal fortune required to sustain a bricks-and-mortar shop means we will soon only have food or services, but not durable products, in shops. We know the pleasure of window shopping began in 1681 in Paris. Is it about to disappear?
