I jumped in Alicia Silverstone last week (that’s the name of my car) and went on a road trip to Berry to explore its must-see homewares stores. There’s a lot of them on and around the main strip of this town, but these four are by far my favourites. I may have also spent a fair amount of cash on lollies in the local ice-creamery, but that’s another story altogether!
Haven & Space is so big it’s actually spread across two stores. The original locale is decked out with smaller homewares like candles, dinnerware, glassware, art and other trinkets and treasures. Their second store – just across the road – is home to furniture pieces and some more interesting finds. I was most in love with the yellow rhino head you see above. Want and need it in my living room ASAP.
I hate to play favourites but Cabana Jo’s could be mine. I spotted many known and iconic brands in this store (Ahoy Trader and Ourlieu just to name two), which has a distinctly coastal vibe to it. Tucked behind the main strip, you have to hunt this bad boy out. But when you do, trust me when I say you will not be disappointed. It has many gems I’ve not seen in Sydney – so it’s really worth the look!
The newest member of the homewares pack in Berry is Little Rae, and good Lord is it a welcome addition. Stripped back, rustic and earthy, this store not only stocks homewares but fashion for men, women and children. It’s home to the best and most interesting range of cacti I’ve ever seen – as well as some stunning candles and left-of-centre pieces. This one definitely feels new and on-trend. Find it on the main strip.
I’ve saved the iconic Moss Nest for last as it truly is one to behold. It’s an experience venturing into this store – decked out with a combo of vintage and contemporary homewares that feel eclectic and one-off. It’s totally old-world and even gloriously eery in some corners. Ornate clocks and lighting are steps away from taxidermy and there’s an exquisite florist at the front that I’m head over heels for, too! It’s on the main strip next to Little Rae, so you can’t miss it!
