Vintage Furniture and Homewares at Reclaim in NewtownI'm a huge fan of vintage decor. I love that a piece has lived a life and has a story to tell. I had been eyeing off Reclaim Newtown for some time for this very reason. Not only is it filled to the brim with homewares, fashion and stationery that I have seen nowhere else, but it also has the added bonus of being owned and operated by the glorious Monica Trapaga - jazz singer and Play School alumni! The store is a collection of her favourite things (and now some of mine, too!).

Jayde Leeder from Little Paper LaneJayde Leeder is one busy gal. Not only is she a mother to two little ones (six-year-old Iggy and 14-month-old Minty - who Jayde tells me suffers from FOMO and thinks she’s 27), but she co-owns my fave store for all things stationery, Little Paper Lane, in the Sydney suburb of Mona Vale. I sat down with the former makeup artist and learnt a few things about stationery, running a family business and her hatred of tomatoes!

P1090489There's a homewares store I've been going to for years now, every time a birthday rolls around and I want to present a gift to someone that oozes heart and warmth; it's called Humble Beginnings and it's quite possibly my favourite homeswares store (and ok - you got me - sometimes I go there when there are no upcoming birthdays and I just want a wow moment!).
