I often mention serendipity, but in this case visiting LaBelle Designs in Pring St Tarragindi was the destination for me. It's owned by Nicki Christian, whom I know from way back. Nicki is a very talented fashion designer as well as homewares manufacturer.
Following her dreams she has opened a very cute store selling both her passions. She sources from international suppliers as well as individual bespoke local crafts people. Her product range is interesting, classical as well as quirky.
Nicki's extensive experience in the rag trade ensures an honest opinion but also expert advice with the clothing she sells. Not to mention she's always great for a chin wag in general.
She has recently added to her retail family and opened a coffee shop in the tenancy next door- with the cute name "Gindi". It's proven a hit with the local mums at school run time.
The shaded table area allows customers to watch the comings and goings along the beautiful leopard tree lined street.
Nicki's clever eye for detail shows inside with the bold wall paper and antique framed collage prints.
Definitely worth making this destination your serendipity!
