Forget the socks and undies this Father’s Day bring on the DAD BAG

Forget the socks and undies this Father’s Day bring on the DAD BAG
  The Dad Bag could be the greatest Father’s Day gift idea EVER. The perfect combination of the finest gourmet sausages and beer from the Inner West. This is sure to catapult me straight to the top of the ‘Favourite Child’ list this year. The Dad Bag is the perfect gift for any dad with a taste for craft beer, artisan sausages and lashings of hot sauce. Stocked with Chrissy’s...

Paesanella Food Emporium in Marrickville is OPEN!
Foodies rejoice! Marrickville just keeps getting better and better. I have watched with interest the development of the Paesanella Food Emporium over the last couple of months, but it wasn’t until yesterday that I ventured inside. I’m kicking myself now for not going earlier. Paesanella Cheese, is an Australian family owned business that has been operating out of a factory in Marrickville... 

Spotlight on an Inner West Business: Westsyde Connection

Spotlight on an Inner West Business: Westsyde Connection
If you are interested in skating, fashion or street art, you probably already know about Westsyde Connection. While I’m certainly not a skater, Westsyde Connection, located in Dulwich Hill is so much more than just a skate store. Huge thanks to  RJ, Nathan and John for taking the time to do this interview. How would you describe Westsyde Connection to someone who hasn’t visited your store? Westsyde... 

A Match Made in Heaven – Koskela & Kitchen By Mike

A Match Made in Heaven - Koskela & Kitchen By Mike
The Inner West is a hub for great food and design. New places are constantly opening and the two newbies on the block are Koskela & Kitchen By Mike! Koskela is an insanely cool design and furniture store, which was originally located in Surry Hills and has now moved to Rosebery and shares a warehouse space with Kitchen By Mike. Food and design under the one roof, as far as I’m concerned... 

IKEA Tempe Grand Opening…1 more sleep

IKEA Tempe Grand Opening...1 more sleep
I hope you have all brushed up on your Swedish and polished your allen keys because it is only one more sleep until IKEA Tempe opens (Thursday 3 November). It has been a long wait, almost two years of watching the Tempe store take shape but the big day has almost arrived. I drove along the Princes Highway last night and could only think that this was the calm before the oncoming IKEA mania storm.... 

A crazy world of antiques and design

A crazy world of antiques and design
The Antique and Design Gallery in Alexandria has to be seen to be believed. You can’t miss this bright yellow warehouse as you drive along Mitchell Road and it brings new meaning to the phrase “jam packed”! The ground floor is full (literally packed from the floor to the ceiling) with pre-loved items of furniture, clothing, accessories, instruments, surfboards, bicycles… you... 

That Vintage Shop + more

That Vintage Shop + more
Walking up Enmore Road, heading to Newtown for lunch, I recently discovered the treasure trove that is That Vintage Shop.  Located on Enmore Road (right across from Enmore Park and the new Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre), That Vintage Shop is vintage plus a whole lot more. It is an eclectic mix of furniture, accessories, chandeliers, bird cages, kitchen utensils, artwork and door handles.... 

Ikea Tempe is getting closer to opening their doors

Ikea Tempe is getting closer to opening their doors
Recently I set up a home office and I had to make the trek/expedition out to Rhodes Ikea. Seriously that place is a nightmare to get to. I thought I was being smart by leaving work early and going on Friday afternoon, there was no way I was going to deal with a weekend crowd at Ikea. My plan was really good in theory until I hit the traffic at 3pm Friday afternoon on Parramatta Rd, what a shocker. Anyway,... 

Mama Green & Sounds Like Home

Mama Green & Sounds Like Home
I am a little bit in love! Alice Street in Newtown is my new favourite place since I discovered Sounds Like Home and Mama Green. These two companies have a showroom on Alice Street which is open to the public. It is a treasure trove of furniture and homewares (other than food and street art – these are two of my favourite things). Mama Green is a contemporary eco design, outdoor furniture company....
