local shop resources

I'm always on the lookout for interesting retailers here in Perth. I'm not a fan of large shopping malls that sell generic stuff. I'll list my favourite go-to's for local gift buying, for myself and others, I'm sure there are more, if you have any please do list them in the comments I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting.

Aspects of Kings Park – for all things Western Australian/Australian, but no block of wood clocks here, or thongs in the shape of Australia, thank goodness!

Black Plastic – all sorts of kitschy goodness and lots of great stocking stuffers this time of year.

The Butcher Shop – I haven't been here, but online they're looking like my sort of thing.

Distracted – even if you go just to visit, Natalie keeps a lovely shop and has wonderful window displays.

EDITED: Little Design Horse – I don't know how I could have forgotten these guys. They ROCK.

Lotus – there's the gift and home shop and the next block up, the accessories shop.

Mr Sparrow – this is probably my current favourite, it's small but full of indie and designer yummy.

Remedy – This is another current favourite.

Ruck Rover General Store – yummy indie goodness.

Ware – no website, but a ripper shop.

I've created a google map, feel free to add any indie/designer retailers in Perth, Western Australia. Can be in the country, doesn't have to be metro only.

    kakulas brothers might be a nice addition to your list. it is food stuff, but they are insanely awesome and unique in perth.

    the butcher shop is rad. they used to be keith and lottie which was also rad. they support local art in a big way.
