Guest Submission by Kelsey Reilly, intern at Tourism Barossa.
Barossa is the perfect destination to find all your homeware needs; from table runners to bedheads, and everything else in between. Follow this itinerary as a guide to find all the hidden gems in the region and explore the Barossa as a retail destination.
Tanunda. A day of shopping isn’t complete without an early morning coffee and breakfast fix, and Darlings Food with Passion Café is a great way to kick off your day. Afterwards, make your way to Ironstone Cottage and inspire your inner Parisian as you explore the beautiful range of French provincial homewares.
Cross the main street and make your way inside quaint Elemental Barossa where you will be greeted by incredible collections of unique giftware, from African-made baskets to Polish pottery. Each item is sourced from artisan producers from all over the world, many of which are fair-trade and sustainable.
Further along the street, A Time for Seasons combines hairdressing with fashion, accessories, and homewares. Amanda’s innovative shopping concept is host to a variety of items including serving-ware, décor, and distinctive pieces of furniture.
Wohlers is just a short stroll away and has a reputation for stocking a fantastic range of large furniture items such as sofas and beds, as well as smaller homewares such as napery and glassware. Have a browse through the gigantic store and be amazed by the gorgeous range of products.
By crossing back over the street, you’ll find yourself in front of Living by Design, a stunning store filled with stylish and modern pieces which are sourced from all over the world. From candles to rugs, and armchairs to dining tables, Living by Design has everything that you need to transform your living spaces.
Afterwards, make your way to Angaston where you will find the beautiful Casa Carboni. Here you can find a huge selection of traditional Italian kitchenware and pantry items. It’s also worth taking the time to order an Italian platter for lunch and a glass of fine wine. Next door, Barossa Valley Cheese Company has all your locally-made cheese-boards sorted as well as many other beautiful serving-ware items. After tasting their samples, make sure you stock up on some of your favourite award-winning cheeses, and local artisanal products!
Next stop Nuriootpa. If you’re a lover of indoor plants and beautiful fresh flowers, then you must drop by Fleur Social – their range is incredible and you’re always guaranteed to find that perfect living piece to brighten up your home, and did we mention you can also get your caffeine fix? Have a chat over incredible coffee and cake with Ryan whilst browsing the gorgeous flowers that Sara has arranged.
The Co-Op’s Home Living store is a one-stop shop where you can find anything you’re after, from beds to napery, and trinkets to throw rugs and the very latest in homeware trends. Check out their huge range and while away an hour or two.
To celebrate a successful day of shopping, head back to Tanunda to have dinner. 1918 Bistro & Grill, or fermentAsian are both guaranteed to impress, but it’s recommended that you make bookings for these popular restaurants!
