Northern Rivers Style - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

It would be easy to spend an en­tire morn­ing or af­ter­noon comb­ing through the vast col­lec­tion of old and new in Adorn­ments Lis­more.

Ev­ery nook and cranny of this of this vin­tage life­style store at 99 Keen St is filled with trea­sures, from vin­tage cloth­ing, an­tiques and col­lecta­bles, to new and fresh in­te­rior de­sign and fash­ion pieces. Each item is hand-picked by own­ers Christine Miller or her hus­band Robert, who both have a fine-tuned eye for style. They’ve spent more than two decades deal­ing in col­lecta­bles, in­clud­ing 14 years in the fash­ion­able retro shop­ping precinct of Padding­ton in Bris­bane and three years in Al­stonville.

"Our abil­ity to source in­ter­est­ing and af­ford­able pieces set us apart from other busi­nesses,” says Christine.

“We are con­stantly re­fresh­ing the look of the store and shop­pers ap­pre­ci­ate the calm, am­bi­ent at­mos­phere to 'es­cape' to and browse, of­ten find­ing a great gift or item for them­selves."

Adorn­ments’ eclec­tic range in­cludes ev­ery­thing from vin­tage jew­ellery and cloth­ing, to 1970s coloured glass­ware, retro fur­ni­ture and soft fur­nish­ings, lamps, crock­ery, vases, clocks and unique home dé­cor, as well as newer pieces.

Now trad­ing for a lit­tle over 12 months, Christine says it's been heart­en­ing to re­ceive such a warm wel­come from the Lis­more com­mu­nity.: "We opened at the end of Septem­ber last year, post-flood. Lo­cals were grate­ful and saw our move as an op­ti­mistic one for their town. We brought beauty and in­trigue into the Keen St shop­ping precinct."

The store is about to re­ceive a col­lec­tion of qual­ity Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions and ac­ces­sories for the fes­tive home and ideal for gifts:"these de­light­ful dec­o­ra­tions en­hance the store in a dif­fer­ent and up­lift­ing way for this pe­riod of trad­ing.

"Our fo­cus is on and mak­ing the shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence at Adorn­ments mem­o­rable, with a fo­cus on cus­tomer ser­vice. We are happy to gift wrap pur­chases if re­quired.

"Old, new, vin­tage, up­lift­ing, ex­cit­ing and in­trigu­ing - we have some­thing for every­one."
