WHERE I SHOP
Eleanor Pendleton, founder of Gritty Pretty, reveals her favourite spots to shop
1 Splice Boutique, Freshwater Just a few streets from my home, this boutique is my go-to for local fashion designers Zulu & Zephyr, Kacey Devlin, Bec & Bridge and Viktoria & Woods. Spliceboutique.com.au
2 Water Tiger, St Peters I stay up to date with Water Tiger’s deliveries via Instagram. When a new shipping container arrives filled with exotic finds from India or Turkey, I want one of everything (especially the large Turkish pots)! Watertiger.com.au
3 Mamapapa, Avalon Beach I always fall in love with something at Mamapapa. Owner Virgine Batterson’s eye for detail is truly exceptional. Mamapapa.com.au
4 Commune Bondi, Bondi Junction It takes a lot for me to leave my home on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, but I’ll venture to the Eastern Suburbs for Commune Bondi. I love their range of rustic ceramics, woven baskets, rattan accessories and In Bed linen. Communebondi.com
5 Totem Road, Paddington I love everything about Totem Road’s approach to sustainable furniture. In my home, my pride and joy is my oversized Luxa mirror and Maebry entertainment unit – both from Totem Road. Totemroad.com
6 Net-A-Porter When I want to treat myself, I buy something from Net-A-Porter. The experience and service is extraordinary from start to finish – it makes online shopping feel special. Next on my list is a Gucci belt! Net-a-porter.com
7 The Undone Sara Crampton is the brains behind fashion blog Harper and Harley and e-boutique The Undone. This is my go-to when I’m looking for classic, fail-safe pieces like the perfect denim jeans, black blazer or white men’s-style shirt. Theundone.com
8 Alabaster Trader I’ve bought several Indian Seeder Candle Holders and Old Indian Bowls from here. Their pieces are exquisite, but not over-priced. Right now, I’m eyeing off the Jali Almirah Cabinet for my guest room. Alabastertrader.com
9 Pottery For The Planet I found these gorgeous ceramic coffee cups while I was scrolling through Instagram. They make the perfect gift. Potteryfortheplanet.com
10 Gritty Pretty Yes, I even shop from my own e-boutique, which stocks some of my beauty favourites including Becca, SK-II, Bioderma, Helmut Lang and The Beauty Chef. Shop.grittypretty.com
11 Kim Soo, Bali My husband and I travel to Bali often, and whenever we’re there, I always make sure to stop by Kim Soo in Seminyak – to buy homewares, but also for the carrot cake from the on-site cafe. It’s incredible! Kimsoo.com
12 Worn Store, Byron Bay The edit from owners Lia-Belle King and Lotte James Barnes is nonchalant and refined. I desperately want a Cane Oval Relax chair for my place. Wornstore.com.au R
