The first blog I ever read was written by a lady called Simone from Brisbane.  It was called Beach Vintage. On the blog, Simone shared her love of all things vintage, and many DIY sewing projects.  Today Beach Vintage has evolved into one of the best sources for fabrics and trims in Australia – Fabric Traders.  Today on DIY Decorator, Simone joins us to share her favourite homewares stores in Brisbane and it’s bayside.  Here’s Simone:

Fabric Traders – My Favourite Homewares Stores

Botticelli House – Hemmant

Di travels the world and brings back the most amazing finds. She then manages to display them all for sale in a wonderful warehouse style shed ! I will never forget the first time I walked into that place. It literally took my breath away. She is only open select days per month so follow her on Instagram for the latest news and finds!

Prezzies by the Bay – Cleveland

This is just a great little store when you need a gift last minute. It is only a few minutes from my house so I can pop in quick . It has really unusual and hard to find items. Many are exclusive. The ladies that work there are really passionate about the place and it shows.

Prezies by the Bay Cleveland

Prezzies By The Bay is located at Shop 76A, Stockland Shopping Centre, Middle Street, Cleveland or visit their Facebook page.

Miraje Home – Cleveland

Owner Janneale seems to have that real eclectic designer flare and she brings it together beautifully all in one little store in Cleveland. Find anything from reupholstered chairs to Hamptons style chic homewares. A very special store.
