If shopping is your favourite type of cardio, then we’ve got your Saturday morning plans covered. Why not take a stroll down Angove Street to check out some of the latest North Perth boutiques? Find yourself a new outfit, grab a coffee and even pick up something cute for your apartment… Just make sure to have your credit cards at the ready! Here is where you should be shopping:
#1 Only One Ashley
Where: 348 Walcott Street
If you are after an eye-catchingly pretty frock, then this boutique is for you. Opening its doors in 2016, Only One Ashley was launched by Perth designer Kate Watts in honour of her daughter, who, sadly passed away at the young age of 18. Kate is notorious for one-of-a-kind race day wear creations as well as long, flowy bridal gowns. Her label is centred around love, and when you step through the doors of this particular boutique, you can certainly feel it.
#2 Morgan Marks
Where: 26 Angove Street
Designer Morgan Marks has been a local resident in North Perth for over a decade. So when the lease for her shop in Mt Lawley came to an end, it seemed only fitted she relocate her shop somewhere closer to home. As well as stocking the full range of her signature, art-driven pieces, she also stocks brands unbeknown to the everyday fashionista. Dogstar, Kimberly Tonkin, Ramli and Roxanne Heptner’s line of clothing, WILT are just a few of the brands you can find here. And if you are in the market for a new fragrance, there’s a fair few Helmut Lang perfumes to waft your way through. Find her at her store in Nedlands, too!
#3 Second Time Around
Where: 66 Angove Street
Imagine buying a whole new designer outfit for a quarter of the original price. Well, at Second Time Around you can. Based on the idea of “circular fashion”, this little North Perth boutique really gives you bang for your buck. From clothing to shoes and even accessories are taken in on consignment and sold at a fraction of the original price. So you can rock that new Gucci bag and still afford to eat dinner for the rest of the week.
#4 Angove St Collective
Where: 31 Angove Street
Angove Street Collective is a stylish hub where you can find some of the most uniquely handcrafted homewares, funky furniture and nifty little nick-nacks. Around eight designers share the space, all with a common passion for rustic refinement. And if you are keen to meet the artists and designers behind the collections, keep an ear out for the ‘meet the maker’ events that take place here regularly.
#5 North Perth Caffeine fix: Stomp Coffee
Where: 39 Angove Street
Carrie Bradshaw once remarked “shopping is my cardio”, so why not take a well deserved break and sipsome liquid gold at one of North Perth’s favourite cafe gardens? Sitting pretty next door to Angove Street Collective is Stomp Coffee who serving up all day breakfast and tasty treats (including donuts from the infamous Mary Street Bakery) It’s the ideal pitt stop to kick back under the shady trees and sift through all of your goodies.
