Monday shop post - Safade

It's November already and I've begun thinking about Christmas gifts because, well, I don't like to leave things to the last minute or I end up rushing around like crazy on the 24th December trying to think of something, anything to buy friends and loved ones. So the next time I'm visiting my girlfriend in Williamstown I am going to make a bit of a side trip to Safade (located at 94 Douglas Parade, Williamstown).  I just know I'll be able to find the perfect Christmas gift for the girls from my book club in this very store.

Apparently Safade means 'white' or 'pure' in Hindu - quite a lovely name for a store.  Anyway, the shop is owned by two sisters, Sarah and Christine Lockey, and they have exquisite taste. They sell beautiful clothes and homewares and have an online shop too. Unfortunately the online shop rather limited in what it sells online, so if possible, it's better to visit the store if you can...

A few of my favourites from the shop are...

Bone photo frames:

I think these white ceramic candlesticks would look lovely on the dining table for Christmas day:

And this bone inlaid photo frame and box would make a nice family Kris Kringle gift:

These decorations would add a nice bit of bling to the Christmas tree this year

This necklace would be just the thing for a special friend of mine - I can just picture her wearing this...

And I like this feather engraved bangle too:

And last image for the day, these mother-of-pearl butterfly brooches - they look great in a group of three. I can never resist a butterfly!

Welcome home - looks like you had a fabulous holiday! All this Christmas talk is just the littlest bit scary - I haven't even begun to think about it yet. Love the Christmas decorations - will have to see if they're available on-line. Leigh
