In Brisbane we have countless independent boutiques smattered throughout our suburbs that offer fabulous alternatives to mainstream retail. New gems seem to open their doors all the time. Meanwhile, others have been around for many years, and have become reliable stalwarts when it comes to friendly service and eclectic offerings. New Farm Editions is one of these stores.
If you're not familiar with this local boutique, please don't let the outside digs fool you: New Farm Editions may be located in the less-than-glamorous Merthyr Village, but its gorgeous window displays should be enough to entice you inside this long-standing New Farm favourite. Once inside, you will discover a seemingly bottomless reservoir of beautiful objects, books, homewares, children's books and toys, jewellery, accessories, and more, to satisfy even the trickiest customer.
New Farm Editions has been operating for several years and, in that time, has remained a reliable go-to for the perfect gift. This place really does have options for everyone, regardless of how tricky they might be to buy for. Need a present for Dad? Your Goddaughter's birthday? How about a gift for a colleague? I promise you that New Farm Editions will deliver.
The store is also heaven for those of us who love to while away a few hours browsing. Flick through divine coffee-table books and novels, revel in the scent of soaps, lotions, and candles, and imagine the decorating possibilities offered by colourful cushions, exquisite lamps, and the cosiest throws. There's even a collection of robes and sleepwear for lounging about… not to mention about a billion other gorgeous bits and pieces!
If you've loved this place for a while, you'll know it always rewards regular visits, and if you're a newbie, make sure you pop your head in next time you take a trip to the New Farm shops.
