Never be stuck for a gift idea again
Mountain Ash Trading Company
Great gifts

Here are two of my favourite little gift shops that never let me down when I'm looking for something a little different but still reasonably priced. The sort of places where I sometimes have to buy a small something for myself at the same time.

First is The Mountain Ash Trading Company, located at 1536 Mt Dandenong Tourist Rd,Olinda. The shop is tiny and crammed full of gifts for every age and gender. I've bought hand crafted baby leather boots, a Peter Rabbit bunny for a newborn, china cups, hand made cards and a beautiful hand made ball for a baby. The stock changes regularly, there always seems to be something new and interesting.

At the moment the store is in Christmas mode of course so check it out for those hard to buy people in your life. The owner of the business is just lovely and very helpful. The hours are varied so best to check online or phone before you make a special trip.

My other go to store is Heaton & May, Shop 1, 47 Olinda-Monbulk Rd, Olinda. It's tucked away at the very end of the Olinda shops. The first thing I thought of when I entered the store was what a peaceful little haven it was, and how beautifully arranged.

Unlike Mountain Ash, this shop has more space but has stayed with a more minimalist look. There is still plenty on offer though and I particularly like their range of stationery items
