You're sure to find that perfect gift here

If you have a special gift to buy, this is the shop for you. Head along to Thousand Island Dressing and you're sure to find the perfect thing. The store's customers range from high school students looking for that special accessory for their school formal to their mothers looking for that perfect piece of jewellery to match an outfit.

There's something here to suit all budgets, from kids with their pocket money to healthy wallets. Items range from the most budget friendly items (necklaces and earrings) for $5 to semi precious handmade woven neck pieces for $249. Most costume jewellery has a price tag under $40.

The less expensive jewellery range comes from Bali, as do a lot of the homeware items. A beautiful collection of handmade jewellery is imported from Mexico, whilst a lot of stock is sourced from local craftsmen and women.

The store is fresh and modern, with a front window that always attracts the eye, usually with beautiful lighting displays. Walls are adorned with strings of colourful beads, bracelets, earrings, silver, gold, and rose gold. Shelves are stocked with quirky homewares, candles and displays of leather handbags and wallets to tempt you to open your own wallet.

This is a very "girlie" space but that doesn't mean that only shoppers of the female variety should cross the threshold. In fact, it would be a very smart male who stepped inside Thousand Island Dressing and an even smarter one who left with a "special something" for their other half.

Leanne DeMartini, owner of Thousand Island Dressing, Paddington says, "We have listened to our customers for the more than 10 years we have been in existence and like to think we can satisfy most tastes and budgets. We're introducing a bigger range of stock for men, including a great range of cufflinks that are both fun and classy."
