Six More Months in Sydney

Six More Months in Sydney

Our time in Sydney has been some of the best ever, and now we’re looking forward to another six months.  We’re extending our stay in the GPO Building until the end of the year and we couldn’t be more excited.

Since we opened the doors of our pop-up shop in Martin Place last year, we’ve hosted master classes with expert knife craftsmen, Japanese whisky tastings, free yoga classes, honey making demonstrations, a wine tasting hosted by a Master Sommelier, a build-your-own bouquet flower station, Bruny Island cheese and Tasmanian smoked salmon tastings, and a late night champagne and caviar shopping night – among many other intrigues and delights.

The next six months hold more of the unexpected, including the transformation of the space into an art gallery, the launch of a new caviar vintage, a Japanese sake tasting, a long table feast, and plenty more celebrations in the lead up to Christmas.

We’ll be launching new pieces from designers, distillers and providores with whom we’ve never worked, including a Portugese jewellery designer and a world-renowned Spanish design house, as well as new collections from designers like Lucy Folk, Marimekko and Dinosaur Designs.

Over the coming months, we’ll also be releasing a series of limited edition creations designed exclusively for us by some of the most out-there designers and providores in the country.  Melbourne-based designer Elodie Darwish, whose brass, gold and pure silver jewellery are mainstays of our pop-up shops, has already started work on her exclusive collection, and second-generation cordwainer Jess Cameron-Wootten has also started working on bespoke leathergoods for Sorry Thanks I Love You.  1803’s Penny Hansen and Tasmanian cutler Tom Hounslow are experimenting with new woods and blades for some limited edition kitchen knives, The Seventh Duchess is working on a custom tea blend for us, and Sydney-based chocolatier Amanda McKeith of Winnow Chocolates has some pretty heady ideas about a custom chocolate, too.

While this is not set to become a permanent store, the parquetry and sandstone splendour of the GPO is the perfect setting in which to showcase these collections and we’re pretty excited to get the ball rolling.  Gourmet Traveller have described us as one of their favourites, Time Out has called us “intriguingly quirky”, and the people of Sydney have used even more colourful adjectives to describe our Martin Place pop-up shop. 

We’ve loved meeting you and we’re so glad it’s not over yet.
