For those of you who are just too impatient to wait for the postman (that has to be the worst thing about online shopping, right?!), you can now pop into Utopia Goods’ temporary store in Sydney’s Bondi Junction.
And what’s even better, from 3 to 16 May, their handcrafted homewares will be on sale, with 20-to-50% off all stock, including limited edition fabrics, cushions, bed linen, tableware and accessories.
The pop-up store will also allow local fans the opportunity to snap up Utopia Goods’ signature hand-illustrated prints, referencing Australia’s native bush flora and fauna in their full technicolour glory. Some of the best buys of the sale will be the contemporary Crimson Rosella printed quilts in 100% cotton — with a co-ordinating Vermicular Squiggle on the flip side — for $190 each and the languorous Laughing Kookaburra print splayed across a range of duvets, sheets sets and pillowcases in a rhapsody of rainbow hues (available in single, queen and king sizes) from $110.
Also available are tablet cases in Mountain Fern and Flannel Heath (perfect gift material) and kaleidoscope coloured makeup pouches and backpacks (ideal for shaking up the usual pallor-palette of weekender luggage), all at 50% off original prices.
The pop-up store, at 240 Oxford Street, Bondi Junction, is open until 16 May. Opening times are 9.30am-to-5.30pm Monday to Friday, 10am-to-4pm Saturday and 11am-to-3pm Sunday.
