sydney boutique love: newspaper taxi

In a gorgeous little back street of Newtown, appropriately named 'australia street', sits an incredibly quaint boutique called newspaper taxi. I'd been dying to visit ever since I met owner Stefanie Bassett at my impromptu book signing last year at Berkelouw bookstore in Newtown. Finally last week, I got my chance...

(the always inspiring children's magazine, papier mache.)

Stef's store is filled with vintage collectibles, handmade home wares and beautiful publications like you see above, and below...

(ebony's divine gift wrapping zine. Ebony is also selling her zines online, of which all proceeds from the sales will go directly to Red Cross to help survivors in Japan.)

Newspaper Taxi is also an exclusive stockist of one of our favourite parisian artisans, Nathalie Lété. At the moment, Stef has some stunning prints by Nathalie. If you're in newtown, be sure to check out stef's store.  If you're nowhere near newtown and don't think you'll be there in the near future, you can also view part of stef's extensive collection of goodies on her online shop here. And! she writes a blog here with updates on her newest finds.

Oh, I can't wait to visit again and again. It's good to be back in my ol' hometown.
