Surry Hills Fashion and Shopping
Shopping in Surry Hills
Whether it's a limited edition print, a Japanese dress, a leather wallet from Sweden or an inflight bag, Surry Hills has a wealth of wares to discover. Shopping in this inner city enclave is all about sustainability, cool design, hard-to-find fashion and everything in between.
There’s plenty of great shopping to be found in Surry Hills. Whether you’re on the hunt for cutting-edge fashion, furniture, designer goods, quirky gifts, homewares or specialty stores, head to this inner Sydney commercial hub for a memorable shopping experience.
Snap up soft linens, rustic knick-knacks, minimalist kitchenware, handmade candles and other imported homewares at Shelf-life, an ethical trader of household goods. Everything they stock is designed and produced by artists and artisans and uses either environmentally responsible materials or ethical production methods. For handy travel goods, head to Flight001 on Crown Street, a retro-modern boutique selling cabin bags, guidebooks and other gadgets.
Writers can stock up on gorgeous stationery at Paper 2 on Crown Street, while sewers should head to The Fabric Store on Cooper Street for a diverse range of designer fabrics. Take a peek inside Follow Store, a design concept store on Crown Street, for art prints, contemporary jewellery, clothing and textiles, or nearby Collector Store, for one-off items, fashion and homewares.
There are plenty of vintage clothing and furniture stores to choose from, such as Grandma Takes a Trip, one of Sydney's premier vintage and retro boutiques with a range of meticulously-curated items from the 1950s to the 1990s. Many fashion boutiques in the neighbourhood double as homewares stores, but for specialty vintage furniture, have a look at Vampt Vintage, offering top of the range mid-century furniture in the heart of Surry Hills.
Visit the Surry Hills Markets, held on the first Saturday of every month, which are home to a wide range of vintage goods and second hand finds.
