Animal lovers of Melbourne — the hunt for pet supplies that are both stylish and sustainable just got a whole lot simpler, now that a sweet little store called Nice Paws has set up shop in Fitzroy.
Off the back of a successful online store, the Smith Street pop-up is open now until the end of March and it's got just about everything you need to keep that four-legged mate of yours living the good life. Inspired by their own pooch Wanda, Nice Paws owners Bec and Nelson have sourced a careful curation of pet-focused wares that are both good-looking and good for the planet.
There's a focus on clever, contemporary design as well as sustainably produced pieces, with most products either extra durable, made from recycled materials, handcrafted, small batch or all of the above. It's the sort of gear that'll go the distance, while totally complementing the rest of your home. You'll find elegant feed bowls, boutique grooming products, handmade toys, a range of dapper leads and collars, and pet beds that won't ever look scruffy.
Nice Paws even has feed-time sorted, slinging a selection of 100 percent Australian owned, sourced and produced pet food and treats.
Find Nice Paws at 65 Smith St, Fitzroy, open Wednesdays through Sundays until the end of March.
