The Corner Booth
This Annandale boutique has a surprisingly extensive range of goodies.
This independent boutique on the corner of Booth and View Streets is where you come when you know you need to buy a gift, but you're not yet sure what to get. It started life as a children's toy and clothing store in 2002, but five years ago it broadened its range to include women's fashion, homewares, beauty products and indoor plants and pots.
It still has kids' toys and a cute selection of baby clothes, swaddles and teething toys, but if you're not here to purchase a baby shower gift (and even if you are), you'll find Australian made products like Bondi Wash body wash, Leif kakadu plum hand cream and hand-poured soy candles from Maison Blanche.
You'll want to run your hands over the soft blankets and quilts from Kip and Co, Indus, Citta Design and Jamie Kay; finger through the racks of dresses and shirts from Elk the Label; and open every Gentleman's Hardware pocket tin of miniature tools. Whatever the occasion, there'll be a gift here that fits the brief.
