Hidden behind a series of black, colonial-style windows, Little Salon is one of few stores to have nested on the Cutler & Co end of Gertrude Street.
Owner and designer Geniene Honey opened her first boutique in Collins Street, which also stocks a range of homewares, clothing and accessories, most under her own label Love. Quality fabrics form a clothing collection while animals and childhood friends inspire her range of wooden and sterling silver broaches and necklaces. All are displayed on or inside Edwardian wooden cabinets.
Cute babushka dolls will rescue the dreariest of mantelpieces and their toadstool peppershakers and chalkboard wall hangings are pretty and practical. Soaps, stationary and lamps make well-priced gifts and come Christmas, nativity calendars and other goodies help make the festive season just that.
Other labels include Skin and Threads, Secret Squirrel and bags by Nancy Bird.
