Fenella Peacock’s boutique offers much more than just her gorgeous women’s clothing. The whimsical retail space sells delicate paper goods and hanging pots from C & Me Designs, luscious silk scarves from Perth textile designer Imogen Duxbury, and mega-knit hats and scarves by Fenella’s mum, Libby Peacock, also a designer.
Tacked onto the back of the shop is a small kitchen and kitschy courtyard filled with a jumble of bric-a-brac. There’s mismatched iron tables, hanging lanterns, a crumbly 1950s Passiona sign, a wood-fired pizza oven and a faux tree trunk supporting a rusty corrugated metal roof.
By day, the space functions as a cafe. By night it transforms into Jamel's Pizza, a casual eatery run by Fenella's husband. Jamel’s years spent perfecting the dough have paid off. Queues snake out of the door most nights for the gorgonzola, pear, walnut and spinach pizza. He also makes the some of the best gluten-free crust in town.
For no extra charge, large groups can dine at tables set up in the shop itself. It's a delight, feasting on pizza surrounded by beautiful clothes and fairy lights.
