It seems that almost all my recent posts are about Cath Kidston! I simply love her stuff, but it is a pity that it is so difficult to find it locally. Cath Kidston is based in the UK and has yet to open a store in Australia. Maybe my desperate plea for her cute accessories and constantly badgering on her Facebook and Twitter wall she will finally realise that there is a potential market here in Australia! Ok…so if she was to take her store down under, I wouldn’t keep my hopes up and think she would settle in Perth. So for the time being I did my research and found a cute, kitsch shop in the heart of Fremantle called Corner Store.
Many gifts, home wares, books and more are still on sale
Corner Store has currently moved next door, literally! They have set up a new shop on Market Street right next to their old location. The previous shop is still opened as a ‘SALE’ shop, they are selling items from 20%-50% and it is a good time to pick up some killer bargains. I dragged my family along to take advantage of the sale and got some lovely shots of the store. Once you walk through the doors of Corner Store, there is a childlike playfulness and a burst of colour emphasised by their white interiors. International brands of kitsch, modern homewares and designer accessories are displayed so gorgeously you eyes simply dart through the store because there is too much loveliness to absorb! Plus a price tag that you fall in love with!

I was hoping to find the Cath Kidston Blackberry Cases in the shop, on sale for $15 but they must have ran out of stock. However their online shop is still selling them, so I may decide to purchase one through there. I am just happy to stumble upon this sweet little store and hope to make another trip into Fremantle to take another wander around their Sale shop. They have recently advised on their Facebook Page that they will be keeping the Sale shop open for another month. So it might be wise to get in before it closes down at the end of July!
