    Shopping on Buderim

    Well first there is a shop for men(you did not expect that did you?)...Curley's...right in the main street and, yes ,surrounded by shops for ladies as well as the incredible Purr-Dantik where there is jewellry and hats and scarves and evening bags, and staff who are so helpful when you are looking for just the right thing.

    RM Williams is right there too with boots and outdoor Australian gear. Want an Akubra? This is the place. Men and women country style.

    Now JA Boutique is along side with evening wear and fashion clothes for a day at the races. Top name designers. An unexpected wedding? Some more casual outfits too. Not far away is Soul Diva with a selection of mod stuff you could well love. See that is what is so good. The shops are different. Not rows and rows of sameness you get in shopping centres.

    . Close by is a shoe shop with heaps comfortable shoes and some shoes for walking and for dress up. For "Funky Shoes" you need to walk down to Middys complex. Just past the round-a-bout t.
    In the other direction near the Vet you might as well check out Daze& Nites for some lingerie. Nice quality but affordable. A coffeeshop...used to be Rosies in the good old days...the bootmaker are here as well.

    So we are back down at the Hub. Go up to the lights for a safe pedestrian crossing and come back till you are opposite JA Boutique and there you will find a great little courtyard...lovely greenery and table for Buderim Cafe guests. Now you have found Ginger's Boutique. I was there today and Alana had some new gear on display to tempt anyone with a bit of flair. Some thing for everybody here and at reasonable prices.

    Now there are two jewelers as well. One down opposite the tennis courts in Midi's complex. l.

    The other jeweler is in the Woolworths arena in the middle of town. .the shops change around a bit but so far you will still find something different ON Buderim.
    Megs is down in the Gloucester Centre....near Ritz (wonderful hair salon)...Megs has a certain following with her clothing line.

    What to buy: What to buy seemed to fit in with the various shops. I am sure you did not want a long list of separate tips: but you can buy for men and women...not much for kids but there is one little place up near the vet.

    What to pay: Prices are reasonable. Apart from Sale Time Buderim is not a "bargain basement" but the quality is better. JA Boutique is more up market.

    Julie-Ann Boutique Buderim.: Buderim's Funkiest Boutique

    by wise23girl Updated Jul 11, 2013

    Julie Ann with some funky stuff
    4 more images

    Julie Ann used to have two shops on the Sunshine Coast. The one in the main street on Buderim, is now her only boutique. You will remember Julie Ann's original one in Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba just down from the beach front ....but the area became unsuitable so now Buderim is the place to go.
    .
    The clothes you will see in the boutique are wonderful for going to the Races, Weddings and for Dancing. Now Julie Ann has added "Funky" to her range...and the locals are loving it!

    You should see how smart Julie Ann looks on race day!

    What to buy: You can find some great little casual outfits from time to time. Also the latest in pants and tops.

    There are some fashion shoes, some lovely jewelery, handbags and fascinators.

    You will find something very special there. Now you will find something funky there as well.

    Look for labels such as Elly M, Kiik, None the Richer, Toko, Moss and Spry, Gerry Shaw.

    I like the boutiques in Buderim for something different. So much nicer than in large shopping centres where if you are in one you are in them all and the clothes are all the same.

    Gloucester Centre: An Interesting Collection of Little Shops

    by wise23girl Updated Jul 3, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sorry but shops keep changing here....call in anyway

    This is really a little mall if you like to call it that. And because my favourite restaurant and tea house is here thought I should tell you about the rest. So after you have had your coffee go for a little browse.....and Susan is a great hairdresser.

    You will find The Ritz(as elegant as it sounds) which is a hairdressing salon plus they used to sell an array of funky clothes, jewellery, gifts and decor for your home. We bought some great Polish walking shoes and sandals there as well. My bootmaker said they were very well made and they are so comfortable.THIS PART OF RITZ NOW CLOSED

    Nearby there are a couple of beauty salons and a massage....very good massage with Julie at Bodyworks and Beauty. current in 2013

    This is also the site of the Bakers Oven which I tell you about in an "Off the Beaten Path"tip.

    Look at Millie's on Main Tip for more on this great little 'nook' Well the 'hot ' news is "House of Ritz' has bought Millie's business and big changes are coming. Now the House of Ritz is back to its former shop. and the corner is up for grabsThe economic bite is on!... .......2013 Now it is MEGS....a dress shop as well....Good luck Megs.

    Inside Millie
    1 more image

    Well I had quite a few photos of this lovely little centre. And these of Millies are only memories now. But look... The House of Ritz has arrived...And the House of Ritz in this corner shop will soon be NO MORE

    Economic downturn hits hard

    But Still Come Two of the Shops still there with clothes and jewellery and stylish hair dos....

    The charming boutique was right on the corner of the complex. You will see the location as you drive by...so a quick turn into Glouscester Road and park behind. Again you will find a lovely tea house to delight you after you have shopped or had your hair styled.

    You will find fashion clothes and jewellery to delight you. It is nice to have a choice ... the clothes at the Ritz are quite different...more on the funky side. But the new House of Ritz on the corner will be something different again.

    Buderim has a wide variety of clothes for ladies and one for men and a surf shop. So come and see us.

    Anyway have a peek at the photos for the sake of what 'used to be' and also the ones on the Gloucester Centre tip as well.

    What to pay: Prices are medium range by Australian standards.

    Buderim Ginger Shoppe: Buderim Special Treats

    by wise23girl Updated Nov 30, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    3 more images

    The Ginger Shoppe has moved around the corner into the main street.

    This well set out attractive shop saves you travelling all the way to Yandina for ginger...Buderim Ginger that is. But there is so much more on sale there now and I have just discovered how really good it is.

    Besides the shelves of prepacked food you will find a very well stocked 'deli'

    What to buy: Ice cream is very popular...nice and fresh served by the scoop. There are little jars of this and that suitable for you to take home. Special nuts in sea salt which we eat when driving. And the deli has block cheese which can be cut in front of your eyes. Not that prepacked stuff. Sheep and goats cheese as well.

    Recently I noticed some loaves of bread so on Fridays I am there early for 'spelt sour dough'

    What to pay: Just go along and check the price...buy what you can afford.

    The Natural Foodstore: Your Kunara Organic Oasis

    by wise23girl Updated May 15, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    4 more images

    Just down from Buderim, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

    You must not believe that everything in an 'organic shop' is necessarily healthy but I suppose a fair percentage is given the current thinking on healthful eating.

    This business is going from strength to strength...once a little shop on the roadside...then it was moved to larger premesis and now there is a most impressive complex (a market place ) with loads of parking . I think in the early days it was called 'Organic Oasis' and most of us still use that name.

    One unusual feature for 2012 are the 'bowsers' for the electric charging of cars...in lieu of petrol.

    Coffee is sold on the footpath outside...organic of course and a few plants.

    There is an organic clothing shop and a couple more shops yet to open

    What to buy: Well you can buy sough dough spelt flour bread...comes in Wednesdays....there is gluten free in the frig as well....and other varieties.
    You will find organic fruit and veg, bulk grains nuts and flour, natural skin care, toiletries,vitamins, books, cds, and gluten free, dairy free foods....and more.

    This will be so handy for you to know about.

    What to pay: A little more expensive than Woolworths I guess but a much healthier option. Prices keep changing so....browse and check the shop out for yourself.

    Store Trading Hours:
    Mon - Fri 8am - 6pm
    Sat 8am - 5pm
    Sun 9am - 5pm

    Cafe & Garden Centre Trading Hours:
    Mon - Sat 8am - 5pm

    Try a Rosewater Jam Drop

    This is a newly opened section of the Natural Foodstore Organic Complex just down the hill from Buderim proper in Forest Glen.(2012)...

    The complex is now called KUNARA ...2013

    Not only can you enjoy a 'cuppa' and lunch but there are homewares to browse and plants as well. As visitors you may not want to buy, but all the greenery makes nice surrounds as you sit on the lounge .

    The kitchen is open until 2pm but you can still enjoy a cup of coffee and cake until 4.00pm.
    (around here nearly all afternoon tea places close their doors at 3.30pm)

    I found a jam drop with a difference only yesterday....it was called a Rosewater Jam Drop

    What to buy: As I said you can buy food and drink, plants, and homewares.

    Cafe & Garden Centre Trading Hours:
    Mon - Sat 8am - 5pm (cafe closes 4pm now)

    Dayz and Nites: Lingerie to Exite You

    by wise23girl Updated Mar 4, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1 more image

    So you are on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia and you are looking for some special lingerie.....well I have just the place for you. First travel up the hill from Mooloolaba to Buderim main shopping area....head for the top of town (Burnett Street)....you will see The Tavern on your left and the Mall with Mountain View Vet, my very favourite bootmaker, Rob, and Daze and Nites on your right.

    You will be attracted by the very nice window display...today there was a gorgeous lavender nightie on waiting for some lucky lady.....

    They have a great selection of underwear......and even that sticky tape to hold your dress where it should be....Do you have one of those wayward dresses?

    What to buy: You will just love some of the night wear....some a bit too skimpy for me these days but one can still dream...but you will find you have other choices....a garment that will flatter yet not be too revealing.
    There is also a range of bras that do not have padding nor wire....and I am always looking for these.

    I actually do most of my lingerie shopping here...supporting the locals...and with easy parking, personal attention ...away from the maddening crowd

    What to pay: Well I think the prices are competitive....this is not a cheap rubbish shop though....well who wants rubbish...not me?
    So count your euros or your pounds or whatever....change them into Aussie dollars if the rate is good...and have a splurge on something beautiful
