Like all shops on th emountain this is also a craft shop. The thing is that each little shop has their speciality and for this one it was like stepping back in time to a time when you could get your lavender bags to hang in the wardrobe or other things from the era.
For all those "crafty" people and ones that wish to buy a unique gift that has been lovingly handmade, then the cottage is a must visit.
Walking along Gallery Walk, we went into every shop that was open, and that was all!
Just before entering the shop, the smell of lavender drifting out the shop smelt divine.
Inside was were lots of lovely gifts included handmade dolls, coathangers, gift cards, lamps, wall hangings and more, all handmade by people located in South Queensland.
Plenty of gifts to choose from.
Open 10-4pm, 7days a week
Nel's on the Walk is another shop we came across on Gallery Walk,
This one also is a gift shop, once again, has different items for sale from the other shops.
I rather liked the unique letter - boxes, made out of old can's into the shapes of Horse's, Cow's, and even a flying Pig!
“Granny Mac’s Store” .................Is full of home-made Fudge!
Yummy! The smell wafting out the shop enticed us to visit inside! We wandered around the shop, and eventually chose some varieties that sounded nice. Luckily, at the counter, we were given a free sample to try before we bought, I thought that was a good idea! Nice, but not the cheapest, with prices about $4 a packet.
Fudge can be cut and packaged to your requirements, and it can be mailed to anywhere in the world! There are over 80 varieties to choose from, and they are all made at the premises.
Want something different, then the Macadamia nut's are nice. There is a choice of raw, roasted and salted, and ones of different flavours, including honey, honey-sesame, to name a couple. Lollies you will remember from your childhood, Liquorice Allsorts, Lollipop's, Nougat and Nut Bars.
And still there was more...... For all those Ice Cream lovers, a large array of different flavours including a Swiss Gourmet range of ice creams and fresh fruit sorbets!
They also do meals including salad, pies, soups, scones and pancakes, cakes and biscuits, and these can be enjoyed on the verandah.
Delicious Fudge!......Coffee, Scones!.....Verandah Cafe!
Located on the Gallery Walk on Mount Tamborine, is this Shop.
All Australian Souvenirs! .......Icons from Downunder!
I didn't need anything, but I really enjoyed browsing in this shop. There were Aussie Akubra Hats, ones for the Summer and others made more for Winter, these Hat's last for ever, so are a good buy. The shop also had a good array of Australian Ugg Boots made out of Merino Wool. I love my Ugg Boots as they keep my feet lovely and warm in winter.
I saw many beautiful Australian stuffed Animal's and Bird's, some of them, like the Kookaburra, even laughed when you touched a certain spot! What a huge variety there was, actually, the best I have ever seen, as it included more unusual Animals, like the Quoll, Echidna's, Possum and Wombat. There were even the Aussie Blue Heeler stuffed Dog's for sale, oh, they were all so cute!
A nice gift for the Ladies, were the Aboriganal designed shopping bags, large and very nice, also small coin purses.
In the back room, were very nice Aboriginal paintings. You are not allowed photo's in here, but in the rest of the shop, they don't mind.
There was so much nice stuff in this shop, plus, the lady behind the counter was lovely, this is one shop I will return to again when I have Oversea's Visitor's.
What to pay: From cheap to expensive
I rather like looking at Cuckoo Clock's and a good place to see them is at the Cuckoo Clock Nest on Tamborine Mountain.
The shop has been located here for quite a long time, and as well as selling the Clock's, they do repair them as well.
My friend and I browsed around the shop, finding wooden toy's that we played with years ago. There were lots of nice Christmas Decoration's that are available all year round.
This shop isn't as big as the one at Crow's Nest, but still is worth a visit, especially if you are never going to make it to Germany. All Clock's are imported from Germany, so they are the "real thing!"
The shop is easy to find as it is a German Bavarian Chalet with an authentic waterwheel, you can't miss it!
What to pay: Quite expensive!
Do you like watching time go by? Then this is the shop you want. It has so many clocks it would be hard to loose time .If you love clocks you will love this shop.when you walk in you hear the clocks ticking away and on the hour you get the pleasure of hearing numourous chimes, dongs and "cuckoo" going off.
To any clock lover it would be music to their ears
What to buy: clocks, dolls, wooden toys,
What to pay: They arent cheap
For those with a sweet tooth enter this shop and feel your mouth water. They had so many varieties of fudge it was hard to decide which ones to get. BUT you can try any ones you like before you buy.which of course makes it even harder to decide. I took a photo of the guy who served us.and then asked him if it was ok if I put it on my website.he was so excited he gave me two little chocolates for free.
What to buy: all sorts of sweets, fudge, nuts, souvenirs. And when you get sick of looking sit for a nice cup of coffee.
What to pay: I paid $2.50 for 100gram of Fudge. a little dear but hey it was nice.
this shop would be any little girls delight. it was full of fairies things from little dressese, wings and even the fairies themselves. When I tried to take a photo of the interior the little fairies kept pushing me so I couldnt get a clear photo. sorry about that...
I got a lot of pleasure browsing in this shop. It offered a lot of craft goods such as patch work quilts hand made teddy bears, dolls. Home made jams in many varieties could be bought It had a real country feel to it.
What to buy: Anything crafty for the home
What to pay: Depends really on how mauch you want to spend. :)
This shop has a lot of variety . It is a great place to look for the "little ones" in your family.
What to buy: Nick nacks for the kids ( or those kids at heart) wind chimes kites ect
What to pay: the price varies depending on what you buy
I must make a shamefaced confession: although I’m happy to be a tourist, I’m really no shopper. Maybe you are. I suspect about half the world falls into the “shopper” category, the rest are “non-shoppers” – with the division broadly defined by gender. An exception: interesting food will always tempt me.
What to buy: The people in Granny Macs Store had just the bait for me, a choice of macadamia nut specialties. Macadamia nuts were originally native to the forests of this region and, in my childhood were usually known as Queensland Nuts when they grew in the back yard. Either way, the thought of a pack of fresh nuts spiced with wasabi was too much to resist. They were fresh, tangy and generally excellent, if not inexpensive.
What to pay: In the Australian context, $7.70 for 180gm of nuts is not cheap - but they were good enough to represent good value.
This is the shop you go to when you are looking for ceramics , pottery or the likes.
What to buy: The local craft is very good , but expect to pay a little extra.
What to pay: Depends what you want to buy . the prices vary
