Creative Native Perth: Aboriginal Art and Didgeridoos in Perth
Creative Native in Perth City is simply an amazing store. Definately the highlight of my shopping and indigenous experience in Perth. I loved this shop and bought most of my souveniers from here except for the bulk cheap stuff that I wanted to give away as freebies.
What I loved about this shop was the whole experience. I bought both my unique piece of aboriginal art and my authentic didgeridoo here as well. The staff were nice and the prices were suprisingly cheaper then the other shops in town. What I noticed was this shop had mostly authentic souveniers made in Australia, where as all the other shops in town had really cheap chinese souveniers.
Mainly I loved this shop because of the instore experience. The staff were friendly and ahd a lot of knowledge about Aboriginal Art and culture. The only thing about the shop is it is hard to spot because its located downstairs in Forrest Chase. Definately a must if you are looking for quality art and souveniers in Perth.
What to buy: Aboriginal Art, Didgeridoos, Souveniers, Gifts
What to pay: Suprisingly cheaper then all the other shops and mostly Australian made.Related to:

- Museum Visits
Perth has two malls, Hay Street and Murray Street Mall. This is Murray Street Mall. Woolworths on the right hand side is the place to go for some food shopping if you are like me and don't want to spend all of your holiday money on expensive restaurants. Up ahead on the left hand side is a fantastic coffee place - Merchant....a good recommendation for the best coffee in town.
"Aussie" - E-Shed Market: Cheap souvenior
If you want to buy souvenior, there is a shop called "Aussie" in E-shed market, Fremantle. It is near motor museum.
The price for the souvenior are cheaper compare to those shop in fremantle market. Try not to buy it at those shop in town. The price will be much expensive.
The men can drink beer & listen to live band outside the building during weekend while waiting the women to shop
What to buy: Koala bear / Kangaroon Tissue box, T-shirt, hoodies, keychain, cute road sign for car etc
What to pay: Depend on what quality you are looking for. You need to pay more if you want better quality.
AUSSIN: E shed market
This is a very huge store in Eshed market. It is near to the entrance after you come out from the food section of the Eshed market.
You can get Perth T-shirt for kids as cheap as 3 for AU$10, 1 for AU$5. Pack of 12 Kola bears clip as cheap as AU$1.25.
Golden Boronia Nougat can be bought at a candy store next to AUSSIN at 1 kg pack for $24 or 2 kg for $46.
I found a lot of stalls in Eshed market selling kids stuff whereby we can get them in Singapore makeshift stall at half the price that they are selling at E shed market.
What to buy: sourveniors
Best and Less store: Best and Less store
I found this store in Fremantle. If you are familiar with ROSS, TJ Maxx or Marshalls in the states. Best and Less is of similar concept.

Harbour Town - For Serious Shopaholics :o)
However if you are into serious shopping and looking for a bargain (other than weekend markets of course) then you need to go to Harbour Town.
Harbour Town is located just west of the city centre on Wellington Street. Easiest way to get there is to catch the yellow cat from Wellington Street & get off at the Harbour Town stop.

City Gems: Gorgeous Jewelry
I love this shop. It has gorgeous costume jewelry that is not too expensive. I bought this lovely bright green/blue necklass that really stands out.
