shopshoot - quintessential duckeggblue

Last month I visited the Sydney suburb of Balmain, home to the eclectic shop quintessential duckeggblue.

The shop is housed in a classic Sydney terrace house complete with ornate iron work and decorative tiles. So what's inside? A little bit of everything.

There are gorgeous lights, old chidren's toys, French tolix chairs, apothecary jars, club chairs. I could go on and on.

I found quintessential duckeggblue last year after I came back from my trip to Europe. I found some Hovis bread tins at Pedlars in London but didn't have the room in my backpack to take one home with me. When I did a search I found quintessential duckeggblue stocked them as well.



I also spied some familiar items like the Debra Bowness wallpaper and paper sculptures by Jo Neville of Paper Couture. Paper Couture was one of my first ever shopshoots, the Darlinghurst shop now sadly closed.

I loved the old club chairs and the gorgeous old display cabinets.

I arrived at the shop just as it was opening, so I had free rein before customers began arriving.

I think this wall contained my favourite display - tolix chairs and letterpress letters.

This customer obviously agreed with me.

Next time I need riding boots, I'll know where to go.

I see the store has changed it's display a little since my visit, so next time I'm in Balmain I'll be sure to drop by. Many thanks to the lovely Leah for putting up with me.

See you all next week,

Jillian
