I really am a bad Sydney-sider. I continue to write blog posts that start with a “I can’t believe this place has been under my nose the entire time” type vibe. It’s sad but it’s true, and it happened to me once again recently as I was strolling down Bourke Street in Surry Hills and saw the flora outside Garlands calling my name. I stopped for a moment, ensured my heart was still beating and high-tailed it in there – camera in hand, as always.
The Sydney CBD is inundated with places to eat and bars to drink at, but what’s been missing for quite a while is the presence of boutique stores you usually find scattered about the Eastern Suburbs (or down in Melbourne, for that matter). Things changed very recently when The Aparttment opened its doors, giving city dwellers the chance to immerse themselves in one-of-a-kind clothing, homewares, art and accessories. Brace yourselves, Creatives, this one’s a goodie!
