Step into retail heaven when you discover Tenterfield’s main shopping strip along Rouse Street.

If you’re starting at the northern end of town, you might choose to kick-start your expedition with at quality coffee and homemade treats at The Potting Shed while you browse their beautifully curated mix of plants, plant pots, gardening tools and ornaments, homewares and gifts. While you’re there, ask them about their sister store Gather & Yarn (just down the road), which sells divine furniture and homewares.

Next stop: Ruben & Flax, where you’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a feature page of an inspirational home styling magazine. Precious ornaments, vases and homewares, coffee table books, candles, body products, unique gifts, plush rugs, throw blankets, and decorative cushions, are just a taste of what you’ll find here. The gift wrapping is also totally on point.

Whether you like to shop sustainable, eco, and healthy products for yourself or need to buy for someone who does, drop in to Go Vita Tenterfield Health that stocks an amazing range of sustainable health and wellness products. Here you’ll find products such as quality whole foods, vitamins and supplements, natural cosmetics and body products, non-toxic house and home products, and specialty items.

On the next corner heading south (Cnr Rouse & Manners Streets), you’ll find The Corner Life & Style, Store and Cafe – a popular gathering place for those who love to indulge in the experience of shopping and sumptuous cafe dining. Meander through the chic and contemporary collection of homewares, gifts, fashion, jewellery and accessories. From the cafe, enjoy breakfast, lunch or something decadent in between.

Next, pop over to Mitre 10 Tenterfield on the opposite corner heading south and shop their range of practical homewares before following the footprints inside that lead you to a grand old staircase. When you reach the top, you’ll be in awe of a completely different space, which is that of Make It Tenterfield – a unique artisan maker-space. Talk about collaboration! You could easily spend hours here and will likely meet some of the local makers themselves who take turns in welcoming visitors and running creative workshops.

There’s so much more to experience in between these stores but it’s also great to jump in the car and head off the beaten track a little…

White Cottage Flower Farm is only a few blocks away (193 East Street), but you’ll feel like you’ve made a quick visit to the English countryside as you make your way down the garden path to a picturesque white cottage in the middle of a garden. This place is a photographer’s dream! Spend time browsing vintage and farmhouse wares and fresh flowers. Open 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Sunday or by appointment.

Mandy at White Cottage also hosts hands-on creative floral arrangement workshops, which is the perfect way to spend a few hours with good company in the stunningly beautiful glasshouse space. This experience would make the perfect gift for the floral-inspired creatives in your life.

And if you’re keen to explore the countryside (or perhaps it’s on your route home), venture north along Mount Lindesay Road to Liston, where you’ll discover the lavender-filled grounds of Aloomba Lavender and can shop all things (you guessed it) lavender!
