This month we celebrate 15 years of retailing in Annandale.
As a family run business, we started life back in 2004 as part of a group of speciality boutique stores with a focus on gifts and children's wear. Over the years we expanded and evolved to meet the changing demographics of the Annandale area.
On first appearance our store looks more like a quaint glass 'booth'. But, expands into two levels of rooms, each offering their own unique range of giftware. The lower level focuses on apparel, toys and baby gifts- a climb up the stairs reveals more fashion for women, and a curated collection of apothecary, gifts and homewares.
How clever are the team behind the Squared who have created a beautiful range of educationally themed art for kids walls.. Shop at our shop in Annandale for squared posters or visit our online store for the full range, with free shipping for orders over $100
