Take back some inspired homeware or your own crafts made at an Olive’s Nest workshop
There is an array of gifts for the home from heart-shaped vases to sugar bowls, coasters to cards made by artists packed into Olive’s Nest, and a space to let your crafty and creative side loose when you attend one of the regular workshops run by local artists.
Like many others, Gaynor backs the local makers and artists but if there is an artist she’d really like to get into the boutique, she’ll find out what’s not already available in the city so she can stock something different for customers. Next time you’re in, take a look at the characterful furniture – it’s all either been donated or recycled.
“I like to gather local artists to showcase them and I really get to know the product so that people can also find out a bit about the maker.”
