Have you tackled your Christmas list yet? Time is ticking on getting those prezzies wrapped and under the tree, but Vic Park has plenty to discover for all your gifting needs – from unique vintage finds, sustainable wares or your new favourite summer read.
Support local this festive season with a visit to one of Vic Park’s many Christmas markets. Optus Stadium’s Christmas Festival is back and bigger than ever, taking over Stadium Park with an absolutely huge range of stallholders and festive fun – and plenty of food trucks to keep you fuelled for your shopping, of course!
The Carlisle Collective will also get into the festive swing of things with the return of their charming Christmas Twilight Fair. Local makers and gourmet artisans will sort out your Christmas list, and the licensed bar and food trucks will ensure it’s a fun night out!
Unwrap Archer Street celebrates not just the festive season but the revitalisation of Carlisle’s town centre. Enjoy some local live music while perusing market stalls or getting involved with the kid-friendly activities!
Sustainable Silly Season
It’s easy to get caught up in the excess and excitement of the season, but this year we’ll be trying to give a little more sustainably! Urban Revolution has everything your nearest and dearest could need to transform their life into something a little more sustainable – whether it’s a rather chic stainless steel lunch box or a composting starter kit!
Continue the green theme with a visit to Green Bunch. Bring a gorgeous bunch of flowers to your next festive gathering, a lush houseplant to the person who has everything, or even some seeds to brighten up their garden in spring. While you’re there, you can even pick up a coffee and little treat for yourself – you deserve it.
Unearth A Vintage Treasure
Vic Park? More like Vintage Park! Hit the Vic Park Vintage Trail and pick up something truly unique from one of the many vintage stores in the area. Horatio And Agatha’s Vintage Supplies, The Eclectic Squirrels, The Vintage Sparrows (pictured below) and Jojo’s Vintage Pop all have delightful wares for everyone, whether you’re looking for a stylish mid-century furniture piece, a stunning tea set or the perfect kitsch vase.
Pair your unique vintage treasure with the perfect album from Rhubarb Records to match the vibe – or go all out and upgrade their audio options with a brand-new turntable! If they’re more of a reader, hit up Crow Books for the latest bestseller or a hard-to-find title – and pick up a gorgeous new cookbook while you’re at it… Christmas lunch needed a bit of an overhaul anyway, right?
With all those festive parties coming up, have you got your outfit sorted? Woven & Willow has got easy-breezy Christmas style on lock, from lunch-friendly linens to that perfect take-it-anywhere bag.
If you’ve been on a Marie Kondo rampage through your home, you can understand the desire to cut back on stuff this festive season. If you’re keeping things minimal, give the gift of a delicious experience instead! Vic Park business Up Close and Local curate boutique tours to show off the best of Perth’s eating, drinking and scenery – like an Asian Street Food Walking Tour that includes many of Vic Park’s best foodie favourites.
