Sydney Road Street Party 2019

Story of Things

Once upon a time… Three creative’s with a passion for the unique stories of Australian design and it’s creators established a go-to, thoughtfully curated and styled marketplace, streamed straight to your living room, office or beachside paradise, and unlike anything you have visited before. Together they have crafted a covetable collection of unique goods, home wares and accessories created by Australian creators, and shared their stories. Ethically made. With a touch of sparkle. Brought to life through considered curation and wonderfully created visual stories, our modern digital magazine at Story of Things will give you the chance to meet the creators, have a peak inside their world and buy a single, beautifully crafted piece, or take your cues for a family of treasures. It means they do all of the hard work for you, so you can sit back with a cup of tea (or a glass of wine) while they guide you through their collection. The hardest thing you’ll have to do is decide when to stop adding to cart. Here at Story of Things provenance is important. The story of the item is important. The story of the creator is important. The story of us is important. If who you bought it from and where is as important as what you bought, Story of Things is a part of your story too. They  believe that beauty is not only in the things we have, but most importantly in the Story of Things. storyofthings.com.au read more
