Photographer, Craig Green, captures feelings of peace & rejuvenation through nature. Looking through Craig's website is a visual feast of our beautiful South Coast. Prints can be purchased online & you buy Craig a coffee there too. Coffee money is spent at The Burrows where prints can be viewed in person ;)

Situated in the old Cheese Factory at Woodstock (Milton area) Milk Haus is a wholefoods cafe - with an emphasis on fresh, honest, simple fare, free of toxins, preservatives & anything artificial ... soo good

Beachside Emporium showcases local design and Australian-made products + has been a proud supporter of established + emerging artists from the South Coast - NICE!

Share the Dignity is close to our hearts. Tonya works with other 3 other volunteers to collect sanitary products & then distributes to women in need in the Shoalhaven. Once a year we collect handbags from the generous community & donate to local charitites to give to women in need prior to Christmas. In 2016 we collected over 1000 filled handbags for our local area. Now we're getting ready for a rip roaring November 2017 so we have heaps to donate at Christmas

Art, fashion, jewellery, shoes, homewares - this one is easily a favourite! Bombo Clothing founded by Mother Daughter duo is open everyday ... just give yourself time to look at everything

With a modern European influence South on Albany was summed up recently, by The Sunday Telegraph, as being 'a perfect mix of city standards & country ambience' ... oh yes - well done

Berkelouw Books at Bendooley Estate in Berrima ...  a haven of 2nd hand books, new releases & gorgeous hard backs. Lunch is a winner & if you so desire you can get married here too. Check it out at 3020 Old Hume Highway, Berrima 

Nourish Kitchen is on Albert Street, Berry. Michelle's philosophy is simple ' life is about sharing good food with good friends, sourced as locally and sustainably as possible, using the best kitchen equipment available' {sometimes it's referred to as 'the red shop'}. And BIG thanks for stocking gluten-free ..... as not much GF is nice/edible ;)

Chat to Julia from Skylla about hand dyed bespoke clothing using shibori and boro techniques - my denim jacket is on it's way to a 'new life'.  Also in store ... art, homewares and artisan made crafts

Dwell is loving the lovely Deer Willow at Kiama. Pop in for unusual and interesting homewares, casual but gorgeous clothing, jewellery, candles and more!  Fave item - the mango wood plates. Pop in and say hi to Vicki, Mary, Karen & Jo when you are next in town

We both agree that Gypsy Rose is our favourite blended tea from The Berry Tea Shop - it is described as an exotic blend for lovers of fragrance & mystery {love the tea / love the words}. Drop in and say hi to Cliff & Paulina .... have some cake 

The Hungry Duck on Queen Street in Berry has a fabulous array of fresh, local & organic produce that is blended to create a modern Asian cuisine. We've celebrated a couple of birthdays here with the 5 course banquet next visit we'll supersize to the 9 course Banquet ;)

We were thrilled to find the carpark area behind Dirty Jane's to now be filled with pots & plants, fire pits, tables and sculptures - no longer a carpark but a courtyard. Maureen Gardner has 'gone into retail' & established The Potting Shed  on the corner of Banyette and Bong Bong Street. Treasures for house and garden. 


Dirty Jane's in Bowral is a 'must see' for antiques, second-hand, the weird & the truly wonderful - Work Shops are on the agenda too

We couldn't go by without indulging in South Coast Style magazine every season, always filled with interesting stories, beautiful homes and recipes that actually make us want to get in the kitchen.  Of course what we love most is that it is all about the SOUTH COAST!!! PS this issue is their best yet!
