My partner and I took a road trip to Sydney (from Melbourne) via the NSW south coast a few weeks ago which took us right past two of our regional NSW stockists. I was excited to visit The Tree House Connection in Ulladulla as I’d met the owners Emily and Rosie at Life Instyle and they had given my sister and I a detailed description of the shop they were just about to open. I recalled them mentioning live music, community mindedness, eco goodness, a cafe and of course beautiful products! We pulled up outside and as if on cue, a band was making beautiful music on the front verandah. People were sitting in the shade of a lovely big tree out the front and the cafe was buzzing on the inside. We got ourselves a coffee and sat down to listen to the The Kabinets – the very cool, delicate sounding band making the beautiful sounds on the deck!
It was a quick stop off but we left with a CD, overdue caffeine hit, some lovely photos and a smile. The Tree House Connection is a real gem! Then we continued north to Nowra in the hope of popping into Shady Fig, another stockist, gorgeous florist and gift shop, however unfortunately we were too late and it was closed. We did peek through the windows and the styling inside was stunning, shame we missed it!
