Today I am going to share with you a gem of a place! While I was in Darwin and Kakadu, I popped by a number of souvenir stores but none had fabric or prints as pretty as these. Well, to me at least. I really love that these prints have a modern and vibrant feel to them.
So you can imagine how excited I was when our tour bus (you can see the reflection in the image above) stopped right outside the Aboriginal Fabric Gallery during our time in Alice Springs. We had less than an hour to roam the little town and well, I spent most of my time in here.
I think the time we had ended up being too long for the guys and too short for the girls. Some girls were seen running from store to store (I won't name any names here). Who says there isn't anything to buy from NT? Have you seen this shopping post by Ai Sakura and this shopping post by Sakura of the Ninja Girls?
Look at the bevy of materials. It took me a while to decide what I wanted but this is where I spent most of my holiday money. Although the shop is quite small, they stock a wide variety of Aboriginal Fabrics. Perhaps the largest in the world! So the good news is that they also have an online store so do pop by and check them out if you would like to get your hands on some of their charming fabric.
