25/11/15Retail Therapy 25 November, Bali Advertiser
Housewives on Fire - food & fabulous finds!
This open style rustic whitewashed space just has to be visited! It’s a bit like stepping into someone’s home, not an ordinary home mind you, it’s a place, a space where you just might see someone quite fabulous? maybe a cross between Miss Havisham meets Sophia Loren?!
It’s original, quirky, fun and a bit mad! it has a great ambience (old school jazz is a background constant) with indoor areas flowing through to outdoors making a perfect setting to sit, work, read, coffee & cake with friends, gossip and naturally to shop!
The menu reads casual café dining with some classic favorites your great old Aunt or a loving Mother would make. With a signature blend of coffee, some iced-tea or granita you will be set to beat the Bali heat!
Make a reservation for a Vintage inspired High Tea in the garden surrounds (there’s a once a month high tea for Mothers & children) In fact, this is a great place to hold special activities, birthdays, baby showers, workshops & small events.
There is a total abundance of product to peruse and buy for the entire family; off beat, wacky, eccentric, it’s a total treasure trove, a hunt for the unconventional (they do a good bit of conventional too) product changes constantly (as the saying goes, if you like it, buy it!)
Some ideas for the gift giving season fast approaching are, Art on view by Irene Hoff, one-off furniture pieces, spa products, jewelry from Nepal & Tibet, tribal objets along with super large colorful hats, oh yes flowers to pin to the hat of course… all sorts of fashion for guys, gals & young’uns even a ‘Mans Corner’ that is proving popular where they can enjoy a game of backgammon or chess while waiting for their lady or man…
