Potts Point is home to some of the city’s trendiest lifestyle and Art Deco shops. The leafy stretch of Macleay Road flanked by towering 19th Century apartments has become a lifestyle destination for antique and craft lovers, or discerning shoppers looking for a luxurious makeover for themselves or their homes. Walking from Darlinghurst towards Macleay Road, hit Macleay on Manning first for its eclectic offering of jewellery, coffee table books, ceramics and homewares from such names as Missoni, Sonja Rykiel and Fornasetti. Macleay on Manning in particular is one gem store that is sure to inspire creativity and impulse to buy.

Several footsteps away find Becker Minty and prepare for a feast to all senses with the amazing line-up of art, furniture, antiques, fashion and jewellery from coveted brands, to bespoke dining specialising in exquisite cocktail style canapés at its store exhibitions.

Don’t miss WGSN favourite Potts Point Galleries, a new addition to Potts Point’s diverse shopping precinct.  This indoor market is home to the city’s finest antiques, stocking Art Deco, glassware, kitchenware, Chinese porcelain, furniture, vintage clothes, and a small collection of indigenous art.

Wrap up the walk with a stop at Planet Potts Point, and find there creative timber designs sourced from 70 craft makers in Australia, alongside ceramics, textiles, homewares and natural fibre. –Maria Mao Cui
