Our very own reporter of the latest coolest concept from The Oz, Andrew Ainscough came across this amazing store in Sydney called Sorry Thanks I Love You on his latest trip.
The concept is built around the reasons why people give. It places emphasis on handmade, authentically designed products from fresh flowers, gourmet food and craft beverages from around the world. There are bags from Danish rainwear company, food-inspired jewellery and hand-painted axes, the store also occasionally transforms in to champagne and oysters or whisky tasting nights.
The concept has grown from the online pure play retailer in to occupying a pop-up store in prime spot on Martin Place in Sydney. Caroline Ball, the owner came up with this idea when she wanted to send a bottle of whiskey to a friend in Tasmania. Spotting a gap, she capitalised on the artisan food, craft spirit and boutique floristry.
The artists are the mixture of experts and underground ones who work from studios from Tokyo to Tasmania.
