Manyung Gallery

Art is a way of life for gallery directors Sharyn and David Wemyss-Smith. It’s their day long joy, obsession & torment. They pride themselves on showcasing contemporary art by artists from across Australia (& the Pen) from three gallery spaces in Sorrento, Mornington and Mt Eliza.

Flinders in the past 12 months has undergone a renaissance with the addition of galleries, restaurants, cafes and bars but a standout over the years has been Flinders Shed.

Inconspicuously tucked between two art galleries, this family-owned boutique - run by mother and daughter team Chris and Nat Lawrance, Flinders Shed has created something of a cult following as the boutique is known for showcasing independent designers and is widely considered a haven for those seeking hard-to-find labels.

Little Alpaca

Trudy Baker's 'Little Alpaca' boutique is almost as endearing as the collections of wonderfully soft luxury fibres she stocks. To us, it's a one-stop natural fibre destination. It's the kind of store that specialises in original products with traditional craftsmanship designed by true creatives, and that's what makes it tick. Trudy stocks elegant, hand crafted women's & men's fashions. All products are made with the highest of standards. The fibres in the shop are always soft and easily worn against the skin, and you will find alpaca, merino, possum, cashmere, mohair, silk, cotton, and linen.

Farrell’s Bookshop

To us, Farrell’s Bookshop is everything Jen Campbel describes and more.  Currently celebrating their 40th year of service in the heart of Mornington, Farrell’s was founded in 1978 by Roy and Liz Farrell, who set up the shop initially in Mornington’s Woolworth’s building. Today you can find it on the corner of Main and Barkly Street and has recently undergone a significant transformation - get in there, good will come of it, we promise.
