Armadale’s superb location offers a lifestyle of sheer urban sophistication. Literally every amenity you could need as at your doorstep, and the heart of the community – High Street – is adorned with boutique retailers and homewares stores that may make you wish you had left your wallet at home!

Rose Street Trading Co

A local wander along High Street will lead you to the Rose Street Trading Co.
Indulge your obsession with colour, cashmere, pearls and fabulous handbags…or if you’ve done all of that already, there’s also a checklist of basketware, linen napery, hurricane lamps and scented candles to get started on. The joy of adding some warmth and personality to your home is never too far away.

Market Import

Market Import sits hidden behind the bustle of High Street (enter via King’s Arcade) in the village-like backstreet of Morey Street. Offering a unique shopping experience that is a visual feast of colour, founder Barbara Kenny gained inspiration from her travels to Mexico, Italy and Spain. The result is a collection of traditional, eclectic pieces including ceramics, glassware, stunning fabrics, clothes and tableware (to name a few).

Chronicle residents are literally a stone’s throw from this beautiful, sense-inspiring store.


Nestled around the corner at 1001 High Street Armadale, Gaudion have a wonderful selection of French-inspired furniture, furnishings, art and wallpapers – not to mention a design service to help you on your way. Their specialty – making a house a home – is particularly helpful when downsizing from a family home to a modern apartment. Gaudion can assist in clarifying and creating your new home style.

Do you consider fresh florals part of the furniture? We vote yes! According to health professionals, bright, fresh cut flowers instantly improve your mood.
On Dr’s orders – head to Bud Flowers at 1016 High Street Armadale and drink in the beauty and aroma of their exquisite blooms. Take home something that lifts your spirits and if you’re lucky, resident pooch Cooper may even say hello or steal a pat.
