Offering retro-inspired clothing for kids, this Newtown store can’t be beat. Opened by designer Celia Morris, Shorties is filled to the brim with locally handmade products and an eclectic range of new and vintage finds. Morris’ own label, Dragstar Kidswear, is sold here exclusively and shares the space with a fabulous range of toys, gifts and décor. Catering to newborns right up to fourteen year olds, it’s no surprise Shorties is regarded as one of the best kids stores in Sydney.
Sydney’s alternative culture is in full swing in Newtown. Yes, things are certainly never boring in this cool and quirky neighbourhood: cafés, bars and boutiques sit wall-to-wall down King Street, sharing space with the iconic Dendy cinema and Enmore Theatre.
