Known for its cool coastal vibes, Sydney’s Northern Beaches is also home to some shopping hotspots. And who better to spill on the best beachside retail haunts than local and OneTeaspoon founder and creative director Jamie Blakey?

Best for a designer splurge

Myer at Warringah Mall has a great range of Australian and international designers such as Free People, Calvin Klein, Stella McCartney, Preen and McQ by McQueen – all in the one place. It’s perfect for purchasing a special designer piece.”

Condamine Street and Old Pittwater Road, Brookvale 

Best for streetwear

“Our OneTeaspoon store in Avalon is my favourite place to shop (for obvious reasons!). The store stocks a mix of ready-to-wear, denim and basics. Mamapapa is also beautiful and the interiors are epic. The small boutique stocks an eclectic mix of Parisian womenswear and high-end kidswear.”

OneTeaspoon: 23/11-13 Avalon Parade, Avalon Beach

Mamapapa: 11/20 Avalon Parade, Avalon Beach

Best for jewellery

Natalie Marie Jewellery has a beautiful collection of handmade jewels – particularly the vintage collection with unique one-offs. The store itself is like a blank canvas – clean and white – letting all the jewels speak for themselves.”

11-13 Avalon Parade, Avalon Beach

Best for vintage

Vampt Vintage Design sources special furniture from around the world and revamps and restores all the pieces in-house, so you’re buying something that can’t be found anywhere else. I’ve found so many incredible pieces there – each time I go in I find something totally different.”

358 Barrenjoey Road, Newport

Best for homewares

Mark Tuckey in Newport is my first stop when I’m looking to update my home or the office. His simple style and recycled timbers work perfectly with the coastal vibe of the Northern Beaches and the showroom is beautiful to visit for inspiration. It’s got you covered for every room in the house, stocking a range of beds, dining tables and coffee tables.”

Best for a gift

Table Tonic in Avalon has an eclectic range of global treasures so it’s my go-to to find the perfect gift. The store itself has a rad Moroccan feel and has a great selection of cool clutches and bags.”
