It may be best known for the Saturday morning markets but Parap Shopping Village is a worthy shopping destination mid-week, too. Check out Country Classics (4/38 Parap Road; +61 8 8981 3377) for boutique wares from labels like Metalicus and Sacha Drake. Mad About Coffee and Tea (Shop 2, Parap Place; +61 8 455 020 014) sells natural coffees and teas, as well as pretty cups, teapots and the like. Other gifts and souvenirs can be found at Nomad Art Gallery (1/3 Vickers Street; +61 8 8981 6382), which sells limited-edition prints, textiles and crafts by Indigenous artists. Refuel at Laneway Specialty Coffee (4/1 Vickers Street; +61 8 8941 4511) and then pick up a little gourmet treat from the deli or wine cellar at Parap Fine Foods (40 Parap Road; +61 8 8981 8597).
