Home Goods Store
“Just a little south of Margaret River on the corner of Bussell Highway and Shervington Ave is a unique place with a range of hand made products from hand-pured candles in a myriad of colours and candlelabras to wine barrels to lazy susans, cheese boards, fruit bowls, coffee tables, wine racks and lots more. Locally made timber products, predominantly made using oak wine barrels. We bought a lemon myrtle candle that has the most divine scent and pot rack made from wine barrels - you can see the red wine stains from inside the barrel which is a gorgeous rosy red - love it! Mind the witches flying by ;-)”

“Witchy, as known to locals, is just 10 mins south of Margaret River and is a much-loved town with a great bakery / cookie store - Cookies Galore - with free samples to try before you buy. Photo ops for kids with all the witch dummies in front of the roadhouse and the Margaret River Candle Company - one of our faves :-) ”
