Part of the joy of visiting a country town is discovering its unique, hidden treasures. Visitors who happen across Tribe, in the creative “West End” of Castlemaine, are always delighted by what they find. From the friendly welcome of a local craftsperson behind the counter, to the delicious scent of aromatherapy-based skincare products that fills the rooms, Tribe is a nurturing experience of handmade loveliness. Showcasing 30 local makers, this delightful little vintage-inspired store promises a relaxed, ‘slow-shopping’ experience as you explore a diverse and ever-changing array of handcrafted treasures. One-off pieces of jewellery and clothing, unique textural homewares, craft materials to inspire your own creativity and a selection of precious natural playthings to make you wish you were a child again. Join their mailing list to find out about creative workshops throughout the year.
Open from 10am Tuesday to Saturday, 227 Barker St (just up from the train station), Tribe is a must-do on your next visit to historic and creative Castlemaine.
