Trove is little off the beaten track at Gold Creek and you have to search to find it, but it’s worth the effort. By Aine Dowling
A selection of art and hand-made at Trove, 7 O’Hanlon Place, Gungahlin (Gold Creek Nicholls)
Hidden away from the myriad of shops and cafés that surround The Abbey, Trove is across the road and in the direction of the Dinosaur Museum and sits among a small, but select, couple of cafés, a small craft shop, and a photographic studio.
A collective of artists, creators, inventors, and makers, Trove deserves more patronage than it actually gets. Here’s a little look at what Trove has to offer.
Fiona Hill: artist and painter—view more images at LFW Your Canberra—Fi’s Art House
JAC Designs: stunning upcycled jewellery made from spoons and copper piping
Creations by Holmes: beautiful wooden accessories, toys, home wear, and those gorgeous rocking horses—one of which is donated each year to a local Canberra hospital to assist with fundraising
Ambience: deliciously fragrance candles, oils and melts
Wombat and poss: gorgeous selection of hand-made clothing and toys for babies and children
What I Made: an eclectic mix beautiful fabric dolls for kids (and grown-ups!) and terrariums
So next time you’re at Gold Creek take a little side trip to visit this treasure Trove—you’ll love it!
