After 17 years in their original space on Hay Street, jewellery and giftware boutique Kul Kul is moving to the Rokeby Road hub, just next to Whisk Creamery.
In good news for lovers of boutique shopping, the new location will be double the size of its original, providing ample space to display their eclectic stock of jewellery, boutique clothing, and of course, dog-related giftware. The larger space allows for the selection to be expanded, with new jewellery from Spain to be sold for the first time in-store, joining the mix of jewellery suppliers from Israel, France, Mexico, Greece, as well as local Australian designers, such as erin.k. In a sign of high quality, all stocked jewellery is handmade.
Owner Cheryl Burton is keen to start fresh in the new location, changing the look of the boutique to a more organic, rustic style,
“I don’t want to move and just be the same shop. I want to reinvigorate Kul Kul”
Staying true to their new look, Cheryl has repurposed the trees from her backyard as the centrepiece for the new store. Using the trees to build wooden display shelves as well as in their original form for decoration, the store has a completely different vibe from its previous location. Plus, with an entirely glass shop-front, natural light pours in over the store to create a warm and vibrant shopping experience for all.
Cheryl has owned the store for the past 6 and a half years, deciding on a change in direction after holidaying from her job in pharmaceuticals. A conversation with her husband after one too many wines in Lake Como lead Cheryl to realise her passion in life was “animals, jewellery and shoes – in that order”, (sadly, no mention of her husband on that list) and if you pop in to the store, it’s plain to see those passions are reflected in her selection.
