Look what is popping up in Kadina!

Something exciting has been going on in an empty shop in Kadina and today the doors opened for the first Kernewek Lowender Pop up Shop. A group of local women are all showcasing their beautiful products.There really is something for everyone -  homewares, jewellery, hair accessories, clothing, wall art, decor and local party plan representatives and more.

Tickera businesswomen Carolyn Bussenschutt of 'Bussy Bees' put the word out a few months ago asking other local home based businesses if they would like to be involved in a pop up shop, after telephone calls and numerous emails May finally rolled around and an excited group of vendors have transformed an empty shop into a mini market. 

Bright and colourful hair accessories by mother daughter duo Josie & Carrie (Craft by Button), beautiful wares from Bussy Bees, stunning wall art by Mango Ink and clothing by Style QC and Blank Canvas. You can also place orders with The Body Shop, Lorraine Lea Linen and Melauca. Later in the week Seek & Style will be popping in with their absolutely gorgeous range of cushions, prints and other decor. 

I am excited to be dipping my toes into the workforce for a week selling my hand painted jewellery as well as Phoenix cards, and I am thrilled to be able to share products from two of my favourite South Australian businesses -  Fairydust Stylish Stationery prints (LOVE!!) and LillyMOO Makings accessories.

There is so much on this week for the Kernewek, leading up to the parade & fair in Moonta on Friday and the parade & Village Green Fair on Saturday in Kadina and the cavalcade of cars on Sunday. 

We hope to see you pop in to visit our Pop Up!

Great food and coffee on the Copper Coast and Yorke Peninsula

After seeing a blog post recently about great coffee in Adelaide, I thought I'd out my own list together of great food and coffee in my local area, just in time for the Kernewek Lowender if you are visiting for that!


Kadina has lots of great places to eat & drink and you can get anything from healthy salads, rolls, pasties, risotto or pub fare.

For great coffee pop in to see Shane & Zella on the corner of Digby and Graves Street (opposite the town hall). It might be one of the smallest cafes in town but it has so much character and atmosphere and there are so many vintage books and photos to look at while you are waiting. 

Raw Eleven on Taylor Street is another favourite of mine, their food is sensational, great coffee and healthy sweet treats galore. The atmosphere is great and the furniture looks fantastic. My favourite food is the Snickers slice - YUM! 

For traditional Cornish pasties there are four bakeries in town:

Cornish Bakehouse, 25 Graves St
Cousin Jacks, 24 Taylor St
Chappys Place, Graves St
O'Laughlins, Goyder St


I have two favourites in Moonta, firstly Nook & Nourish. There is so much to love about this little place, the atmosphere, the furniture, the food is divine and Kristen and her staff are all so lovely. They have vegan Cornish pasties too - win! Their coffee is sensational and you will want to pop in everyday of your visit just so you can try everything! 

I also love Henry on George, which as the name suggests is on the corner of Henry & George streets. The atmosphere is great, the rustic furniture gorgeous and their sweets cabinet - DROOL!!!

Bakeries for Cornish Pasties :
Nicks Bakery, George St
The Cornish Kitchen, Ellen St


If you have time to explore the peninsula there are two great spots in Maitland, Vintage Country Reflections, great coffee and so many vintage finds!

Tindi Tindi tables across the road also has lovely food, coffee and gifts. 


The newest place to open in our area - Meraki Sole - GORGEOUS!! You will need time to check out all of the stunning gifts, the coffee is delicious and the food looks amazing! 

We are truly so, so lucky to have so many gorgeous eateries in the area, there are bakeries, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, you will find something to suit everyone in the family!

Enjoy your stay on the Copper Coast and drive safely xx
