A little while back I bumped into a girl and we had this ‘waaaait… I know you don’t I?’ moments and we worked out that we went to primary school together. While we were catching up on the last 15 years, it came out what I do for a living and in a crazy coincidence it turns out she was already planning to contact the person behind Akimbo!
You see, Stacey was in the process of getting ready to open a new shop Mockingbird Lounge: a second-hand bookstore and cafe also selling gifts and stationery. She even has a board game night and several book clubs on the go.
With its pre-loved furniture and books, mismatching vintage teacups and an abundance of homemade slices and biccies, it’s as cosy and familiar as your nanna’s house. A refreshingly genuine change to those hipster hangouts, if you ask me.
Mockingbird Lounge is located at 63a Broadway, Glenelg South in Adelaide.
