Darwin's Hidden Boutiques
If you’re looking to go on a shopping spree to support our small businesses, the Air Raid Arcade and Carpentaria House have got you covered. Air Raid Records have got everything record-related. A good vibe and even better vinyls, they are “NT’s only second-hand vinyl store”, also selling new vinyls, turntables and more! In the same arcade you’ll find CLOTH by artist Anna Reynolds. With a focus on resourcefulness and recycling, her handmade clothing is constructed from upcycled fabrics and prints are one of a kind.
In Carpentaria House you’ll find Albertini Couture and Bowerbird Boutique, both have great quality, high end formal wear for any occasion. Albertini stocks beautiful vibrant gowns featuring Indigenous designs. Their fabrics are printed in remote communities all around the NT. While Bowerbird Boutique stocks samples, new and consignment fashion, all high end and ready for that fancy occasion.
