A Guide to Gorgeous – The Trove Story
Whether you’re a creative looking for a community or a connoisseur in search of a unique, high quality handmade gift; Trove is the place to go. A local co-operative of makers, designers and artists who all live within a hundred kilometres of Canberra; Trove provides a beautiful city retail outlet, open six days a week.
What is so special about buying handmade?
Visiting Trove is not just about the products, it’s an experience in its own right. The store is staffed by the members, so you will meet a maker every time you visit. When you buy a handmade item, you are buying something unique. It is impossible for two handmade products to be the same.
Handmade items have patina and providence. You see the maker’s marks, fingerprints in the ceramics, chisel marks in the timber, the stitches and brushstrokes. To give a handmade gift suggests a certain amount of thought and motivation and tells the recipient how much they are appreciated. Giving handmade, is giving love and a piece of the makers heart and soul.
