I love, love, love this store and it just keeps getting better.

I love the location, above a shop front on the corner of Knuckey and Cavenagh Streets.  It is bright and airy and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

There is bead shop incorporated within this store and there are a number of lovely beaded pieces of jewellery for sale on display and yes, you can touch and feel.  The prices are very reasonable and good quality pearl studs – yes, the real thing can be bought for $30.

They sell a great range of T2 Teas, tea canisters, tea sets from Japan and a friend of mine recently received tea and canisters as a birthday present from me and was chuffed.  I don’t think he goes there very often to buy tea, so it was a good gift and one that was appreciate by both he and his wife.

Also for sale is a range of lovely clothes.  As I am a size 18, there isn’t anything in the range that would fit me, but the quality of fabric and the construction of the clothes is of a high quality.  The clothing can be expensive, but for one off pieces to complement an existing wardrobe, definitely worth it.  There are also unique t’shirt designs for me – nothing crude of course, more witty, have a think fun shirts.  Perhaps bordering on making a subtle statement!

Also stocked here is the comprehensive range of Anna Chandler tiles in Darwin.  The range hasn’t been so good since Blazez closed.  Blazez introduced Darwin to Anna Chandler, I even have five of her flower series hanging in my kitchen (wedding present).  I love the new range that has been inspired by Asia, just don’t have anywhere to put it.  Damn – need to rethink that one.

Like Blazez, Elevated has a great selection of cards to choose from.  There are also different bits a pieces, some Asian inspired, that make for a lovely gift.

Definitely put this place on your regular shopping list, especially for gorgeous gifts.
