Curate your home with unique pieces from Three Donkeys Home
Opening at Long Jetty this Saturday, 26th of November
Roy and Joanne have owned Three Donkeys Wholefoods Cafe in Wamberal for 5 years. Named in reference to their three kids, it has been a hidden gem but is now emerging through the relocation of the Three Donkeys homewares boutique to Long Jetty.
Joanne (an OG Coastie!) opened the store to continue sharing their wholesome way of living not just through food but through the soft furnishings we surround ourselves with and the spaces that we call home. Inspired by the feeling you get visiting small country towns like Berry and Bowral, plus her own love for flowers, linen, interior design, and upcycled furniture.
“I want to help people create a space that’s suited to them through the brands and pieces that we stock,” Joanne said.
You’ll instantly feel the rustic farmhouse vibe from the old European doors to the custom counter sourced from the infamous Dirty Janes Antique Market in Bowral. It’s this country style that makes Three Donkeys stand out in a coastal area that is typically boho and beach inspired.
The shop stocks unique recycled elm furniture, 100% linen wear, accessories, books, bath and body products, locally sourced flowers, and Italian-made footwear. A large table features in the space which will be used to run group workshops such as wreath making.
“This is boutique-style shopping that grabs your heart.”
After a career in marketing as a brand manager at Mcdonald's and becoming mum to three kids, Joanne set up a furniture restoration business from home specialising in upcycled and vintage furniture. This wholesome approach makes Three Donkeys a delightful place to browse and with their in-house coffee bar, you can really “get on holiday time” and unwind in the space.
The coffee bar brings the Three Donkeys wholefoods brand within the new retail space and serves hot drinks, juices, smoothies, and desserts with timber benches outside to relax on.
