Carrington’s newest homewares boutique
Situated over in Carrington is a little-known homewares boutique that has quietly become a bit of a favourite haunt for locals. Introducing, Saudari Trading.
Brought to you by Tracey Brown, the bricks-and-mortar space located on the corner of Young and Cowper St has been bringing the local community a range of eclectic pieces since its opening in August last year.
Originally from a country town called Molong near Orange, Tracey has spent her lifetime jumping around the state before officially calling Newcastle home five years ago.
Starting the brand, originally known as just Saudari, as a pop-up market stall in Sydney a few years prior to relocating to Newcastle, Tracey had decided a dedicated space for her unique collection of goods was the perfect remedy for the market put-up/pack-down lifestyle.
“When I was doing the markets, it was mostly throws and cushions as opposed to the big stuff. I still have all of those smaller products in here but having this space means I can bring in furniture and artwork and those bigger statement pieces,” Tracey shared.
Some may remember this cosy space as the old Carrington barber shop, an intimate space that has been reshaped into a little gem filled with intricate treasures.
“I really love being in Carrington, it’s such a funky little area.”
Step inside and explore Tracey’s selection of bohemian and coastal-inspired jewellery, leather goods, accessories, throws, cushions, art, and even furniture.
Whether you’re looking for a new piece to finish off a room at your home, need a unique gift for a friend or family member, or just love browsing one-of-a-kind pieces; Saudari Trading should be on your to-visit list.
“I try to pick out pieces that will fit into most homes, but I also do appreciate a little bit of a pop of colour.”
For some of you, you may be asking the question, what does Saudari represent?
“Saudari means sister in Indonesian. I chose this name because my sister and I were doing the markets together when I originally came to Newcastle. Whilst my sister isn’t in the business anymore, I still kept the name because I love it. It’s a nice nod to our close sisterly bond.”
The unique homewares and lifestyle store is currently only open over the weekends, with hopes to expand to Mondays in the not-too-distant future. So, if you’re looking for a little weekend exploration, head on over to Carrington and see what Saudari Trading is all about.
