William Street is one of my favourite shopping destinations because it has unique clothing and shoe shops in what is a residential street. Today, the Oxford Street end of the street was closed to traffic which allowed for some relaxing window shopping. They even had free popcorn!
Later, while walking down Oxford Street towards Darlinghurst, we stumbled on the opening of a new clothing store, High Tea with Mrs Woo, a collaboration of three sisters from Newcastle NSW. The store has a vintage-y feel and is filled with jewellery, Asian-inspired clothes. For the opening they also had delicious canapés including savoury mini cupcakes which are an idea worth copying! Shopping-wise, I bought a wooden brooch to add to my growing animal brooch collection.

Much later, hunger set in (that cupcake was pretty small, after all). We stopped by Mad Mex in Crown Street for sustenance – soft tacos for me and burrito for him. Great flavours, and fairly authentic, by all accounts.
Finally, we made a visit to Thomas Dux Grocer to pick up some stuff for out dinner. Why don’t they have this store near where I live? It’s fantastically laid out, with some of the fruit displayed in straw-filled wooden boxes. They also have food samples to try, and we ended up getting some Maltese sausage after trying the delicious sample. More on that another time…
