Hello friends,

Happy New Year! We’re back and rolling into 2018, refreshed & looking forward to the year ahead. After a longer than usual Xmas / New Year break that included some contemplative time in the desert & some cool inspiration in LA ( I can’t wait to write some tips and must do’s in my ‘Travel Notes’ )…we have some news to announce..

As a background to this – it’s been a couple of years since we moved out of our Surry Hills store due to the light rail construction and just twelve months ago we downsized our personal lives, moving from a house that we built & loved to a smaller, city central home. It was a place that played incubator for so much of my creative and photographic life…and to be honest I thought it might take a bit of getting used to

But the surprise has been how positive this change has been, and how this change has given us the opportunity to simplify & to focus on what we want, and what matters most.  So right now we are feeling inspired to do the same to our working lives..!

With major road works looming over the warehouse & our upbeat “ change is good” vibe, we have decided to up stumps and move on from Leichhardt in 2018…
How, When & Where is still evolving but we plan to hit the pause button with a mini sabbatical later in the year before Elements I Love is re- born in a new location.

We love what we do and are excited at the prospect of re-imagining our antique life with lots of creative ideas in the making.
If you have enjoyed our ever-changing antique business over the past (20 ish) years, let us know what you love the most…everything is on the table!
