Quidditas General Store & Quidditas Creative Arts Gallery Newsletter

Leura is beautiful in Autumn with our cold climate tress and scrubs in autumn tones and camellias in bloom. The end of Summer fading away and a wonderful cool climate.

We hope you are inspired to visit and discover our wonderful range of items in both locations.  Some items are the same or similar at each location but others exclusive to each shop.

Colin Parker was painting on the veranda at the Gallery over Easter which was great fun.  And he has restocked his gallery with new art works inspired by his travels both locally and overseas. A colourful collection.



We have new stock and new designs in Vivid Colours with an extensive range of colours in our earrings.  Available at both shops.

MELIN TREGWYNT combines the authentic craft tradition of the Welsh double cloth and the carthenni blanket. Reversible and in pure wool. Exclusive to our shop as I import them myself. In keeping with our support of traditional and innovative textiles.

TIFFANY TRELOAR has just released some wonderful new designs.  As has French company IBRIDE.   

An excellent new selection of Mason’s china and other antique items including our new cabinet of exquisite antique lace and textiles for sale. These are from my personal collection.


NOW AND ZEN – Japanese Costumes and Textiles - which has been extended. A remarkable exhibition containing some rare and hard to obtain textiles.

LACE – A HOLEY TEXTILE OF ALL SORTS.  An exhibition to ponder the sheer enjoyment and the beauty of lace.  Marvel at the enormous amount of skill and time involved in creating it.

COLIN PARKER ART features treasures from one of Australia’s best known figurative artists depicting nostalgic Australia, Paris and Leura Mall.

QUIDDITAS GALLERY is open Thursday through to Saturday from 10.00am – 5.00pm and Sunday from 10.00am to 3.00pm.  Please note our new hours.

French designer SOPHIE DIGARD has an amazing ability to combine attention to detail, natural fibres and a wondrous sense of colour combinations. The range is a combination of crotchet and or embroidery.  We have a steady flow of the latest items available throughout the year.  Available at both shops.

And we have a wonderful range of JOHN HANLY scarves from Ireland. Established in County Tipperary, Ireland in 1893, John Hanly & Co Ltd specialises in the manufacture of scarves and throws in wool, cashmere, lambswool, mohair and other natural fibres.

Our scarf range is full of must have pieces offering beautiful items you can enjoy and wear for a long time. Wonderful keepsakes that are also practical.

We have a wonderful collection of fun bookends from WHITE MOOSE and we specialise in other unusual items for the home and gifts. Including games, boxed coasters, boxed mugs and plates.  We have a lot of animal and anamorphic items.

We now stock a range of MONSTER THREADS – there are some great fun designs and a lot of choice in how you want to enjoy your favourite design images.

We stock LAMY pens and mechanical pencils, including Fountain Pens and Rollerballs. Designed and manufactured in Heidelberg, Germany, they come in a great range of colours and write beautifully.

We continue to stock KAWECO pens and mechanical pencils as well as pen and pencil refills for both LAMY and KAWECO ranges.

Adding to our range of writing implements BLACKWING, PALOMINO and FORESTCHOICE pencils. Some of the world’s most legendary Grammy, Emmy, Pulitzer and Academy Award winners have created with Blackwing pencils. Claimed by many to be the best writing utensil in the world, Blackwing pencils are famous for the quality of graphite, iconic shape and replaceable eraser. Palomino’s Rainbow Colour Pencil Set comes with six vibrant, highly-pigmented artist colour pencils that are made of genuine Incense-cedar. ForestChoice graphite pencils are made of genuine FSC-certified Incense-cedar, proving that eco-friendliness and high-quality can go hand in hand. 

We are adding new and different stock to both stores all the time and it is only by visiting that you can take in the full extent of what we stock. 

We always have gift wrapping available when required.

Come and visit us at both stores to select from the vast array of treasures. We look forward to seeing you.
