Sarah Shanahan’s guide to Jetty Road, Glenelg

I love the shopping strips that our great city of Adelaide has to offer, from the city, hills and the beach, there’s seriously some gorgeous day outs to be had exploring Jetty Road, Glenelg.

I recently grabbed the most of a free morning, some winter sunshine and took myself to Jetty Road, Glenelg, to explore this historic part of Adelaide.

Of course any good shopping experience must start with coffee and seriously Glenelg is spoilt for choices! I couldn’t resist the cute, friendly vibe of Superette, located a short walk from the bustle of Jetty Road on Moseley St, the exterior sign reminding me of an old milk bar store with the cutest chairs out front, it was always going to be a yes from me!

Perfectly caffeinated, it’s time to shop and a quick walk to ‘Lightbox Gift and Home’ on Jetty Road was the perfect start, an immediate beachy vibe welcomes shoppers with white washed floorboards and modern, punchy art to suit any interior lover. A huge range of local candle maker ‘Ettikette handmade’ candles on display, was way to difficult to choose, they are all so lovely and distinct to each area of South Australia. In case you’re wondering, ‘Yorkes’ won my vote!

A few minutes walk up jetty road led me to ‘Homebasics and Design’ where calm, modern, sophisticated homewares await. Neutral earthy tones perfect for beachside living, all your kitchen essentials are conveniently located here as well. A whole house could easily be beautifully furnished here!

Wandering between stores along Jetty Road is a feast for the eyes with cool street art adding to the modern vibe of the seaside strip. Any movie lover would enjoy the fabulously decorated cinema tucked around the corner, with more street art to meet and greet on arrival and departure.

More favourites along Jetty Road have to include ‘Villa Hampton’ with the distinct Hampton’s style in abundance, gift galore in this store! A lovely modern feel greets shoppers at ‘attitudes boutique’ where ‘PE Nation’ active wear will have you walking the seaside suburbs in style! Super friendly staff too!!

Time to stop and catch my breath (and take stock of my wallet!) at ‘Nutrition Republic,’ with a delicious smoothie and raw desert snack.

Jetty Road, Glenelg worth a visit! Just make sure to make time to wander the side streets and enjoy the fabulous street art, coffee shops and homewares stores, it’s definitely worth it. Happy shopping!
