About Eclectico

Our store in St Kilda was established in 2010 on the iconic Acland Street in our upstairs oasis with garden terrace. This light-filled location has been home to Eclectico for 11 years but the roots of the shop go back to 1990 when the owner Alan bought a one-way plane ticket to South America and embarked upon a career making, buying and selling handicrafts around the world. From Caribbean beaches to festivals and markets such as Glastonbury, Womadelaide, Portobello Rd and Queen Vic Night Market.

We source most of our products directly from our suppliers using fair-trade practises. We have been working with some of them for over 20 years and usually travel to the countries of origen to choose and hand select them.
