Stone and Grain's flagship store was opened by Andrea in 2010. Whilst styling her Melbourne house to sell, Andrea's deep seeded love for homewares blossomed, deciding that both a sea change and a career change was on the cards. The store was warmly welcomed by the Ocean Grove community, and it was not long until Andrea took over the next shop space, doubling the size of Stone and Grain.
A few years ago Andrea decided a second store in the Industrial estate was needed to house bigger pieces, including furniture and prints. Included in this space is an artistic space for monthly workshops, and a coffee bar showcasing the local regions sweet delights.
The workshops, titled the 'Create' series, combine Andrea’s love of sharing creative experiences and talents with the community. It is here customers, staff and locals come together to learn a particular skill, from painting to flower arranging, from a local expert in a relaxed, fun and non judgmental environment. And there’s always plenty of wine and nibbles on hand to lubricate the process!
