Lefty, arty and subversive in the best possible way, Title is the place to find that elusive Miles Davis disc or Charles Bukowski poetry compilation.
The catch cry here is 'Handmade in Adelaide' − a brilliant assortment of paintings, jewellery, glassware, ceramics and textiles, plus a gallery upstairs. Their 'Heaps Good' T-shirts are appropriately pro-SA on a hot summer's day.
The best bookshop in Adelaide in the worst location (in the thick of the Hindley St strip-club fray)? Jazz, floorboards, Persian rugs and occasional live readings and book launches.
An international success story, SA's own Jurlique sells fragrant skincare products (some Rosewater Balancing Mist, anyone?) that are pricey but worth every cent.
Stocks a toothy range of punk, rock, skate and rockabilly gear. Its sister store Old Midwest across the street sells awesome American vintage.
Textiles, jewellery, bags, cards and canvasses from a 35-member local arts co-op. Meet the artists in-store.
While you’re in town, check out the local arts and crafts at the Heart of the Hills Market .
Maps, charts and guides for walking, hiking and touring, plus GPS sales and advice.
Another SA smash hit, selling boots handmade from single pieces of leather.
For new and secondhand CDs and vinyl, swing into the excellent Big Star .
Outstanding village bookshop, with an especially good range of kids’ books.
The town’s only bookshop also has loads of regional info.
