Beachside Emporium is a unique Art and Design store located on Terralong Street, Kiama on the NSW South Coast.
Situated conveniently on the high street and just up from the lovely Kiama Harbour, the business was established by Kathryn O’Brien, and has been trading for nine years. Local resident, Kathryn believed there was room for a retail store in Kiama that delivered outstanding service, and provided customers with honest feedback and a delightful shopping experience.
Beachside Emporium showcases local design and Australian-made products and has been a proud supporter of established and emerging artists from the region. The store has helped promote local artists and exposed their work to a broader community.
Originally established as a single store selling sleepwear and body products, Beachside Emporium expanded into two large stores housing fashion, homewares, furniture, art, bath and body products and distinctive gifts.
Beachside Emporium is known for going above and beyond for customers, often assisting with requests for items not in store. The team are happy to research and source items and coordinate delivery. Kathryn and the other staff members pride themselves on having a professional but relaxed style and are often asked to provide interior styling advice and tips on how to put together a winning look using in-store and/or a sourced range of products.
