The Barossa probably doesn’t scream shopping mecca to you – the region is certainly more well known for its wine and food credentials.

But don’t let that fool you. We have a great community of fabulous female business owners across the Barossa, so we have amazing small businesses to shop in!

And if you can’t get to the Barossa, they are all online, so you can shop their beautiful ranges from home.

So here’s 5 small local businesses that we love to shop at:

Alabaster in Tanunda, Barossa, South Australia. Photo from Alabaster website.


Co-owned by Skye and Donna, Alabaster is in Tanunda’s main street. Find fashion, homewares and lifestyle pieces in this beautiful space.

Bright Threads

Bright Threads was born from Alice’s search for luxe linen in bold colours and fun patterns. She wanted to produce a high-quality product that was luxurious, recyclable and biodegradable, so decided to work with 100 percent linen.

The business has now grown to have a shop front in Tanunda’s main street, stocking Alice’s beautiful linen along with a collection of homewares. And we love the sentiment ‘be brave with colour’.

Pulp & Thread

Owned by Nat, Pulp & Thread is in Tanunda’s main street. What started as a tiny shop selling gluten free smoothies and weekly lunch specials has transformed in to a vibrant shop with food, fashion and body products.

And we love this from Nat, “When you shop with us online, you are supporting the local Barossa economy, Aussie labels, our staff families and young girls earning an income whilst studying. Thank you for supporting small business.”

Owned by Paula, Kids Unite is located in the main street of Angaston. The shop is stocked with almost every toy / play related item you could think of, making it a great place to shop for presents across a range of ages.

Shopping in the Barossa

So as you can see, we have some gorgeous shops run by very talented ladies here in the Barossa. We find #shoppingsmall is so rewarding – you know that your purchase is helping to support families and their suppliers.

And you gotta love that every time you buy from a small business, they do a little happy dance!
