Watershed – let’s shop local

November 17, 2014


I’m sure most of you have heard about the new Watershed at the V & A Waterfront and are probably wondering whether it’s worth a visit. Absolutely! I popped in last week to see what all the hype was about and was so impressed.  The space itself has a contemporary, industrial feel and the selection of tenants is fantastic. From well known names such as Mungo & Jemima, Chapel and Pichulik to newer, lesser known names and a selection of curios which will appeal to visitors and tourists. 

The newly renovated space is home to more that 150 tenants who represent 365 brands. From ceramics and homeware, to jewellery, clothing and accessories, there really is a lot to see. So do go and check it out… just in time for some Christmas shopping!
The Watershed is open daily from 10am to 7pm

    Hi there – we were there on Saturday last. Also visited and had a bite to eat at the Food Market right next door. The two venues are amazing and can compete with any international market along similar lines. The sense of open-ness is so expansive and adds value to one’s desire to stroll and take it all in. Next time I have to do it without hubby so that I can take a closer look at all the gems.
