Christmas has come early and set up home on Grenfell Street with The Christmas Heirloom Company.
The store specialises in traditional decorations and embellishments to make Christmas a memorable and luxurious experience.
The Christmas Heirloom Company is a New Zealand chain of stores that Angela Buccella and her husband Marcelo Buccella have brought to Adelaide.
Angela and Marcelo decided to open their own The Christmas Heirloom Company store after discovering the brand during their travels to New Zealand. They have opened the first and only The Christmas Heirloom Company store in Australia.
“It reminded us of Christmas in New York and London,” Angela says.
“We’ve always wanted to bring that to Adelaide. We don’t have Christmas the same in Australia and also we thought it would be a nice hobby to run the store for three months of the year.”
When Angela and Marcelo are not working at the gorgeous Christmas pop up store, they run a travel agency which they have had for 25 years.
This is the fifth year in a row that the duo have set up The Christmas Heirloom Company pop up in Adelaide finding a different home around town each year.
In past years, The Christmas Heirloom Company has been located in Unley and Burnside Village, yet this is their first pop up in the CBD.
“We take a short term lease and look around for a nice space every year,” Angela says.
“Sometimes it is hard to get a space for just three months but we’ve been fortunate to find one.”
Angela says the store’s most popular item is their trees.
“Each tree is themed differently which gives costumers a lot of inspiration to try true new colour combinations and it gives them ideas on how to decorate their own tree,” Angela says.
“We have lots of trees and decorations but what we are best known for is the collectable pieces that we offer; for example, we can have a Santa on the sleigh with reindeers and parts that move and play music.
“They are limited edition pieces that are very unique that not everyone would have seen before.”
The Christmas Heirloom Company is located at 187 Grenfell Street, Adelaide.
The store is open from 9am-5:30pm Monday to Thursday, 9:30am-7pm Friday and 10am-4pm Saturday. They will be open on Sundays after the National Pharmacies Christmas Pageant takes place.
