Adelaide Insider Guide via Local Favourite, My Modern Nest

April 3, 2013 at 11:11 am

My Modern Nest Posse Store Front Sarah and her Husband fell inlove with collecting beautiful oddities a long time ago; a love that turned into a gorgeous, chic, bric-a-brac store in Port Adelaide. “We started to run out of room!” says My Modern Nest co owner Sarah, “So we started to sell online. When the opportunity to open a shop  came up we jumped at the chance!” The shop houses many gorgeous restored pieces, each carefully selected. “We can’t reveal our trade secrets, but we find things all over the place, sometimes in the strangest of places. We do lots of day trips all over Adelaide, and once found an amazing TH Brown bar stool at my parent’s local garden center  Now that we have the store people are approaching us with their pieces!”  Why they love Posse? “We love to try new things and like that we can find out about new places to go so easily, and know we will most probably like them if our friends are recommending them. It takes the guess work out of trying somewhere new.” Sarah herself spills on where the crew from My Modern Nest frequent around Adelaide, via Posse:

Go Here Now! Recommendations from the Lads behind The Baron- Your Local

April 2, 2013 at 7:31 pm


There’s plenty of great things about life at Posse HQ and one of them is that it’s practically a job requirement for us to hunt down amazing new places! The beauty of this blog is that we’re constantly receiving expert recommendations from people who put us in touch with more incredible people and places, leading us down an inspiring path of discovery which we absoloutly love sharing with you guys!

Somewhere along the way we received a tip-off about a bunch of guys doing something super cool in Castle Hill. The Baron is centred on simplicity, sustainability and attention to detail. Opened by 3 mates, with no hospitality experience, who love coffee, beer and food, they grew up in the area and knew it was in need of a good local. So after a few too many drinks one night they decided to open a shop and over the period of a year, planned & prepped as much as they could. They hired some of the best staff anyone could ask for and with their help, they made The Baron!
