Thirroul is getting lovelier by the minute.
A new shop has opened up the Northern end, and it features the works of our amazing local artisans.
The Living Hearth stocks only items made from natural materials:- stone, glass, linen, wool, metal and timber, and all are ethically sourced.
Under the loving hand of long-term Bulli resident Linda Sheahan, The Living Hearth is out of the ordinary.
Linda, an artist and printmaker, also runs successful online linen business Miss Molly. “I wanted to move from online to bricks and mortar,” says Linda. “Miss Molly is fabulous, but it’s lovely to have a real shop!
“There are so many creative people in the Northern Illawarra. The Living Hearth gives us a wonderful opportunity to showcase their products.
