Stranger than Paradise specialises in well-built, unusual classic toys and gifts not found in regular shops of this kind. Owners Matthew Aldridge and Lucia Di Mauro, who have long standing connections with North Melbourne, actively seek out high-quality handmade European and locally produced gifts and toys. They display products that are not in the usual ‘Disney style’, that are BPA free and manufactured from recycled materials. The range available includes the quirky and the more sophisticated, right through to once-a-lifetime collectable gifts for that special occasion. If you are looking for something different that is well-made and memorable, that will inspire a child and perhaps become a keepsake in the next generation, Stranger than Paradise is the place to go.
As a colorful and intriguing addition to the Errol and Queensberry Streets precinct, Stranger than Paradise is a tempting source of playful and wonderful gifts suitable for people of all ages. And since Christmas is rapidly approaching Stanger than Paradise has a whole new range of treats to suit your needs for giving this season. Stranger than Paradise is a fine compliment to the gently expanding retail sector in the area. And it will be fun to see how their son Rocco will respond to the enviable prospect of growing up surrounded by the wonders available to him!
