CRAVE is a cleverly conceived acronym for Ipswich's own "Creative, Retro, Antiques, Vintage and Eclectic" trail. 20 shops are part of this inspirational trail - all of which stock a colorful array of treasures to be purchased, adored and admired.
Beginning in the historic Top of Town shopping precinct of Ipswich, visitors are guaranteed to find something special at Furniture & Homewares Revival's big white shed or R & R Behind Red Doors. Here you'll also find Ipswich's oldest shop - CJ Vogler & Son, packed with quirky collectables. Venturing further down Brisbane Street, housed within heritage-listed buildings are Upcycled Treasure, Limestone Emporium, and The Vintage Advantage.
To finish the CRAVE trail, crafters and quilters will be keen to pay a visit to ART Time, The Art & Craft Cottage, Kaela's Patch, Country Quilt Co and Queen B's Collective to discover plenty of supplies and materials to last until next time.
In a nutshell - Follow this creative, retro, antique, vintage and eclectic trail through the Ipswich region in order to find and make memories to treasure forever.
Nice to know - Ipswich CBD has cheap metered street parking, and Ipswich Mall is a central parking location to access the many locations along the CRAVE Trail.
