In the Cove has always been a passionate supporter of buying local and supporting local. You should see ITC’s credit card, jam-packed with local purchases (probably more than Mr ITC would like).
If you are working and in a position to support local businesses they would love it.
Our local independent businesses are mainly owned by Lane Cove locals and they employ locals. If we don’t support them now we will have a ghost town and a vibrant Lane Cove is a good Lane Cove
It’s hard being a small local business at any time but it is tougher now. Our local businesses are adapting and many of then are offering online ordering. If you need a gift for a birthday or to cheer someone up here is how to order online or give someone a gift certificate to use later.
If a Lane Cove business does not have an online store, there’s always the option of calling them and ordering via phone.
The number one rule is Stay Home – if you need some items that are not “essential” then order online and click and collect (or click and clack up to you).
Here are local businesses you can shop with online, by phone or by email and they will deliver.

If your child attends a dance school or is thinking of attending a dance school, they will need dance uniforms. This can be a costly exercise, particularly if your child only decides to dance for one term or likes it so much they want to do ballet, jazz and hip hop (all with different uniforms). Lane Cove Local Alison Bird had this exact problem when she had three girls who danced. Alison founded balletstuff.com.au and now sells affordable dance uniforms for kids online throughout Australia. You can read about Alison here.
Hidden at the Rosenthal Car park end of Atrium Plaza, Ballet Stuff stocks very reasonable priced dance and gym gear. Their Best Seller Ballet Pack – which includes shoes, leotard, tights & skirt – is a really affordable way to get the entire outfit. This pack contains premium quality dancewear drastically cheaper than you will find in any retail outlet.

All our products are lovingly handmade in India bags, typically by those whose jobs have been displaced by machine production methods in the large export houses they worked in. This gives them a crucial source of income that is otherwise not available to them.
My dad, The Walrus, as he is fondly known, looks after the production of our bags… under the very watchful eagle eye of my beautiful mum (The Walrus Tamer)! For every bag you buy, a family overseas eats better, sleeps better and thanks you for your generosity and care.
