About us

A little history...

Piccadilly General studio started in the tiny town of Piccadilly in the Adelaide Hills. Originally it was an art studio were four friends shared a space to create. It may have been a small space, but it was mighty! We had a beautiful little community who we loved.

After two years we unfortunately had to make the tough decision...we closed our doors and moved online. 

2020...

From here I took over. Hi, my name is Lucy. I was one of the four. 

The other three are my amazing family (my husband, bro in law and sis in law), who are crazy busy being incredible parents. They were happy for me to take over as kinda new business entirely. I moved us online and we took a slightly different approach. I'm a part time mum, part time wife, part time worker (normal retail job) and part time business owner (this). 

Family is my life. It's the reason I continued this shop; something I can run from home whilst still being a stay at home mumma. I have two beautiful kids and an amazing Husband. The Adelaide hills are where we call home. Our place may be small but it's filled with all things creative! We love plants (indoor and outdoor hehe) and getting creative with a nice big variety of mediums.

Our ethos:

Our online store only stocks Aussie makers and creators. Yes a few do manufacture overseas, but we make sure it's all done ethically.

For me personally it's all about my kids.
I want to show them how important sustainable, slow fashion is.
I wouldn't want my kids working in a factory for a few cents an hour in horrendous conditions, so we only support brands who use fair trade, slow fashion production. 
We love supporting local makers. I know when I first started making jewellery I was at a loss as to where I should sell. I want this website to be that place. A place for the startups, the side hustlers, all creatives. 
There is nothing better than seeing a small business/maker selling their first piece or getting their brand out there and known. 

So that's us! We try to keep things ethical and sustainable in the hope that our future can actually be livable! 

Every parcel sent from our little studio is sent with the environment in mind.
We send everything via a carbon neutral courier, in compostable mailers, containing compostable bubble wrap. When we have to use a box, they are upcycled boxes, from orders made from other places or recycled from local sources.

Thanks so much for stopping by! We are a small business and literally every sale we make brings us so much joy! It supports my family and Aussie small business.
