Le Cabinet des Curiosities

Sydney's one-stop shop for all things gothic

Across the road from the Enmore Theatre lies the dark frontage of Le Cabinet des Curiosities - a one-stop shop for all things gothic. “We get a lot of people who are curious to see what it’s all about, plus some who are too scared to come in,” says co-owner Suzanne. The chessboard-tiled floorspace boasts decorative glass display cabinets of handcrafted jewellery and resin-encased creepy crawlies, plus rails of one-off clothing pieces, not to mention a niche selection of black metal CDs. All this sits under the prying eyes of a majestic (defunct) peacock. Current bestsellers include anatomically inspired necklaces ($45) and the striking skeleton-hand pendant ($115). Despite it being a ‘gothic’ store, Suzanne believes it has wider appeal than with the white-faced children of the night. “Gothic isn’t such as a specific thing anymore,” she explains. “It appeals to all kinds of people.” The store is devoted to both local Australian talent and unique items. “I like seeing something special go to exactly the right person,” Suzanne confirms, “and knowing that those people are supporting Australian designers, artists and music.”
