On Fremantle’s Wray Ave a new shop has popped up.  Where once there was a laundromat now there is Pekho, a beautiful shop bustling with carefully selected ‘wear + wares’.  Sourced from South Africa, Shine Shine makes a big impression when you enter the store from Obama aprons to madonna cushions. These homewares are an awesome gift idea….or if you’re like me you will want 1 of everything and they may never make it to someone elses hands!  Pekho is also the name of the clothing label carried in the store, designed and made in WA by the shop owner Buffy Murray. I have bought clothes designed by Buffy before…. its the kind of garment you can’t stop wearing and people always comment on how great you look kind of thing… gotta love that! Oh and did I say they have large sizes! There is also a beautiful range of frocks for little people aptly named Pekho BOO, very pretty fabrics with gorgeous trims.  In addition there are beautiful artworks and hand dyed cushions by WA’s Jac Harley and some lovely handmade felt objects and furnishings by Kietsu.  Buffy has also selected some of my jewellery for the store which I am very excited about, thanks Buff! All this and much more Pekho is a very welcome addition to Wray Ave, a great place to shop for something exceptional and homegrown.
