    Default All things related to BD Store?

    Hi Ladies,
    Anyone here know if there is a brick and mortar store/outlet that is just related to BD stuff in MELBOURNE?

    Plenty on line but looking for something like a one-stop-BD-shop...?
    Sometimes its nice to feely-touchy before i buy

    I've never heard of one. I believe Underbelly have a small outlet but you have to make an appointment to go there, maybe some bellydance studios carry bits & pieces, but a full on retail shop unfortunately no such animal that I know of

    There aren't enough Melbournians or Victorians here to get a good representative. I think there is probably 4 or 5 on this forum and only 2 other members besides myself who are absolute regulars of this forum. There are other members who live in NSW & QLD.

    It is very likely that a physical shop would not be terribly successful as there are not enough professional dancers in Melbourne to sustain it. Most either buy online or buy when they go to Egypt. I am one of those. mainly because the cost of a costume locally is a ridiculous price. I can buy a really nice costume including postage from the online BD store based in the US, for at least 1/2 the cost of what I'd pay here & get a much better selection. If I buy in Egypt it is even cheaper.

    Azura's Oasis is a bellydance-only shop in Brunswick. I bought my first serious piece of bling there.

    Its interesting to know what is available. I realize, like mosaic said, the market isn't all the massive here and its certainly not like the states.

    The Kismet bazaar was good last year, was told it wasn't the biggest or best crowd but it was interesting though.


    Ahh Brunswick.. not my favorite place to go hahah. I prefer to take transport as finding safe parking is a mission. Twice i went there and twice my car got scratched
