Check out this store. Absolutely amazing. I have never seen anything like it. Rooms of just about everything you could imagine. Unfortunately, they dont allow photographs, so you will just have to check it out yourselves :)

“A maze of amazing items!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

To describe Reliquaire would be too difficult - read other reviews for details on some of the delights this place has to offer.

All I've got to say is.... Don't miss it! It was like a time warp. We walked in mid afternoon and walked out at closing trying to work out where the afternoon went.

“Most amazing and wonderful shop in Australia !”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Upon entering Reliquaires in Gilbert Street Latrobe, Nothern Tasmania (about a 10 minute drive from Devonport and the ferry) you feel like Alice being in Wonderland. Honestly, I have never been in a shop like it. Even if you don't buy anything and have a coffee only, it's an experience like no other for both adults and children. Allow yourself at least an hour though. They sell - Arts and crafts, toys, models, games and puzzles. Doll, puppets and marionettes, venetian masks. Body products, including the most beautifully wrapped and reasonably priced imported French, English and Italian soaps. Gourmet Food and Wine, Teas and coffees, including Tasmanian produce. Clothing, exquisite fairy dresses, Costume Hire, delightful and 'different' costume jewellry, Handbags and wallets, kitchenware, Science and Education materials, Home Restoration materials and gorgeous leadlight pendant Lights and lamps. Books too. Simply so much to see and the PRODUCTS ARE SO DIFFERENT FROM WHAT YOU SEE ANYWHERE ELSE. The buyers obviously get things from all around the world. This is undoubtedly the ULTIMATE GIFT SHOP and the prices range from the very affordable to the thousand dollars plus. No, I don't have any financial interest in the shop at all but, as a Tasmanian resident (ex Melbourne), I am very proud that this shop exists in Tassie and am delighted to take my mainland friends and relatives to visit it - they are amazed ! The store has a website - Reliquaire.com

“Nothing like it”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This is a different universe. From the outside it is just another vintage building in La Trobe - a common sight in Tasmania. Then you are swept into another world, greeted with a fudge sample and map as you look at a city teeming with dolls of all sorts ... quite creepy in its own way. And then the extraordinary array of knick knacks, toys, souvenirs, books, clothes ... with the room of mirrors, life size horror dummies, reaching out at you. Quirky and fun ... there is something here for all the family. It is not a well-kept secret in Tassie - so popular that there are often queues outside - it is a difficult place to navigate with narrow hallways (so much so that you are asked to work in a clockwise direction through the various rooms).

Don't miss it.
