Established in 1975, Alfred’s is proud to have been Darwin’s premier destination for gift buying and speciality goods for over 40 years. The store began as a family-owned and operated business in the Cyclone Tracy revival years. Since 2003, Stanley and Trish Chin have been at the helm of this fun and family-friendly store, which is acknowledged by those in the know as a true icon of the north.
Alfred’s promises a sensory and happy in-store experience. Its reputation has been built on a foundation of quality gifts and trusted brands, personalised customer service and an amazing array of gifts to inspire and treasure.
Bags and wallets
Alfred’s is the exclusive stockist for a range of internationally renowned brands including Mywalit leather goods, which are designed in Italy, and offer stunning colourways in soft buttery leather.
The store has also introduced an exciting new range of Vendula handbags and wallets from London. This unique, creative and fun range boasts amazing hand-stitched detail and is perfect for those shoppers who prefer a non-leather product.
The store’s reputation is also built on its premium selection of quality knives and steels, the most extensive in Darwin. Top brands include F Dick, Shun, Tojiro, Global and Victorinox. Then there are also SOG, Buck and Opinel knives, Leatherman products and exceptional Led Lenser flashlights.
Stanley Chin has particular expertise in this department. With over 40 years’ experience, he is the knife guru with an absolute passion for knives, offering excellent practical advice on selecting and maintaining knives.
Alfred’s also stocks Australian made Urban Rituelle fragranced diffusers and organic soaps, as well as scented Woodwick candles, which crackle as they burn.
For 40 years the store has been the stockist for German Lamy pens, the world’s most awarded pen. Then there is the popular Flatoutbear, made from Australian sheepskin and the perfect gift for every baby.
How about some traditional or contemporary nesting (Matryoshka) dolls?
Alfred’s is also the proud stockist of Kate Finn Golly dolls, Beatrix Potter baby gifts, gorgeous eelskin wallets, stunning Japanese pottery and delightful origami gifts and picture frames. The range just goes on and on and includes fun and quirky additions too numerous to name…
