Brand new Williamstown interiors store - The Assembly Hall

The Assembly Hall

How gorgeous is new little store in Williamstown!?  The Assembly Hall has been open just 3 weeks, and stocks a great variety of vibrant, eclectic homewares, textiles, fashion and accessories sourced throughout India, Indonesia and of course locally too!

Not surprisingly, co-owners Sami Moiler and Jess Bettenay have an impressive list of creative credentials - Sami as an interiors stylist for 8+ years, working for magazines including Real Living and Home Beautiful, and Jess in fashion working as brand manager for Trelise Cooper.  Their brand new shop has been a labour of love for this super creative pair, who have spent many months sourcing product and renovating the store interior with their own bare hands! :)

Nice one ladies...!  A great excuse to cross the bridge!
