Friends @ Original Finish Newtown are recalibrating

First of the Farewell lunches at Original Finish store in Newtown. Closing operation after almost 20 years

Our friends Alison and Stephen Gibson who run the wonderful establishment ... Original Finish in Newtown ... are recalibrating.

The large warehouse used for the manufacture of their famous Original Finish tables and hand made furniture that is attached to their home and  showroom will be sold. Alison and Stephen will take a deep breath and decide how they want to recalibrate their business. So this is not the end of Original Finish ... just a pause before exciting new directions for delivering their exquisite tables and lounge chairs and sofas.

The Warehouse area has also been used for the most outrageous and generous hospitality for their friends over the years. Many have been posted on this blog. a few Sunday's ago we enjoyed a Sunday lunch ... the start of the long farewell to a space that has been very important for all of us.

The food by Alison, as always, was wonderful, Legs of lamb (from Vic @ Carriageworks Farmers Market) cooked for 5 hours melted off the bone into our mouths. The dessert from Ottolenghi's book Sweet was deadly and dangerous. We stayed late ....... Thank you Alison and Stephen xx

Highlights On 300sqm of land this warehouse is a potential statement home & local landmark in Residential 2B zoning.
