About Us

Journals is a real, physical retail store in Redfern/Darlington.

The inspiration for Journals came in watching the excitement of our young daughter learning to read and write. The pride in her face reminded us of the joys of discovery and creation when one puts pen to paper.

As space is limited, each brand and product must earn its place at Journals. Their stories must be one of quality, inspiring design, sustainability and pedigree.

Our selection spans personal and gift options for the entire life age range and we hope that Journals becomes your first port of call, whenever a gift occasion arises or you just want some retail therapy!
