For pottery, glass, and jewellery stop by the Frances Clarice Gallery or the X Gallery.
Sprinkled throughout the city are plenty of gifts shops that offer plants, garden art, home wares, and (of course) gifts, although if you have more time you can search out great produce for a picnic or limited edition books.
