Now if it hasn’t been worked out yet may I let you in on a little secret. I love to shop. And in a true family style I love a sale or a bargain and have been a fan of all the outlet shopping options that have been popping up around Melbourne. I hope at some point to review them all but thought I would begin with the smallest. BrandSmart in Nunawading is a located on Maroondah highway nestled amongst furniture shops.

It seems to often have better deals than DFO and sometimes different stock. But it’s much smaller than any of the DFO’s but this can be viewed as a plus – parking is easy and it’s quick to whip around.


One of the best specials I saw was that Oroton which had 50% off the lowest marked price. This meant that the famous Oroton umbrellas were down from $55 to $18!!!!!! If that doesn’t have you running out to Nunawading I don’t know what will. But hold on – they only have aqua, red and yellow left in stock…the aqua is very pretty…and the yellow feels very HIMYM.


The centre itself is starting to feel a bit old but the shops still have great bargains and as it is often quieter than it’s rivals there are fewer shoppers to grab the bargains before you do.

  1. I live very close to there and my family is obsessed with the Oroton store.

    Yellow is very HIMYM but the romantic in me still loves the idea of a bright yellow umbrella on a rainy grey day…will have to go grab one now. :)

    • Me too!! I picked up a yellow one and have been waiting for it to rain…is it wrong just to take it for a spin around the block if it looks like it might rain….

  2. I was hoping that you would go for the yellow one!
    Love HIMYM.
