How to Find Us   Located on the Lower Ground Floor, 12 Twin Street, just around the corner from Rundle Mall and a few yards east of Adelaide Arcade.    Twin Street runs off Rundle Mall [parallel to Adelaide Arcade] almost opposite the Richmond Hotel.  The stairs are wide and gentle or you can take the lift if you choose which makes it easy for disabled access or bringing prams and pushers.  Moving around the store is also easy with wide aisleways.
