Cleanest antique shop I’ve visited.
Sep. 2021 • Friends
This is a definite must when visiting St Helens. It is shop selling antiques, collectibles and a small selection of Tasmanian products. We visited the Shop in the Bush 12 years ago and I don’t remember it being as good as it currently is. Everything is sparkling clean and the prices are generally reasonable. I will definitely return when I’m back in the area.

Worth a stop something for everyone
Feb. 2021
Loved this little shop, something for everyone. Lots of antiques, books, souvenirs and even fishing rods. Not cheap but well presented in a nice shop, staff friendly and helpful. Well worth a stop bit tricky if you’re towing a caravan.

THIS IS A WOW

If I had to choose a place to revisit it will be this place. So well laid out and very different items to look at. Place was kept spotless by the most welcoming and helpful person serving. If you are looking for that something special and or different give the shop in the bush will surely have it.

Nice Antique Store
Mar. 2020 • Couples
We were very impressed with this store. They have a wide variety of antiques and other items. Everything is in good shape and well-labeled. The guy that runs the place is friendly and helpful. Just wish we had room in our luggage to take back a few of the larger antiques.

A bit of everything..something for all

Just happened to call in as Dad not much of a shopper! Looks like an antique shop but also has Tasmanian souvineers and other bits and pieces. Worth a look as some bargains and some unusal items

This was a surprise
Oct. 2019 • Couples
What a collection of first class antiques, jewellery and pre loved books. We had a lovely time here just looking at all the beautiful, well priced but very classy and beautifully presented pieces. The owners were warm and friendly and not at all pushy. We found a beautiful, very small crystal vase which I loved but we did not buy it. After a couple of days my husband, who hadn’t realised how much I loved it, said he regretted not buying it too. I emailed the Shop in the Bush and, a couple of days later, was delighted to receive an email with a picture “is this it?”. How thrilled I am. When we arrive home from Tassie I will have a surprise the mail to look forward to. Fantastic Service.
