Swaying gently in a hammock is a summer goal for many and Hammock Heaven can make this idyllic image a reality.
COVERED. kicked back on this summer accessory of choice.
Stocking authentic Mexican and Ecuadorian hammocks, the large airy store in PIttwater Road, North Manly, is a colourful treasure trove of much more than just hammocks.
In addition to the 25 different hammocks in various colours and sizes, plus any accessory you might ever need, the shop also stocks hammock chairs, ideal for apartments and more limited spaces, as well as authentic Mexican blankets, picnic rugs, homewares, brightly patterned tablecloths and beautifully embroidered women’s and kid’s dresses.
There are genuine Mexican ponchos, surfer baja hoodies, Mexican sombreros, Panama fedoras and other hats as well as hippie bags, Guatemalan worry dolls, maracas and an array of party perfect Corona merchandise.
John, who runs the business with his Mexican wife Ana, says, “In summer when we walk along the beach and look at people picnicing on the grass we always see a few of the blankets we sell. They are a good option for picnic rugs, they look great and are hard wearing and good quality.”
He says the hand embroidered dresses for women and girls are very popular too. “People are surprised that we sell so much more than just hammocks,” he laughs.
“People often come in and buy accessories for Mexican themed parties and we have quite a lot of Corona merchandise. But our stuff is good quality so a lot of the time people buy it for more than using just as a one-off.”
And for anyone wondering what to buy their husband, wife, brother sister or colleague for Christmas… it’s the perfect solution. Just walk in and try one out for yourself.
