What is Think Thornbury?
We’re a community focused shop.
How do you pick the things for your shop?
Maggie May curates Think Thornbury. She does this by spending a lot of time researching and exploring. We don’t pick things out of catalogs and we try and stock things that aren’t already available locally. We love locally made things that have heart and a story behind them.
Can you stock the thing that I make?
We’d love to hear from you. We are always on the lookout for new beautiful things BUT Check out what we already stock, research the shop and who we are. We like local, sustainable, ethically manufactured and original ideas.
Please remember that we get a lot of inquiries and you might not hear back from us. If we say “No, Thank You” it’s not always a reflection of you and what you’re making, it might just not be right for us right now.
If you’re getting started with a new brand or idea and you’re keen for some feedback Maggie May offers a professional creative consulting service and will give you some advice on what you’re doing and how to put yourself on the path to success.

What are we doing to minimise risk with Covid-19 and deliveries?
We take this very seriously.
Hands are washed prior to entering the shop, packing orders and in between each delivery.
We can’t take responsibility from Australia post, but we know they are taking this as seriously as we are. Couriers and Australia Post are now instituting mandatory 'authority to leave' on all parcels. This enables contactless delivery that helps protect courier's health and limit the spread of COVID-19.
What this means for you: we advise you to closely track your parcel and try to be home when the parcel is delivered. The courier will select a safe place to leave your parcel, but we recommend you collect it as soon as possible - especially if you live in an apartment block.
Unfortunately Think Thornbury is not responsible for missing parcels once they have been delivered by the courier or Australia Post or Sendle.
Deliveries are drop-offs, not person to person handling in order to maintain social distancing and minimise risk.
The pictures on your website are really lovely! Who took them?
Oh thank you so much for noticing! They were taken by Bobby Clarke, she’s an amazing photographer and artist. Make sure you check her out on instagram.
Your website is really beautiful too! Who did that?
It was a team effort and we had a tonne of help from the wonderful team at Media Sixx . We highly recommend getting in touch with them if you need help with getting your online presence right.
Maggie May does all our Think Thornbury graphic design and product pages.
