Kate Sylvester is feeling generous! Commencing this Saturday, her Paddington store will be setting up a coffee cart offering made-to-order Toby's Estate organic coffee to caffeine-hungry shoppers. While you're at it, if you sign up to the Kate Sylvester database you'll receive a $50 voucher to use instore once the new Summer range has been delivered. What's the catch? Well...none. "Coffee and shopping are a match made in heaven, especially on a Saturday morning, and also we just felt like being nice!" says the designer. I'll pay that. The Paddo store will also be hosting a mix of Tea and Vinyl, where customers can retreat in a lounge area to listen to records (everything from The Ramones to The Velvet Underground) and sip Clipper's organic teas if the shopping becomes all too much for one day. Now that's what I call retail therapy!
