A Tiny Bit Marvellous is located on the ground floor of 445 Macquarie Street, South Hobart. It is a sweet little shop which may or may not be the secret home base of the airborne calories that have been so negatively affecting my back-side of late!

South Hobart: A Tiny Bit Marvellous

by Cassandra Wunsch

Run by the delightful Sarah, who greeted me and my husband with an impressive spread of champagne, sushi and soft drinks, the store seems to be the ultimate expression of her own culinary flair. She cheekily confessed she almost had to start the shop; she was already buying all the stock anyway! As someone with their own obsessive tendencies (my husband doesn’t let me in the stationary sections of stores anymore… I admit, I have a problem) it all seemed perfectly logical to me.

I was told that the building itself used to be a somewhat oppressive; deep purple inside, and that all the painting and recarpeting had to be done by Sarah and her family. The results were well worth the effort! The interior is pristine white, and like a good kitchen, gives the comforting impression of being scrupulously clean and tidy.

Or, of course, they are more than welcome to pop down to the shop and have a browse.
