With the new school year fast-approaching, it’s time to hit the shops in Elsternwick Village for back to school supplies.

Thankfully, all your needs are covered so you don’t need to travel far.

From stationery to school books, haircuts to giving last year’s school blazer a fresh look with a dry clean, Elsternwick Village has you covered.

We give you the lowdown on where to source exactly what you need to have all your supplies to hand for the kids’ new school year.


A new school year means a blank page to write upon.

Stock up on stationery without leaving Elsternwick Village – you’ll find everything from notebooks to drink bottles, lunch boxes and calculators.

Head to Mr Pickwick’s Newsagency for essentials like pens and notepads, or try Officeworks for larger bulk buys, such as a new desk if your child is heading into VCE and needs to get serious about studying this year.

For a huge range of lunch boxes and containers, as well as BPA-free and insulated drink bottles, look no further than Dalgarno’s of Elsternwick. The store is also offering 20% of all Contigo drink bottles until February 9.


For books on the school curriculum, readers, and literature on the annual reading list, try the lovely Avenue Bookstore.

If they don’t have something to hand they might be able to order it in for you, and you can’t beat a small, independent bookstore for stellar customer service.

Printer cartridges and paper supplies

A great little local shop for printer cartridges that need replacing, as well as paper supplies, is Universal Toner and Inkjet. They also offer discounts and recycling services for old cartridges.


Tech supplies have become just as important as stationery in this day and age.
