There’s a trove of treasures just waiting to be discovered in Nowra. Aladdins Cave Emporium is a large warehouse full of eclectic, and sustainable, antique, vintage, up-cycled and quality used furniture.
Up until April this year, the business was run by Garry Pearsall for 28 years, originally having started in Thirroul in 1990 and moving to various locations throughout Sydney in the mid to late 1990s. It arrived in Berry in 2000 as Aladdin’s Cave Furniture, followed by a second shop at Kiama in 2004 and back to Berry.
After 18 years in the Shoalhaven, the reins have now been passed over to Garry’s wife Linda Pearsall, as he pursues other interests. “He is always however, hovering in the background when needed, or not needed,” Linda laughed. “It’s hard to abandon the ship, after 28 years.”
Aladdins Cave Emporium fills a void in the marketplace in the Shoalhaven, located at 2/17 Investigator Street, South Nowra. “Quality used furniture is not readily available today in the retail market place,” Linda said. “There are several charity stores offering general used and second hand items, but not of the quality on offer at Aladdins Cave Emporium.”
Aladdins has great furniture, in many cases purchased for thousands of dollars new in a previous life, waiting for a second chance to be loved at a reduced price. “Furniture that will stand the test of time, unlike much of the cheaper imported furniture available today,” Linda said.

The warehouse is bursting at the seams, so Aladdins plans to expand into large premises as soon as possible. “Plans are in place, but we will wait until after the Christmas and holiday period is over,” Linda said.
Linda encouraged buyers to check out Aladdins’ stock and prices, before buying new, “as you may find just what you are looking for at Aladdins and save many hundreds of dollars. Not to mention you may just end up with a top quality piece of furniture, purchased very cheaply – unlike some other new items.”
This is often quality-built furniture made from beautiful timbers that are generally not found today. “An antique piece can be a standout or statement piece, even in a contemporary home,” Linda said. “It can also be up-cycled with new painting techniques available today.”
Whatever your taste, Aladdins has all sorts of furniture pieces available. “Come in and say hello, and let us know what you're looking for to see if we can help,” Linda said. “We just may be able to search out a particular piece for you.”
Aladdins Cave Emporium is not a traditional antique shop. It has a large range of all sorts of furniture from old to new, from vintage to out of this world. At Aladdins Cave, you never know what you'll find.
