Main Street Historic Walk – Site 9

Formerly this building was part of the Margaret River Bakery complex but much later the front half was subdivided and a pottery/craft shop was built by local potter Ian Dowling in 1992. It had been used by Gerry Reilly and Margot Edwards as an artisan glass studio called the Melting Pot. Also the Margaret River Gallery was established here, run by Francois and Cate Payet. It is now known as The Local Margaret River selling gifts and it includes the Mosaic Cafe.
