at home with Alfresco

The Alfresco Emporium dream began in 1998 with a small gift shop in Neutral Bay, Sydney Australia. Since those early days, owners Janice and Kevin Hore have proudly grown the Alfresco Emporium identity to what it is known and celebrated for today.

Family is at the core of the Alfresco Emporium brand; Janice and Kevin's three children, Linda, Karen and Michael have helped define and create the unique shopping experience that has established Alfresco Emporium as a must-visit retail destination for customers far and wide. The Alfresco Emporium team are equally a part of the family, sharing the same passion for delivering quality products and unparalleled customer service to the local community.
