Accessibility


At Far Fetched Designs, everyone is welcome and we want to make sure we are doing all we can to make shopping with us easy and stressfree, taking into consideration that all people are different and have different needs.

While we can't say that our store is perfect - we are continuing to improve our space, how it's navigated and what we can do to make sure everyone who wants to shop with us can. 

NAVIGATING OUR SPACE

Below is a map of our store layout with measurements including aisle widths and how high our displays start.  We have a lot of low shelving and displays and are more than happy to assist anyone who would like to see anything higher that might be out of reach.

While we do have an 11cm high threshold step, we are working on a removable ramp to improve access.  We are also here to help anyone who needs it.  We can see the door from the counter so happy to assist if requested or you can call us on 0491 110 374 if you'd like us to meet you there.

We have a push button EFTPOS machine that is not tethered and can be brought to you if easier.

PRIVATE SHOPPING BY APPOINTMENT

For anyone with light, sound or crowd sensitivity, we are happy to accomodate private quiet shopping times between 9.30-10am (before opening) or 5-5.30pm (after closing) Tuesdays to Saturdays by arrangement.  Please call the store on 0491 110 374 or email us at farfetcheddesigns.popup@gmail.com to let us know so we can make sure someone is here for you. 

During these times, you can request low or reduced lighting and we can turn off any background music.  We can be digilent assistants or let you do your own thing - whatever you feel most comfortable with.  If there's anything else that would make shopping instore easier for you, we're happy to help if we can.

We also have the ability to help with virtual shopping via Facetime or phone.  Everything we have in store is viewable on the website and we offer free gift wrapping as well as free delivery (may not be same day) within 3km from the store.

NAVIGATING SEDDON VILLAGE

There is a number of accessible parking spaces in Seddon Village: including one  directly across from us, out the front of 93 Charles Street (we are at 84 Charles Street).  From there, there is a pedestrian crossing with no curb rises to help get across Charles Street.

Seddon is accessible via 2 train stations, Seddon Station (a 9 minute walk to the store - right on Pentland Parade and left into Charles Street) and Middle Footscray Station (an 8 minute walk to the store - right on Victoria Street and right into Charles Street).  Both walks are mostly flat.  Plus there is a bus stop across from us on Charles street for bus route 223 that runs from Highpoint Shopping Centre and through Footscray, Seddon and Yarraville.  

There is also an accessible toilet available to the public in Harris Reserve (near the corner of Gamon & Thomson Street).  It is a 2 minute / 50 metre walk from the store; located one block up Gamon Street from Charles Street.
