The shop was opened in mid-November by two Bassendean locals, Gill Cordiner and Chantal Kilpatrick. Gill is a jeweller and painter whose work won this year’s local artist prize at the Bassendean Art Awards. Chantal and her sister run a successful clothing and soft furnishings label, 'violetclothing'.
Drawing on their extensive experience, they saw the shop as an opportunity to offer emerging and established Perth artists a place to sell their work, and to foster the burgeoning creative vibe that is already present in Bassendean with shops such as Daisy and Rowe and events such as the Old Perth Markets. Bassendean is well known for having an impressive creative community, and Gill and Chantal hope that The Tasty Pear presents an opportunity for some local creatives to gain better exposure in their own community.
