Our Story

Weclome to Creative Alice

Founded by Alyson & Larry Ayliffe, Creative Alice is a vintage homewares and interior design boutique based in Cleveland. Breathing modern life and elegance into worn-out antiques, Aly has a truly unique talent for transforming tired vintage furniture into high-demand décor pieces.


Famously known as being the only stockist in the Redland City area of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints®, Waxes and accessories; Redlands locals can experiment with all 37 vibrant colours, expertly created so any and all colour combinations flawlessly complement each other.


Sharing her love of vintage, art and beauty, Aly hosts monthly Annie Sloan themed restoration workshops that allow anyone and everyone to become a DIY expert for a day and effortlessly transform old furniture into irreplaceable pieces of art.

Creative Alice is also an exclusive Redland City stockist of the Jeanne d'Arc Living Magazine, and are able to order small items and accessories for customers upon request. 

Aly has a remarkable ability for finding beauty in even the most neglected things, driven by her contagious optimism and passion. Most pieces of furniture sold have been completely refurbished by Aly in her home workshop. Customer repair jobs are also available upon request.


Spending 3 years in Middle Street, in April 2018, Creative Alice moved to a new location at Bloomfield Street, in Cleveland. While they regret to say they will no longer be running their Café and Wonderland Garden for Jazz Soirees and High Teas, the new premises allows Aly to expand on class offerings to teach a wider range of DIY techniques. 

Creative Alice is the ideal location for catching up with friends, spending some leisurely time alone or finding quirky, authentic, one-of-a-kind treasures. You'll be given the best and warmest family style service each and every visit.
