What started out as a simple visit to the only shop that opens late in this part of town many years back has turned into my regular ritual every time I visit King St, Newtown. PentiMento has a certain charm on its store that overflows its front door it would be very hard for anyone passing by to not take notice.

I've always found the staff at Pentimento to be helpful and accommodating. When I've asked prices on items where it didn't appear clear they've acted promptly and professionally.

One of my favourite shops on King street. The staff are great fun and always have time for me, I don't know what all these haters are on about! I go for the book selection which I love. For me it's a fun place to shop!

The "shop asisstants" and management here may have reasonable taste in their stock, but the seriously rude entirely negate any pleasure derived from shopping here. When Pentimento first opened it was a pretty unique place to shop. Thankfully there are now plenty of very decent and far less overpriced options handy to King St. If I wanted to be treated with disdain and annoyance I'd be at the real estate requesting repairs for our rented house.

This place has saved me many a time, great when your on your way to a party or someting and need a quick gift, gift wrapping is a bonus. Great cards, books, quirky things.
