about us

 Situated in Stoneville, just 3 minutes from Mundaring, you will find an adorable little old house steeped in a rich history, now acting as a Book, Gift & Art Emporium. We are an Emporium full of delightful handmade treasures and an ever growing range of WA Authors books.
 The added touch of our permanent coffee van, which you will find situated out the front of our gorgeous building, is quite unique in itself. Next time you visit our little slice of heaven, why not indulge yourself and enjoy a beverage with perhaps a delectable homebaked treat on our lovely front deck, while taking in the beautiful ambient surrounds and then browse the many rooms, behind the Purple Curtain, at your leisure.
 Our business was created with passion and is designed to be a nurturing place of love, laughter and connecting creative minds. Hill Billy Iron Works is a permanent fixture at Just Add Passion with his exclusive indoor and garden sculptures. Why not get the Master Craftsman that is Hill Billy Iron Works to build something for your garden, he truly is very clever indeed. You will also find books, Australian made and owned essential oils, incense, hand lotions and soy candles, crystals and unique gifts. Just Add Passion is the perfect place for your senses.
 ~ We are very happy to say that we have not one but two ‘Artists in Residence’. Each with their own space full of their fabulous artworks. Why not stop by to meet these creative souls who you will no doubt fall in love with. Both of these ladies add such a vibrant yet calming mix to the Emporium. I am so very delighted to have them both on board now and look forward to our journey’s collectively. ~

 ~ Artist in Residence is Rosetta Elsner, f Energetic Abstractions. Rosetta (Rose) Elsner is an Irish-born, West Australian raised, self-taught Acrylic, Watercolour, Ink and Fluid Acrylic Abstract Artist. Rose is the colourful, eclectic and quirky Creative Expressionist of Abstract Energy ARTwork makings @Energetic Abstractions. Rosetta, aka Abstract Energy ARTist Rose, is also the solo PAINt Relief Creativity Workshop Facilitator @Holistic ARTistry.

 ~ And Artist in Residence Julie Cawston, of SisArt, is an abstract artist, working primarily in acrylics and further exploring textures through mixed media and collage. Julie’s art is emotion driven expression, unspoken words, through intuitive symbolism. Julie’s artwork has been reproduced on fabric under her SiSArt label in her shop at Spoonflower. https://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/sisart Julie’s original artwork is available for purchase at the Emporium, as well as a selection of her fabric items.

 

 This quiet haven also promotes, with great pride, many of our fabulous Western Australian Authors. We have a huge array of personally signed titles, in many genres, by these wonderful souls. Every second Sunday of the Month you will find a number of these local Authors here for book launches, book signings and book talks. Stay tuned to this page for details on who will be attending.
 Speaking of books… we have a huge selection of second hand books for sale at very cheap prices and the proceeds from the sale of these books goes to The Indigenous Literacy Foundation. Donations are kindly accepted of books or monies and we thank you in anticipation.
 Have you seen JAC? Just Add Coffee. This is our gorgeous little Coffe Van as we mentioned previously, situated right outside for your caffeine fix, tea or perhaps a sweet or savoury treat. Enjoy these up on the front deck, or perhaps out on the back deck for something a little more quiet. Grab a second hand book or two, bring your dog and make this your local spot to relax. We use fresh milk, Gluten Free wherever possible and a discount is given if you bring your own reusable cups.
**Dogs must be on leads at all times, remain out the front of the building and if your dog has to ‘go’ then his/her ‘doggy doos’ must be taken with you, please.**

Just Add Passion is a place for all the senses.
