Supporting local businesses.

When I turned 40 (not last year but the year before) my oldest son bought me a lovely gift from The Collective Store at Wynum.

It was a pink bird screen printed onto a piece of salvaged timber made by a local business call Mason Sinclair. I absolutely loved it and have since collected a few more

I really like the concept behind the shop The Collective Store.  It’s a fantastic way for local artists and craftspeople to showcase and potentially sell their works.

How nice is it to know that you’ve purchased something  that hasn’t been mass-produced and seen in every mall across the country!

It’s all about supporting local businesses !!!!!

    Love the collective display. You are so right on to support small businesses and local artists – the very soul of any community!

  2. I like the vintage prints, especially with your lamp! I agree, it’s great to support local businesses and artists. Here in the States, everything’s getting so homogenized.
