As you make your way down the hallway & up the grand stair case, to fulfil you’re curiosity about what you’ll discover in this beautiful immersive space… you can be guaranteed you’re walking into a place that supports & fosters people right here in our community. Professional creatives working to earn an income doing what they’re passionate about, for you!
The inspiration to establish such a space came from my own experience of travelling to trade, lugging my wares across the state to trade at markets & festivals along side fellow creatives also travelling to trade. While the vagabond life was alluring the reality for a young family meant it wasn’t sustainable long term, many weekends spent on the road together were wonderful, but also meant little time was spent together at home, working one our little oasis was equally important, finding the balance was challenging.
Being new to the region with no family or existing support network, yet a desire to earn a living doing what inspires & ignites… while still be available for my children. Volunteering provided connection with our new community, but not the financial support family needed. Living in a rural town there’s limited options for employment.
So what’s a mother to do?
The answer – create her own career path, connect with others travelling the same uncharted waters & build a network of fellow professional creatives to support & encourage each other on this journey – which is both rewarding & challenging, simultaneously.
Creators Nest was my solution, providing a space that nurtures both our customers & local professional creatives, who’re genuinely making an effort to earn an income using their natural abilities & honed skills to provide customers with the option of buying quality crafted, uniquely designed and made to measure… along with the chance to meet the maker/designer.
A very different experience to that of fighting the crowds in a shopping mall, wading through the mass produced items made offshore… which unfortunately, we’ve become so accustomed to.
Since opening this beautiful store I’ve heard numerous ooohhh’s & ahhhh’s when people discover this special place where they can choose from a small selection of curated items, be guided in their choice to ensure it’s the right fit.
While most of our regular customers are female, we have a good number of men who enjoy the immersive & nurturing shopping experience too.
It’s such a pleasure assisting them make considered purchases, gifts for their loved ones, that’ll be treasured & appreciated.
Today, I wanted to share some photos with you, of what’s available in store at the moment & encourage you make time to take it all in, in person.
We’re offering extended trading hours over the next few weeks to give you more opportunity to visit.
Looking forward to seeing you in store soon…
Ps. When you buy from Creators Nest, the ripple affect throughout our community is greater than you can ever imagine.
