Entitled - Lifes Little Luxuries In Big Demand.......
I had a lovely mention and short interview with the Sun Herald last week, and lots of gorgeous piccies taken.
To be mentioned in the same article as the gorgeous - Absolutely Beautiful Things Blog, was a real treat, to think that my store is up there with the best in Brissy.
So thank you to Ellen who arranged and interviewed me. It so nice to have a small but worthwhile moment of fame. -
"On the Gold Coast, customers of online fabric shop owner Susie Wren are stocking up on pretty fabrics which they use to make their own cushions, curtains and artwork.
"We still want to surround ourselves with beautiful things, such as gorgeous cushions - but these things are expensive. Not everyone can afford to spend $150 on a single cushion," Ms Wren said.
"I get ladies buying small amounts of expensive designer fabrics to sew into their own cushions at a fraction of the price.
"If they have any scraps left over, they can create their own artwork out of it.
"There really has been a resurgence of women coming back to craft, sewing and the like, to try to save money, while still getting their fill of pretty things."
Ms Wren, who started her shop ijustlovethatfabric.com.au in 2008, is planning to open a shopfront - but she admits now is probably not the time. "The economy is a bit shaky to be opening a new shop I feel, although I do want to do it eventually," she said.
"At the moment, I'm doing well and am very busy just working online with my customers. The demand for beautiful things is still high but my customers want to do it in a more creative and inexpensive way."
