So without further ado. Here is the first ever guest post this blog has had.
luxury brands in rural setting
Saturday October 8 from 10 am til 3pm
631 Cranmore Road, Bindi Bindi
Two friends sit chatting at the Moora Bakery
“I’d love to open a really lux home wares shop. Really, I just love the idea of being vicariously stylish…” muses one
“But how would you do that with the kids?” asks the other
“Hmmm, not sure, it’s just an idea of mine that won’t go away”
“Why don’t you try running it from home?”
And so the idea of Cranmore Home was conceived over a morning coffee after daycare drop-off. Luckily for me, I live in a beautiful, 104-year old, stone homestead on Cranmore Park, just north of Walebing on the Great Northern Highway. Luckily also, the girlfriend with whom I was having coffee is phenomenally talented with a swag of experience that includes introducing Scanlan and Theodore to Western Australia and sourcing clothing for Sana in Claremont, as well as possessing enviably wonderful taste.
The above mentioned friend, Bree, and I, Tracy, have decided to test the water with a ‘pop-up’ shop for one day only with divine homewares, clothing, antique prints, men’s and women’s fashion and art.
Fast forward, six weeks, uh-huh just six weeks!, and we are just two and a bit weeks away from our first weekend of Cranmore Home. We are opening up Cranmore Home on October 8 from 10 am til 3pm. We have had so much fun ‘shopping’ for Cranmore Home; beautiful classic clothing from Elk, fashion items from Zara Bryson and Father, some lust-worthy antiques pieces from Trowbridge Gallery, must-have items from Royal Doulton, Wedgwood and Waterford Crystal, inspired homewares from The Corner Store and fun, quirky giftware from Mozi and O-Check. We are blessed in our area with a terrifically active artistic community, with Natalie Tonkin and Nyree-Jane Taylor both exhibiting their work at Cranmore Home.
We’ve even tried to look professional and we’ve got a website for you to check out www.cranmore.com.au for more pics of our gorgeous wares.
Further contact details for Cranmore Home are also on the website if you would like to contact us for more information.
With slightly frenetically-busy warmest wishes
Bree and Tracy
