One of our favourite stockists, Summer House in Noosa, is closing down after 16 years in business. I feel quite sad at this news as I know that many of our customers have been struggling and that affects us and our suppliers too.
I really can't tell you how important it is to support your local and small businesses before it's too late. The on-line shopping may seem cheap now but what happens when the American dollar rises again and all your local favourites are gone? Do you think I'm exaggerating?
Meanwhile, if you're in Noosa, pop in to Summer House (blogged about here) and grab a bargain! Sale is on until the store closes at the end of June.
