I have always loved shopping for treasures, especially in Asia and I started this business inadvertently thinking I would bring in a few products for a few friends and friends and ‘it went off like a frog in a sock’. So now I get to fulfill a passion for hunting out fabulous gorgeous things that allows me some flexibility to spend time with young family.
After years of bringing back such things for friends and family we decided to search the world (particularly Asia because I love its richness and uniqueness) to bring beautiful objects, gorgeous toys and gifts that make you go ‘wow’ for everyone to enjoy.
I am a bit of a corporate escapee, having had various executive marketing and strategy roles in a number of blue chip businesses in New Zealand and overseas and yes Ive worked the 70 hour week. I’ve had my own marketing and design agency so a startup wasn’t scarey but it is hard work, but it’s work I LOVE!
I’m no designer but I know what I love and my marketing and sales background helps me spot products that sell – and for me it’s about finding gorgeous products that are I believe are ‘affordable luxury’.
I hope you will come on this amazing journey I have started as we search for more gems to bring to New Zealand and Australia.
