Buy beautiful gifts - support a small business with heart
There's a new boutique in town in Oxley and it's 'just what they need' according to locals. Bowerbird opened it's doors earlier this month with a crowd who were clamouring to see what was inside the newly renovated brick building on Oxley Station Road. It's an eclectic mix of handmade, indie designed and gallery artworks which owner Jenn Shell says she has carefully chosen, just like the namesake bird of the store.
You will find Brisbane designers Each to Own, Core Jewellery and Myclectic among a raft of other talented individuals on the rustic tables and wooden clothing racks. There is so much to choose from you will definitely feel an impulse buy coming on as you feel the need to purchase something beautiful.
Jenn's own personal journey with the store started last year when her father was diagnosed with cancer and passed away at just 49. She felt encouraged to chase her dreams and to make the most of her own life by doing something which meant so much to her. This store is a testament to hard work and dedication to a dream as well as how a little idea can turn into something big with just a little bit of courage.
