Holly and Tyrone established The Goodness Bureau in 2013 and since then has grown into a creative hub with a focus on handmade ethical products and gifts!
The Goodness Bureau is located in High Street Thornbury, such a great little shop which has been carefully curated with a collection of unique products, designed and hand-crafted by local artists and designers. The unique products have been created with kindness, free from harmful chemicals, animal testing, animal based-ingredients and are kind to the people involved in the supply chain!
When you step inside the store, it has a very relaxed vibe. Holly and Tyrone are there to help you make a decision if you are tossing up between products or would like to know a little more about the markers. They are passionate about sourcing locally made goodness.
Everything The Goodness Bureau stocks strives to meet the following;
Vegan No nasty chemicals No palm-oil Sustainable Packaging
Ethical sourcing of ingredients Ethical production processors To support local producers
To support developing communities here and offshore
Crafternoon sessions are held on Sundays in the back of the shop, where anyone interested in getting creative can meet up for 3 hours and either bring an existing project or work on something new! attended several workshops last year and made everything from beaded necklaces to pencil cases and macrame plant hangers. Run by the talented Melbourne textile designer Roz Slade from Be Kind Textiles., her philosophy focuses on sharing the importance of the connection people have with textiles and the appreciation for the handcrafted.
