With the current lockdown restrictions in place, we can no longer pop into our favourite local shops and cafes in Perth for a browse and a natter. We too have had to close our Princes Street store to the public. However, just because we can’t support our local independent businesses and crafters in person. That doesn’t mean we can’t continue to share the Perth community by shopping online.
You know we love any excuse to shop and what better reason than to support local creatives and friends! As indie business owners ourselves, we can sympathise with the struggles that fellow businesses are facing and we know all too well that electrifying feeling when you choose to invest in our dream.
Heartfelt message out there, let’s take a look at some of Perth’s local businesses that you can enjoy through the powers of online shopping.
Please note: we cannot be held responsible for the spending spree about to take place!
The Bean Shop
The Bean Shop’s South American blend - yum!
What’s the secret to keeping up the lockdown energy? Starting every morning with a strong cup of coffee, of course! The Bean Shop hand roast delicious coffee blends here in Perth and with a wealth of experience in the bean business, they conjure up beautiful flavours every time.
