It’s seven days a week for Collie Anne owner/operator Colleen. There’s the hand-selecting of garments, accessories and giftware and making sure that every item in her beautiful Dromana Hub store is just right. There’s no cutting corners or settling for second best for this businesswoman, who began selling jewellery 15 years ago with her Collie Anne Jewellery line. She’s come a long way since doing the rounds of markets and selling in-home. Collie Anne has been open for four years now and delivers exceptional product, which is sourced locally and overseas. Colleen explains.
“You’ve got to be passionate and love what you do. I absolutely adore hand-selecting our stock. Every piece is chosen by me. I still get just as much joy from seeing a customer walk out of the store with something they love. It makes all the work worthwhile. Since opening, (husband) Rory and I have expanded. We did a fashion show for the Dromana Bowls Club last year and will be doing more in 2019. I’ve brought in more natural fibres, including lines from Italy, France and America. It’s about continually offering something new and offering exceptional quality. You’ve got to work hard at making sure your customers are happy.”
And they are. Collie Anne has an incredibly loyal client base because of the fabulous product, great staff and uniquely stress-free in-store environment where passion and creativity reign.
