This site is about the small guys, the largest employer in the country is Small Business. We won’t have an economy if we don’t have the small business. 

Australia needs to start waking up and looking after the little guy, the local corner shop, the local butcher, the local farmer’s markets. If you do not shop there, one day they will just be gone!!

Our locally handmade stainless steel “crochead” mosquito coil holder has been rejected by Big Box conglomerates, why you ask?? Basically because…..
  • it is not disposable so you do not break it and need to buy another one
  • it is not from china and costs only 2 cents so they can mark it up by 400% and make super profits
  • it is their choice to not support their local economies who are supporting them
  • it is all about greed and money – dictating to the market rather than the consumer market dictating to them

As these Big box stores are popping up over the country, changing the landscape as they go. Pushing out the small independent retailers with their cheap chinese imports, as these products flood the market and the consumer corporations make record profits with their super retail groups. The corner stores are disappearing, local hardware shops just aren’t seen near a Bunnings or Masters.

When you support your community by shopping locally, the community supports you. It really is that simple.
