Kmart vs me?
Custom order completed - this little Australia will be living overseas! I loved making this one, so... If you are after a handcut golden Australia, I'm your girl! 🙌👧
OK, I will do other colours if I have to.... But.... Seriously - that golden glow 🤩
So anyway, I was walking through Kmart today, trying to wrap my head around how they can sell timber serving boards so cheaply, and how it made me feel sad as I feel like I can't compete with that.
My wise shopping companion told me I don't. Their products are mass produced in factories overseas. I don't need to even try and compete.
What I do is on a whole other level. That someone can order a piece totally custom designed to what they want is not something these big shops can do.
100% Guaranteed there is not another piece like this golden Australia in the whole world. I know that, because I drew this one by hand, cut it out, sanded it, and painted it. All me, in my tiny shed in Lambton.
Kmart vS me? 😏
I have lots of other gorgeous pieces ready for you - I do so hope to see you tomorrow @homegrownmarkets for a feast of fun, coffee, food and amazing artisan stalls (with products that you definitely won't find in Kmart). I love a Kmart bargain as much as the next girl, 🙋🏻♀️but I also know that purchasing quality local products makes a whole lot more sense, and is valued a thousand times more. Both from the maker AND the receiver.
So, shop small where you can this Christmas and make it count!
So, from my little solo woodworker "factory", have a lovely weekend. 😁
❤️ Kerrie 😘
