Community retail space promoting Fraser Coast entrepreneurs to becoming movers & shakers in commerce

July 2nd, 2018

A COMMUNITY run shop focussed in promoting local businesses, organisations and talent – that’s what the Wandering Teapot is going to be they say.

The unique dedicated retail space is scheduled to open inside Stockland Hervey Bay in September.

It will feature a display of cubes – each has its own shelf – with each to be rented out to be used for promotion by groups, businesses and individuals.

Once occupied by social enterprises and local entrepreneurs, the cubes will resemble a life-sized noticeboard.

Fundraising towards the Community Cubed by Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre is in progress, hoping to hit a target goal of $43,000.

Hervey Bay Neighbourhood Centre CEO Tanya Stevenson said the there will be 80 cubes, ranging in size to handle different forms of displays.

There will be an interview process to secure a spot in the display, with successful applicants to also receive mentorship and business support.

“The intention is to to help people become self-sustainable and help them grow their businesses,” Ms Stevenson said.

“Rather than setting-up a pop up shop, you could instead rent a cube which would be far cheaper.

“There will be some bigger cubes available to cater to products, for example if someone is selling clothes.”

People will be hired to run & operate the Wandering Teapot as well.

The intention is for the Wandering Teapot to also be the host location of seminars, events and networking.

A crowd funding page has also been set-up, which can be found here.

MARYBOROUGH COMMERCIAL CITY PEOPLE SHOW APPRECIATION FOR HELP AFTER FLOODS

February 21st, 2013

COMMERCIAL BUSINESS PEOPLE IN MARYBOROUGH SHOW THEIR APPRECIATION FOR HELP AFTER THE RECENT FLOODS

Maryborough CBD shop owners Julianne Sutcliffe, Kevin Vincent, Anne Proctor, Andrew and Allison Duggan, Lida Nielsen, Claudia Davidson and Darren Smith are postive about their future.

COMMUNITY spirit and the will to work shoulder to shoulder with retailers have Maryborough’s central business district shops back in business.

Most are trading as normal, while others are only days away from doing so.

But all have one thing in common – they want to say a big thank-you to those who helped out during the biggest flood in 60 years.

On Australia Day this year, as the rains came down and the winds howled, business owners, staff and volunteers moved stock and fittings out of shops that were in danger of being inundated with the muddy floodwaters of the Mary River.

Most of those people were back several days later, along with the army to help clean-up the aftermath.

TSG Tobacco Station owner Kevin Vincent said it took some work.

“The support I received from customers was excellent,” he said.

“We had a metre-and-a-half of water in the shop.

“I had a guy who I didn’t know from a bar of soap offer me a container and storage space for the entire contents of my shop.”

Mr Vincent said businesses saw the community as priority number one.

“I had specially designed cabinets made and fitted within a week after the water subsided,” he said.

“You can’t beat that community spirit.”

Jane-Ellen Proctor of Anne’s Irresistible Lingerie said the cellar was full and there were a few metres of water in the shop.

“Mum and I weren’t even in Maryborough, we were stranded out of town,” Ms Proctor said.

“Family, employees and total strangers moved all the stock out.

“We came home to mum’s double garage full of bras, undies and dolls.”

Ms Proctor said people came from everywhere to help.

“It has restored my faith in the town,” she said.

“Now it’s just one foot in front of the other – it’s good to see everyone getting back on board.”

DONALD TRUMP-ANTHONY ROBBINS-ROBERT KYOSAKI [RICH DAD POOR DAD FAME] HERE IN AUSTRALIA AT ONE EVENT,BE THERE…!

June 17th, 2011

Hi money makers & motivated people. Don’t miss this event.



This is  HUGE!

These people are coming to Australia
Probably likely to be the BIGGEST success and MONEY event ever in this country.

You can check it out here.

…and it’s not surprising when you hear the lineup.

For the first time ever, Donald Trump is coming to Australia.

Add to that, the global phenomena of Rich Dad Poor Dad fame, Robert Kiyosaki with his wife Kim Kiyosaki.

…and the success icon of our generation, Anthony Robbins.

All on one stage, all LIVE, all here in AUSTRALIA.

Now that lineup alone is enough to get your attention and start making your plans to attend.

So go to this website now to find out more about the event.

But don’t dilly-dally, I just got off the phone with the promoter, Michael Burnett and 5,315 tickets have already been SOLD. (As a seminar producer, I’m drooling with envy).

…add to that 3,000 tickets currently being held by several major corporations and the fact that the venue only holds 10,000, the event is effectively 80% sold out.

That’s why I’m rushing this email to you on a Friday.

Grab your seat today!
