Thankyou for showing interest in our products! Let me introduce myself... My name is Zoe and I am a mum to three little babes. We are a 100% Australian owned family based business. Willow & Beech is named after my two eldest kids, (you guessed it... Willow and Beech) and in September 2016 welcomed our youngest addition, Boston to the tribe.
A bit of history... I initially completed my Diploma in Interior Design in 2010 while I was expecting my first baby (Willow). She arrived in December 2010. My career went on hold so that I could focus on the job I loved, being a mum, and 16 months after having Willow, I welcomed my son, Beech, in April 2012. First and foremost I was a stay at home mum but I picked up some contracts with some local builders as their Interior Designers as well as larger commercial projects.
I still dabble in Interior Design and Colour Consulting but I found my passion was in the home decor items so in 2014 I began sourcing suppliers and ordering products to find items that I was passionate about and wanted to share with others. This was a relatively slow process as I was being particular about the items I wanted to sell which ranged from handmade products made by both locals to internationally sourced items.
By late November 2015 I opened my store 'Willow & Beech'. At that time the store was my focus and I had not yet transitioned to online. Not long after opening I fell pregnant with baby Boston and was so ill I was unable to work. I was offered the opportunity to run my store through a local cafe, which I jumped on so that I could take time out through my rough pregnancy without closing the doors.
While I was having time off I continued sourcing and ordering products daily, to both fill my store and I began ordering excess stock to begin my online venture. I had started gaining a following and felt that while I was home with two children with a third on the way, an online store was a great way for me to expand my business without me needing to man a store all day. By mid 2016, with the support of my (patient & tech savvy partner) we launched our online store. It took me a while to grasp online marketing and social media, but today we have such a wonderful support base for our family run business.
I still operate out of the Cafe as well as having another store in the same complex. I am passionate about Handmade items and stock a large range of goods made by locals as well as a range of coastal, boho, tribal and unique wooden pieces.
