We are so pleased to introduce you to this little slice of ocean inspired goodness right at the start of the sunshine state and just over the border from our neck of the woods.
This is Salt Living…an interiors boutique catering to those who live & breathe the salty lifestyle…now that sounds like a perfect shop to us!
We chatted to owner Jacinta Bishop to find out the ins and outs of Salt Living life…(read on below)
WHO & WHERE…
Salt Living is a seaside home interiors boutique, for those who live by the sea!
We are located in The Strand at Coolangatta, on Marine Parade. Coolangatta is the most southern tip of the Gold Coast. Only 40 minutes from Byron Bay.
We are also online, visit us at saltliving.com.au
ABOUT THE AREA…
Coolangatta has incredible beaches, including a world class point break (the WSL tour stops here at Snapper every year for the Quicksilver and Roxy Pro)
We also have the pleasure of spotting dolphins and whales almost daily. I love that this place has a summer holiday vibe all year round!
Beautiful natural products for the home, made from sustainable materials like hemp, jute, bamboo, rattan, linen and wool.
We source mostly hand made, hand woven, hand dyed products made via Fair Trade Artisans or by Australian designers.
We are also proud stockists of Californian surf/swimwear label Seea. As well as Fig and Yarrow- an artisan line of small-batch, hand crafted, natural health and beauty products.
SOME GOOD ADVICE…
Love what you do!
Ensure your business is selling something you are passionate about, because you may end up working long hours and 7 days a week in the beginning.
Learn the art of work/life balance!
Try to separate your business from your personal life. Schedule in time for yourself, whether that be time spent outside/exercising, time with loved ones or time with your phone/wifi switched off. This way you can regularly recharge, preparing yourself for more productive work.
Be selective and stay true to yourself, your vision and your values.
Discover exactly who your customer/market is and focus on that always. You will never be able to cater to everyones tastes, needs or budget- so don’t even try to.
Have fun! Take a risk! If something fails, pick yourself up, learn from it and try again!
Beautiful beach houses and coastal architecture.
Hard working and successful entrepreneurs!
I am constantly inspired by people who have had a creative dream and have then successfully brought it to life!
Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful store with us Jacinta!
