22 Apr New lifestyle store a labour of love
IF you love beautiful boho homewares then Day Dream Vintage is the store for you.
Located at 1 Pacific Avenue in Tannum Sands, the lifestyle shop, which opened its doors earlier this month, sells everything from furniture and art to Australian-made beauty products, candles, and jewelry.
The store also supports local suppliers, and carries Boyne Island local range, Get On Board, which uses 200 year-old Camphor Laurel to make stunning grazing boards and chopping boards.
Owner Chanel Colombano, who moved back to the region at the start of 2021, said the response to the lifestyle shop has been phenomenal.
“I have had customers travel from as far as Biloela to visit the store; I’m so thankful for the community’s support,” she said.
Every piece sold in Day Dream Vintage has been personally selected by Chanel, who has a long-time passion for homewares and interior styling.
“The vision for the store has always been a warm, heartfelt space, that is uniquely me, what I love and what makes me happy,” she said.
“I’ve actually had quite a few requests for styling sessions since opening the store, so I’m considering introducing this as an additional service in the future.”
Chanel said even though opening a new business during a pandemic was not ideal, she was proud of herself for backing her vision.
“Over the past 14 months I think locals have become more conscious of the need to support local businesses,” she said.
“My lovely customers have been grateful to have somewhere local to shop, that supports a local family.
“And I am so glad that I was able to bring this store to our community and help create enjoyable spaces in our customers’ home.
“I would encourage anyone who is thinking of pursuing their dreams to go for it. I am so thankful I have.”
Day Dream Vintage is open Tuesdays to Fridays, 9am – 3pm, Saturdays, 9am – 2pm and Sunday, 10am – 2pm.
