As of today I am officially no longer a member of The (amazing) Nook craft co-operative in Leura.
(Although my stock will still be there until we can go and pick it up on Sunday)
Being a member of The Nook was one of the best things I ever did for my jewellery business.
Being a co-operative we shared the costs and the tasks of running a retail business.
We take it in turns to man or woman the shop, so that we only need to be there one or two days a month.
The shop is in a great location - if you're not familiar with Leura, it is the best shopping village in the scenic Blue Mountains.
There were about 25 members when I first joined over 16 years ago, there are more than 35 now!
I have made such fabulous friends there.
It's been a blast.
PS. I forgot to say that the reason I have left is that we are leaving the beautiful Blue Mountains, for a travelling/retirement lifestyle!
