Just this week I spent two very relaxing and special days in Torquay. On the way up we stopped off in Barwon heads for a delicious lunch and some window shopping. Little did I know I would stumble across an array of stunning home wares and clothing stores.. right up my alley! I had my camera with me and so of course started snapping away. One of my favorite boutiques I came across was a gorgeous family owned store called Rigby’s.
I met with Laura, who explained to me that her mother/Owner Merrilyn, was responsible for starting and running Rigby’s homewares “in 2000, trading from an old fibro shack in Barwon heads… Having been at the same address since day dot our customers have grown with us to now enjoy a much bigger new shop where we can spread ourselves out and stock an abundance of local and international brands.”
I could feel the love for the store and products, and I always loved to see a family owned/run business.
“We love colour, patterns, natural fibres and products with an interesting story behind them. Mum and I travel a few times a year sourcing new and exciting things. We really love our shop and are always on the lookout for different products. Either Mum or I are always here with help from the rest of the family when we go travelling”
Rigbys just turned thirteen this week and whats best is that they are in the process of getting an online shop which should be up and running in just a few months!
