Callie, Sue and Deb grew up in a beautiful part of the world in a place called Crowdy Head, which is about half an hour north of Taree. The three sisters are extremely close and have built up a business which is known as The Shed Luxe and is operated right here in Taree. The Shed Luxe is a collection of beautiful homewares, gifts, fashion accessories and women’s clothing. ‘We’ve all really had an interest in fashion firstly and then we have kind of moved into the homewares side of things which is becoming a faster passion for all of us really’. This shared passion for retail, design and quality are the values that inspired the sisters when starting The Shed Luxe.
The Shed Luxe have a really great location and when asked what it’s like running a business out of Taree, Callie, Sue and Deb all commented, ‘we’re surrounded by other fantastic businesses here as well and they all support us and we support them back. I think where we have the edge is our local people support us really strongly’.
The Shed Luxe found amazing support from locals and from individuals all across Australia, ‘we sell to Melbourne, we sell to Sydney, we sell to regional, Western Australia. Most of that selling for us is through social media’. Deb explains, that just because The Shed Luxe isn’t situated in the city it doesn’t mean that they can’t reach people in cities as their couriers deliver daily.
Beyond focusing on The Shed Luxe, Deb and her husband Andy were on the 2019 series of The Block which created amazing opportunities for the store. Deb shares that a lot items within their Block house were from The Shed Luxe as well as their collaboration with another Taree local business called HowsThatHouse, ‘my niece Tory and her partner Brad they have a business in Taree called HowsThatHouse and they make beautiful timber vanities and they made 2 for our Block house’.
Taree is situated on Biripi country and Deb’s husband Andy and their children are very proud Biripi people and have a strong connection to country. This is extremely important to The Shed Luxe family and is something that Deb is incredibly proud of.
Taree is a regional hub for design and quality with great access to amazing retailers and lots of creative making and selling beautiful products meaning there is no compromise on anything.
Callie, Sue and Deb love where they live and what they do. And they love Taree!
