We took a drive to Far North NSW and made a stop at the lovely little coastal town of Yamba. Where we meet our stockist Alisha of Willow Botanica…
Alisha’s favourite product.
Equilibrium Scented Soy Candle featuring the fragrance of Mandarin, Basil &
It’s slightly sweet and so fresh. Makes my house smell clean even if it isn’t!!
Best coffee in Yamba?
Drift. They also make amazing cauliflower tacos!
Alisha’s business journey...
I have been a florist ever since I left school. I purchased my first flower shop when I was 24. I knew nothing about running a business and made a lot of huge mistakes but managed to build the shop from a one woman show to a team of 7.
Most recently, I spent 2 years in Sydney, working for a large flower company in a corporate role. As much as I learnt and experienced, I realised the rush and pressure of city life wasn’t for me. Which brings me to Willow Botanica, the store I have always dreamed of having. I love being in Yamba, in my store, talking to my customers (which fast become friends!!).
Willow Botanica’s best-selling product...
Where will we find Alisha if not in-store?
I love fishing!!
My Dad and I have a permanent 3pm Sunday fishing date :)
A must see or do on a visit to Yamba
Walking the length of Pippi Beach to Flat Rock (or all the way to Angourie if you’re up to it). It truly is a magical soul cleansing place.
If you visit the beautiful town of Yamba, be sure to drop in and see Alisha at her beautiful store Willow Botanica. Make sure to mention we sent you!
