It's not often that business relationships turn into friendships. But when you strike up a connection with someone for business purposes to find that you also get on with them like a house on fire, well I consider that a massive win. So please give a very warm welcome to the newest sponsors to the blog, Stars & Swallows. You may remember the name from the pair of original Don Featherstone lawn flamingos they so kindly donated to my big Christmas giveaway (which you still have time to enter). May I just say, get used to hearing their name and not just from me! As a long time reader of the blog, I couldn't be happier to partner up with the brains and beauty behind this brand, Tracey.
This lovely lady runs the brand with her rather tatted up hubby and with such lovely people behind the business, you'll be as impressed as I was with their service. And after hearing the story of how Stars & Swallows began, that really sealed the deal. Tracey was a rockabilly lovin' gal with a definite sense of style but was frustrated with the lack of product available, the high postage costs for overseas brands and the sinking feeling of showing up to an event only to see someone else wearing the same thing. So what's a girl to do? Start her own business of course!
Stars & Swallows are on a mission to bring quality, affordable clothing, beauty, jewellery, homewares and accessories to rockabilly kats and kittens. All items are in stock, so there's none of this pre-order and wait 3 weeks nonsense! Place your order online and receive it promptly and with all items sent registered or express post, you'll never have to worry about Australia Post 'misplacing' an item ever again! As an online shopping afficionado, this is music to my ears!
Because Tracey is so passionate about the need for quality, low prices and originality you can be sure that all your favourite brands like Heartbreaker, Hell Bunny, Sourpuss, Collectif, Rock Steady, Folter, Lucky 13, Fluff, Besame and more are available. Not to mention, Tracey personally sources all of their stock to offer a more diverse range, not just the usual fare you see popping up in all the usual shops. Which means avoiding that awkward moment of spotting someone in the same dress as you.
New products are constantly being added to their range so check the website regularly. Also, these guys are so friendly that if there's something in particular you're looking for and they don't stock it, you can just send them an email and they'll do their very best to source it for you. Now THAT'S customer service!
Stars & Swallows offer a great range of mens and womens clothing and accessories as well as some stuff for the kids and a range of homewares and knick knacks. Best of all they're a small local business so they're well worth supporting.
Go shopping and spoil yourself and feel good while doing it!
