Wish Upon a Store

Hi, and Welcome. We’re the local online artisan marketplace for the beautiful Southern Regions of WA and we’re here to help boost the local economy. Why? For that little girl above. 

 

We aim to help create a more sustainable home for our children. To be everyday custodians of our beautiful planet where everyone and every thing can thrive, without it costing us or the Earth. Supporting local is one of the most effective ways, so we’re showcasing amazing local artisans, makers and producers like YOU.

Local Benefits

 

#1 Here’s to a more level playing field.

Local products in a class of their own not competing with mass production.

 

#2 Helps raise awareness of local product.

So much to choose from, it helps to put local forward and get to know our creators.

 

#3 Easier to compare true costs when local products together.

Yep, better together. Is non-local mass-produced  really  cheaper considering shipping costs, travel miles and the hidden benefits?

 

#4 Supports our local creators.

We aim to be a business incubator that helps new and startup businesses to develop by providing a low-risk space.

 

#5 Products that LOVE YOU BACK!

Unconditional love from a product? We’ll go there! With ethical, organic and more sustainable products that not only love you, but the environment too. What’s not to love about that?
