A while back I posted that Lyssy May had been nominated for a Quest Newspapers Business Achiever award and I forgot to follow up and let you know that I made it through to be a finalist - very exciting!
The awards dinner was held last night and whilst I didn't take out the top prize I was very humbled to see my little store up there on the big screen! Being nominated in a fashion category felt a bit strange as my store is such an eclectic mix of accessories and gifts - when I think fashion, I think 'Sass and Bide' etc! Lyssy May was nominated alongside local favourites like Mother and Child, Thousand Island Dressing, Moo and Bear, Shugah Boutique and the winners, Ashleigh De Ne (congratulations ladies!).
As you may have seen in the local mags and on my website, my little store is soon to close as a I am heading off to Melbourne! More news to come on this but I wanted to make special note in this posting to thank those that nominated me for the award as it is a nice high point to nearly 4 years in Morningside. Plus I wanted to thank the team at Quest who have over the time run some great articles on my business - in particular Jessica Lim and her shop girl column (pics from her article on my made to order service on the right) and also Sarah from Image Magazine who has been a great advocate for my store and has always had some great advertising deals for me - thank you!
