Remember the sound of your suitcase wheels turning as you walk down the airport corridor? And the announcement over the loud speaker: “now boarding through gate 33”? For many of us, travel seems like a distant memory. With the reopening of state and international borders, many of us will travel this Summer for the first time in years. It’s likely you’re in need of new travel luggage and a holiday wardrobe refresh.
Saskia Boutique in East Bundaberg is newly stocked with Louenhide’s latest range of cross body, handbags, toiletry, laptop and travel bags. Functional and beautiful, Louenhide accessories help women feel organised, confident and ready to face the day.
Long haul travel requires comfortable clothing that makes you feel great. Pair a one size (8-16) flowing, linen dress from the JJ Sisters with a pair of glitzy sneakers, lightweight scarf and artisan jewellery.
If you’re staying put to spend the Summer with your family, you can add a little foreign flare to your home with Wonki Ware, made in South Africa by Diane Marshall Pottery. Bring the tropical resort to you with some faux greenery and sparkling glassware.
Saskia isn’t only a store for locals. Countless tourists and visitors to the Bundaberg Region have fallen in love with the stylish homewares and clothing purveyor. After 11 years in business and countless requests from out-of-town shoppers, the Boutique’s founder Saskia dePaoli (pictured) is launching an online store. “We get phone calls every week from ladies who discovered our store on holidays. They’ve seen our items on Instagram or Facebook, fabulous things they can’t get back home, so they pay for it over the phone and we send it to them,” Saskia said. “Our online store will give ladies convenient access to our full range from anywhere in the country.”
