About Us

We are a family business, transplanted from the South Australian Coast to the Alpine Region of North East Victoria. We are passionate about the 'bricks and mortar' shopping experience which we have created in our store The Village Trader. Our store is an eclectic and unique space stocking everything from lunchboxes to face cream. But underpinning it all is conscious and sustainable living. We are not intending to to reproduce our store online, we only want to provide an outlet for our more unique products. 

The lobster rope mat collection is so special to us, it has provided my father with occupation and a creative outlet that he never even realised he needed. But now his shed is full so it is time to share them with everyone!
