About Us

The Collective Store- not your average gift shop…

Walk through the door of The Collective Store and find yourself on a journey of discovery into the world of handmade, eclectic and meaningful gifts made with love, passion and heart.  Belinda knew that the minute she stepped into The Collective Store that it was something special .  A collection of over 100 Australian designers, makers and artists.

 After her first visit she was back for every Birthday, Christmas & teacher gift,  even when she needed some retail therapy for herself.  She was officially sold on Australian handmade! The truth is after working in corporate for so long and after a huge personal health journey she knew there had to be something else. Bringing together her abilities in working with people, managing relationships, juggling ever changing priorities simultaneously and her passion for beautiful things and fashion she knew she had to be part of something bigger.  Being a local of Wynnum and having two boys at school in the community it gave her a vested interest in seeing the local makers, and in particular, women in business thrive. Together with Amy who provides a personalised customer service and does such an amazing job of making the store look amazing, not to mention her ability to make a bow like no-ones business this is a gift shop with bravery, heart and a bit of a collective difference.

Belinda’s ‘why’… as a ‘reforming shopaholic’ Belinda had a chance meeting of a sustainable fashion guru which got her thinking about her shopping habits, the impact to the planet and how little of anything is made here in Australia.  “I saw the need for a shopping experience with all the choice that Instagram has for showcasing hand made makers but with a human connection and the added perks like gift wrapping & air con!” 2020 has brought the opportunity to fuse another of Belinda’s passion projects ‘Give a frock’ a circular clothing project that you can now shop at The Collective Store.  “ I tell people they will need at least 45 mins to see all that this store has to offer!”

 The dream is to continue the 9 year history of The Collective Store supporting some amazing ethical Australian designers who juggle their families, day jobs and commitments with their side hustles, passion projects and ultimately their dream: creating beautiful things in Australia.   “Many of our makers have a commitment to sustainability, are homegrown, design their own prints and fabrics. These are Jacks and Jills of all trade running all facets of their business,  it’s an honour to represent their brands. I hope to increase the exposure for these artists and uncover more hidden gems!”  

A final message from The Collective Store Owner- Belinda, “Live with no regrets!” Even in the short time we’ve been in business we’ve overcome massive adversity, the bush fires, the Corona virus that’s seen us diversify our service to allow personal shopping with non contact delivery but we continue to strive to do our best and support our artisans, the Australian economy and our customers with ways to support local and shop small.  More now than ever it’s time to support a small Australian business. If you’ve heard that saying every time you buy from a small business an actual person does a little happy dance – that’s true – we welcome you to come do a little happy dance with us at…

The Collective Store.

Stylish quality up cycled fashion at bargain prices!  We will also be a collection point for Give A Frock. Which means that if you have quality preloved fashion that you have been hoarding for a while ... spent to much to throw it out ... hope to wear it again or concerned about the impact your Lycra will have in landfill for the next 30 years! Bring it in to us and you could even get some $$$ back for it.

We are still open, but we would like to offer you another service to help your shopping experience.

So, here are some changes to the way you can shop with us, that will benefit both of us.

We are more than happy to personally deliver to your door (within a 15km radius of the store, if you are further give us a call and we will work something out!) We are happy to offer call and collect and meet you in the carpark (covert style 😊) As The Collective Store, we work for the collective, we are here and happy to help how we can! Please call us if you need a gift or see something on our Facebook or Instagram that you fancy.

Over the next few days / weeks we will be uploading a heap of pictures of the products currently in store so you can shop from home! You may not be able to buy loo roll, but we have loads of cool earrings ready to go! 😊 #supportthemakers #buylocal #wynnum
