Something good comes from everything! If it weren’t for the drought, Spinifex Collections would not exist. In 2002, Sue Smith brought her dressmaking to town in the hope of creating some cash flow for her family’s drought stricken wool growing property. With four children at boarding school, it wasn’t long before Sue realized that even 18 hour days weren’t going to cut it financially. She purchased jewellery & accessories to compliment the outfits she sewed & that was the start of the creation of Spinifex Collections – the best little gift shop in the world! This led to stocking gifts & homewares from around the world, but specializing in those from Australia & locally made too - leather work, ceramics, glassware, jewellery, semi-precious stones, brass & bronze, silver & pewter, painting & photography.
