A PINOT NOIR WITH SARA FROM LUXE HAMPER EMPORIUM
What is your drink of choice?
To start the day a strong flat white, there is just something soothing about sipping on a hot coffee planning out the day ahead. To finish off the day a glass of pinot noir.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
Born and raised in Melbourne, I come from a background of family owned businesses. My father has always been my inspiration, I would always go to work with him from a young age and watched how he worked so hard to create for us children a wonderful childhood. He always encouraged me to be my own boss and upon returning from living in Europe at the age of 18 I bought a little cafe on Chapel St in Melbourne and there began my own experience of owning a small business for 3 years loved every second. Mum to a four year old Pia she is the most gentlest, caring and kindest soul so proud to be her mum. She lights up my world every single day.
Tell us about Luxe Hamper emporium and how it came to be?
For a long time I have always wanted to get back to owning my own business. Giving gifts has always been something I have loved doing, it allows me to bring out my creative side. Few years ago I wrote out a list of items I would put in some gift hampers and toyed with the idea of starting a business. Last year I spent a lot of time researching products, hand selecting products and custom designing our Luxe gift boxes and keepsake wood boxes which are made locally here in Australia. I’m all about supporting local businesses rather than importing from overseas. To me it's also really important to really love what you do.
How can we support Luxe Hamper emporium?
You can shop our pre-curated gift hampers or get in touch for custom business gifting options. There is a lot more planned for Luxe Hamper Emporium so stay tuned. A like, share and follow on Instagram is always greatly appreciated by a small business.
Any advice for those wanting to turn their dream into a reality?
It may seem a little scary at first to start your own business but go for it and remember if you're passionate about it the rest will follow. People will be willing to give you advice however remember it's your dream to start with, do you. Set goals, put together a solid plan, love what you do and have a no plan B make it work x
