Nestled in one of Hobart’s busy main streets is Wanderlust Trading Company Australia, a boho luxe boutique store that feels as though you have stepped into Byron Bay. Words really can’t describe how beautiful and peaceful this store really is.
We had the pleasure of chatting with owner Megan, who runs this store along with her fantastic team of six.
‘Our experience here is different from a big store, it’s meant to be very personal and we are really customer-oriented. We like to have fun with our customers. It’s not really about making a sale to us, it’s more about that customer leaving with a really positive experience’, said Megan.
You will find a beautiful array of Australian brands in-store with a focus on offering fashion pieces that are sustainable. They are the exclusive stockist of Spell Design, a Byron Bay brand. Aside from fashion, you will find a range of giftware, candles, jewellery and body oils.
Megan studied commerce law at university and is currently a full-time lawyer as well. ‘I just felt like something was missing in my life because I’ve got a really creative side to me, as well as an academic side. I felt like I needed that balance. It’s something that I have always wanted to do, something I have always dreamed about’, said Megan.
Megan started this business from scratch. Her husband is a builder, so together they created the shop into what it is today – a store with a beachy natural feel with a luxe feeling attached alongside. ‘I like to think of the store as not a store filled with clothes or things, but rather that it has got a real soul to it’, Megan beautifully told us.
At the moment, one of Megan’s favourite fashion pieces in-store is the beautiful kimonos. They are a lovely way to add something colourful and a bit different to an outfit.
Be sure to give Megan and her a team a visit next time you need that special fashion piece. You can find Wanderlust at 135 Liverpool Street, Hobart.
