It’s our third birthday this week! And to say we’re excited is a little bit of an understatement.
When we opened NPJ Living’s doors three years ago, it was because we wanted to create a space that shared our love of style, fun and Australian made products, in our own community.
But there is more to our story, you see…
NPJ Living is the brainchild of Flemington local and property stylist, Jane Lynch, from Not Plain Jane. Before our little shop, Jane found herself constantly answering queries about where the items came from in houses she styled for sale.
Jane and our team saw potential for a retail space showcasing these items. Before we could think twice, a location popped up and what was once a ‘maybe’ idea, quickly turned into our bricks and mortar store on beautiful Pin Oak Crescent.
Finally, our treasured discoveries had a home!
Flash forward three years and NPJ Livingis a local spot of joy and well-made stuff in the leafy neighbourhood of Flemington.
Our little shop has grown with its community over the years and we have loved every second of it. We’ve watched babies turn into toddlers, celebrated engagements and graduations, and made many friends amongst our customers and community.
As time as passed, we’ve gradually been able to add products that celebrate the abundance of local talent in our own neighbourhood, Melbourne and the rest of this amazing country. We’ve also welcomed the challenge to make our store and the products we stock less wasteful and better for the planet.
But none of this would have been possible without YOU!
We want to say a huge thank you to our community for being a part of our story and shopping local with us for the last three years.
Thank you for helping us grow, and learn, and for supporting us along the way. We’ve had so much fun being that little shop in your hood.
