The story of us first started back in December of 2018. I had just completed my High School education and decided that I needed something to cure my boredom as over the summer, as I was only working part-time. We started out as purely scrunchies, mainly selling to family, friends and the lovely people of my hometown, in the Flinders Ranges, South Australia. On a whim, I got a job as a Governess in the Far North of South Australia, on the Oodnadatta track. I was fortunate enough to be able to pack my gear and take it with me.
In the May of 2019, I was leaving to head to America to work for their Summer at a summer camp and had decided to put aside my little side hustle for the time being.
When I returned in the September, I knew that I wanted to make something more of this little hobby and got to work on making new products and spreading the word of what was at the time, just Coco Crazzy. As time went by, we developed into making silicone beaded products, including keyring, lanyards and baby teething products, a few little bags here and there, and of course our most popular products: SunSafe neck scarves, handmade crocheted headbands and button earrings. Over the summer, we try and make it to as many local and distant markets to spread our name and gain more exposure around the country.
We are still currently based on the Oodnadatta track, working from my little room in the middle of nowhere, but loving every minute of it. We currently have customers all over the country, with parcels of going to goodies to girls in every state, who we know will love them as much as we do.
There's still so much growing for us to do, but I can't wait to see what the future holds for our little fun, quirky and out there company.
