One last little post… with Christmas approaching we stumbled upon this story in the Canberra Times of an inspirational rural woman from Cooma who is building a successful business… despite living in a small country town. We hope you enjoy it too.

“The countdown to Christmas is particularly frenetic in the Cay household – Jane Cay is overseeing her successful online fashion retail business birdsnest and husband Oliver (”Oli”) is busy making sure thousands of sheep are shorn on time. Cooma is the unlikely location for a burgeoning internet-based fashion house but Jane has made it work and revelled in being able to foster a business in a regional setting – and how.”

  1. I used to travel frequently between Gippsland in Victoria and Bowral, NSW. Cooma was always a stopping place. That’s how I discovered the beautiful Birdsnest in the main street. Many times I did shopping there because work in Gippsland was so busy and Birdsnest was such a vibrant and interesting store. Congratulations to Jane for taking her great local business successfully to the internet. Phoenix
