A daisy a day: Mickey Raes

Spring is now here, and the long weekends and holiday fever are just around the corner.

Approaching six years in the retail business in Hanmer Springs, Mickey Raes is in full-on spring flower mode, with a multitude of exclusive and colourful ornamental daisies spinning cheerfully in the breeze outside the shop. These long-lasting flowers have been finding new homes at the rate of a daisy a day, reminiscent of Jud Strunk’s folk song.

Owner Wendy Lamont says the Hanmer Springs fete is fast approaching, although currently the village is like a fairy tale setting of quiet and tranquillity. “Locals and tourists, including many Australians, have been flocking back post-Covid-19, and it is lovely to welcome them here. We’re receiving plenty of accolades about weathering the hard times,” she says, making her proud to part of the retail industry.

Crafting supplies are still a large part of the shop sales, for hobbies such as knitting, sewing, quilting, and painting. In store you’ll also find educational interactive books for children, unique jigsaw puzzles, Diamond Dotz, haberdashery, and cross stitch, along with gifts, homewares, baby clothing, and pet accessories. Stock changes regularly, as does the selection of gorgeous wedding accessories, hand-made by Wendy.

Visit the store in the Boulder Point Precinct, at 4/6 Chisholm Crescent, Hanmer Springs, call Wendy on 03 315 5383 or message her via Facebook.
