Pampering pleasures for women
THERE may have been tractors, trucks and tools at the Ag-Grow fields last week, but the women were also looked after with stalls ready to entice them with homewares, antiques and beauty products.
Kerrie Hayes, Genesis Hair Design owner and co-owner of homewares store Kennedy & Grace with Trish Daunt, was among the stallholders catering to the female attendees.
Kerrie said they were excited to bring Kennedy & Grace to Ag-Grow for the first time because they had had so much success with their Genesis stall for the past five years.
"It's really exciting because we've only been open (with the new store) for six months," Kerrie said.
The rustic homewares blended into the hair salon station set-up in the corner with hair products, make-up and brushes framing the mirror, which was lit up with bright bulbs.
It was a welcome sight for all the women shielding themselves from the wet weather outside as they wandered into the pavilion.
"We catch up with all our country women, and we hope to bring a bit of groove to Ag-Grow," Kerrie said with a laugh.
"They love all the things for their homes."
Kerrie said it was nice to catch up with locals and display the new business's wares.
"We have a very different range of homewares," she said.
"Ag-Grow is great to get out and promote some of them to new customers.
"We have couches in store you can buy and upholster in a range of different materials, and coffee tables made to order. There is definitely a mix in the store.
"Ag-Grow is very social and we have such a lovely time each year here."
