When life changes, you need to adapt. Adaptation has been part of my life since marrying into the 'defence family' over 15 years ago.
For those who married into essential services, defence, AFP, you know what Im talking about.
I'm originally from Adelaide, South Australia, and moved to Sydney for work back in 2001. From here, defence life took us to the United Kingdom, and then back regional NSW. After many years of hubby working in Canberra, and me being on the Coast with the kids, I decided to pack up and move to Canberra.
This is where I made another life altering decision and brought an established retail gift store called Living in Style. Going into retail after steady jobs, was a huge risk, but hey Im still here !
After 5 months of owning the shop, I decided to change the name of the business to Lilly Cooper, and put my own little bit of me into the shop.
So now three years later, here we are, I love my gifts and homewares store and love seeing my customers and visitors who visit.
I am a true small local business, Im here 6/7 days a week and I love selecting all my wares for you.
