| CHRISTMAS PRIZEAPOLOOZA | Knot up some Succulents

Karen Brouff is a busy lady and has not one but two excellent businesses in this year’s prizeapolooza That Succulent Place and Knots with Style.

That Succulent Place provides beautiful quality Succulents and Cacti. Karen grows her own succulents and cacti, and propagate regularly from them. She also sources succulents and cacti from other home based growers as well as her parent’s extensive collection from Warren, Central West NSW.

Quality & rarer succulents and cacti are hard to come by in our local area, so That Succulent Place loves to fill that succulent need.

That Succulent Place creates beautiful Terrariums. She recycles and uses old casserole bowls, Jars, anything that will suitably host a succulent! Karen’s father, Doug creates amazing wooden Log Pots, Sourced from a Property in Warren, NSW, that he has worked on for the past 58 years. His amazing, unique creations, along with Karen’s succulents and cacti, make the most gorgeous and one off gifts and home décor.

The succulents, cacti and log pots have become very popular and people even come from Sydney, Canberra and all around to purchase something unique and special.

That Succulent Place will even create custom orders, in both Terrariums and timber pots.

That Succulent Place is always open for business; a quick message to organise a day and time to come out to Eglinton is never a problem. She also has regular open weekends, which you can find details about on her facebook page.

Knots with Style began from a hobby and she now holds regular workshops, both locally and out in Central West NSW at Warren, Narromine and Dubbo. Karen says she loves to teach macramé.

Karen takes great pride in both her businesses supplying quality handmade products. She says she loves seeing customer’s reactions when they buy a product from her, and the enjoyment people get from making their own macramé creations when they attend a workshop.

One of the best things about That Succulent Place and Knots with Style is how much Karen supports other local businesses. She chooses to source succulents from other home based growers, and macramé supplies from independently owned craft and fibre businesses. She also supports the “buy from the bush” and “One Day Closer to Rain, (Drought), Rural Cottage Crafts initiative, and her parents create succulent arrangements with materials sourced from the community of Warren NSW. All of the wood arrangements have a story of where the materials were sourced from, highlighting Warren.

2020 is lining up to be exciting year with regular workshops in 2020 and the release of various new collections including a nursery/children’s collection.

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2018} Pop Up Succulent Lovin’

A little while ago I developed an addiction. A really strong addiction and I blame the gorgeous Renelle at Pop Up Succulent Shop. 

Renelle has got me obsessed with all things succulent! 

Located in Bathurst Pop Up Succulent Shop offers unique arrangements, wreaths, Kokedamas and terrariums. She can help you decorate your wedding or party and creates the most magnificent gifts. 

My most favourite thing about Pop Up Succulent Shop are the workshops. These are great opportunities to learn some new skills while creating your very own masterpiece. 

I will forever remember my first workshop with Renelle, my eyes were open to so much succulent knowledge in a friendly, fun environment. I took my mum and we both had the best afternoon.

{Locally Found} Succulent Love

Recently I was invited to my very first succulent workshop with the beautiful Renelle at Pop-Up Succulent Shop to say I had a brilliant afternoon would be such an understatement.

1

Upon arriving you are met with a glass of bubbles and a delicious cheese & fruit platter (she won me over right there!). Before long I forgot I was in a class and it felt much more like I was in my friend’s lounge room having a few drinks and learning some new things about gardening.

2

Renelle was patient and explained perfectly what we had to do. She answered ALL my probably ridiculous questions and even helped me when I realised things for my kokedama were not quite going according to plan!

My mum came with me and quickly we made friends with the other people at the workshop, that’s the thing you see it was relaxed and friendly. There were no strangers just friends we were yet to meet.  4

Renelle supplies everything you need to make two kokedamas and she even gives some good hints on how to wrap other plants you buy to make great gifts or house plants.

I am far from a good gardener but bloody hell I was proud when I came home and showed the hubs and kids what I had made. I now very proudly have two kokedamas in my kitchen and each and every time I look at them I get all warm and fuzzy and remember the great afternoon I had.

Make sure you grab a pal and check out one of the workshops offered by Renelle at  Pop-Up Succulent Shop. She holds a range of workshops including kokedamas, wreath and general potting classes.

You can also have a chat to Renelle at many markets and events she attends around our area.
