| 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.

My husband and I used Kellie Gibson Graphic Design when we needed our business to have a refresh. It was funny, we didn’t even know what we wanted, but thankfully Kel was able to work with us to create something better than we ever could have thought.
