We are very happy to announce that we have acquired Diamond Dotz® Official Stockist status and have finally achieved our dream of being in our own shop in Stockland Shellharbour Shopping Centre. We stock the full range of Diamond Dotz® kits.
Steve and I started promoting Diamond Dotz® diamond paintings 4 years ago in weekend markets. We used to pack our Holden Cruze to the brim with trestles, gazebo and kits. We started displaying and selling them in markets around Newcastle and expanded our horizon to North Coast and Central Coast, sometimes to Sydney. After a year of market stall holder lifestyle, we moved into pop ups in shopping malls, traveling from one mall to another, from Newcastle to Central Coast to Sydney. We found a permanent pop up spot in Stockland Green Hills and built a good working relationship with Stockland Group. We were in Green Hills for 2 years and built an amazing and supportive Diamond Dotz® community.
We moved down to Shellharbour South Coast in February 2020 and started a pop up with Stockland Shellharbour in March. As you would know, Covid19 arrived in Australia. But with the continuous support of our loyal community online and offline, we managed to sustain our service to all our customers. Today we have our own shop specialising in Diamond Dotz® and will strive to add more handicrafts to our repertoire.
We are humbled to be the first Diamond Dotz® Specialty Shop in the world. It has only been made possible through building positive relationships with our team of suppliers, couriers, commercial partners, digital marketers, advisors and most importantly, our supportive dotting community.
We thank you all. May the Dotz be with you always.
Lisa and Steve Allerton
