Earlier this week, we published an article about Shopping in Bicheno which included this snippet about Coastal Style…
If you’re like me and you allocate very little time to the latest fashion trends, you can always go shopping in Bicheno for clothes. And accessories. And homewares. All in the one shop; appropriately called Coastal Style. Judging by the hive of activity during our visit, this is THE place to be seen on the east coast of Tasmania.
Coastal Style: A Chain Reaction
Now that mention might seem like a tiny gesture; and it’s just the sort of thing we like to do around here. But Kylie Bates, owner of Coastal Style, was extremely excited to have her business promoted by Think Tasmania. She sent us a lovely message when she read the article to say
Thank you so much, this is my first little write up in five years so I am so happy! Yay!!!!
We couldn’t believe such a great shop in Bicheno hasn’t had a single mention in the media in five years. So we decided to make things right. Then by pure coincidence, we learned that Jen Holdsworth, one of the team from Think Tasmania, is a huge fan of Coastal Style. We asked her why she loves it.
A visit to Coastal Style is an annual pilgrimage for me. Each February my family heads to Honeymoon Bay at Freycinet National Park for five days of camping. Yes, it’s a Holdsworth Challenge… six of us, but what fun we have! Day three is always a trip to Bicheno for a coffee at the Blue Edge Bakery (a simple but missed pleasure when camping) and a walk to the blowhole. Then I sneak off to Coastal Style.
Immediately you are welcomed when walking in, even if you’re dressed in camping fashion… genuine coastal style! The shop has a beautiful coastal theme and stocks many Tasmanian pieces, jewellery and artworks, along with stunning clothing items and home wares. Without fail, I walk out with a bag of items.
I’m looking forward to my next visit in February. Watch out Coastal Style… the Holdsworth family is on its way!
Thanks: Think Tasmania Style!
