Have you ever been on a specific mission and headed to a business directory and thought- how do I choose?

Have you then picked the logo that you liked the best and looked elsewhere for their online reviews wishing it was simpler?

If you answered YES! Then welcome to Shop Local Perth - a directory with a difference.

Each and every business listed here is Perth locally owned, operated and run. By engaging one of these businesses you are supporting our community and keeping an actual person / family (not just a big corporation) in business.

Each listing is a blog from one of the hand picked, community focused Perth Happenings team. We will have tried the business. That may have involved testing the product, experiencing the attraction or getting to know the service and hearing about their community connection.

You want to shop local and support Perth but not sure where to start? We are taking the guess work out for you.

This will NOT be advertising space. These are honest features and feedback on these businesses. If we go to a business and it is less than positive, we will not write a feature. We are keeping it real, honest and a place you can come to and trust our features.                                 

So, are you ready to Shop Local? We're glad to have you here!

Melbourne Cup. It is the race that stops the nation. The reason to get your hair and make-up done, feel a little spesh and get a gorgeous dress for race day. What happens though when you don't fit in the 'normal' sizes of 6-10?
I decided to find out JUST how hard it is to hire a dress in Perth if you are a size 12, 14. 16 or 18 +
