Linda Whiteside

Introducing present story, right in the heart of Coburg and brimming with eclectic gifts and homewares. present story is the brainchild of Linda Whiteside, a veteran of the retail scene who, after 25 years fitting out other peoples spaces, decided the time was right to put her expertise to work - to showcase her own 'present story'. The style is open and warm, featuring plenty of natural light and a relaxed atmosphere.
 
"I want my products to ‘tell a story’ - whether about where it was designed, the person or company who created it, what it might mean to my customer, or how it connects to the person they are gifting it to” says Linda. The concept that 'every present has a story' is evident in the displays, with local wholesalers and artists personally showcasing their product ranges.  Each item has been selected for it’s unique beauty or because it is fun, quirky and clever.  Linda has handpicked local artists, silversmiths, candlemakers, creators of natural skincare, purveyors of local produce, napery and much more. She’s also offering exclusive pieces from her own global travels.
 
Open Tuesday to Friday 10-6, Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-4
(Closed Mondays).

Pop in and meet Linda, hear her story and tell her yours, in Coburg’s newest retail space.  It’s the next big story.
