Quote from the Business Owner...

"The business name was inspired by the song My Island Home, by Christine Anu. 'My island home, my island home is waiting for me', which I could never listen to when I wasn’t home without the feeling of being a tiny bit lost or homesick.

The feeling of being grounded, bare feet on warm soil or the cold Emily Bay wet sand between your toes. All the sensations of comfort, joy and happiness are all the feelings of coming home.

As a child growing up on Norfolk Island, the impending excitement of a birthday present gift wrapped with a ribbon from the iconic shop of Piccadilly, was undeniable. You knew this would be something luxurious. The shop was an array of some of the finest items from across the globe, Crabtree and Evelyn, Liberty of London fabrics and divine embroidery from Cashes labels.

They all seemed so exquisite and magnificent. I still treasure some of those gifts that have lasted the test of time.

 The sensation must have made a lifelong impression, as now 40 years later I hunt for items from across the globe for my passion, My Island Home, homewares on Norfolk Island.

 I carefully handpick items for their beauty, uniqueness & affordability. My Turkish towels make the long yet speedy trip from Turkey, my hand stitched quilts from India are all hand stitched and my Japanese ceramics are slightly imperfect, which makes them so unique. Turkey, India and Japan are just a few of my suppliers with others including Australia, New Zealand and of course Norfolk Island."
