Community Corner: My Favourite Small Businesses In The Inner West

Running a small business is a challenge. Living in the inner west of Sydney we have a choice of so many wonderful small businesses. Below are some of the great small businesses I have discovered in the 12 years I have lived in Marrickville. They are mainly located in Marrickville, Dulwich Hill, Tempe, Newtown and the inner west. Give them a try and support a local inner west small business.

IT Help – Local Nerd
Luke McCallum is our go to IT guy for Marsh Financial Advice. He is a local inner westie and has been instrumental in setting all my systems and sorting out all our tech. He is excellent for personal tech stuff too. If you have any tech issues I recommend you contact Luke via his website here or check out his Facebook here

Creative Gifts – Hypmotive Hub
I love to shop at the Hypmotive Hub. They have the most beautiful, unique, handmade things for your home and they make the most amazing gifts. They also run wonderful workshops. The ink art one is so far my favourite. Hypmotive support local artists and everything is handmade. If you would like to find out more about them click here.

Electrician – Lauren Electrical
Lauren is an inner west local electrician. She helped replace lighting around her house and found her to have excellent attention to detail and she really cares. If you are looking for a electrician definitely give her a shout on 0407 747 867 or check out her website here.

Carpenters – JNK Carpentry
Jess from JNK did a brilliant job on our back deck. Her workmanship was spot on and her attention to detail superb. We will be using her for all our carpentry from now on. To find out more about Jess and see some pics of her work click here.

Hairdresser – Yeah Hair Baby
Above is a picture of me and the second most important man in my life (apart from my husband), my hairdresser Kevin at Yeah Hair Baby on Illawarra Road in Marrickville. Not only is Kevin massively talented, he is great for a chat! I highly recommend him and the team at Yeah Hair Baby. To find out more about the wonderful Yeah Hair Baby Team check out their Facebook page here.

Pet Sitting – Sheriff About Town
Lisa from Sheriff About Town is a fabulous pet sitter. She always looks after our two cats, Madison and Harry, whenever we are away. Lisa keeps us updated with pictures of how they are going and puts our minds at ease while we are on holiday. It is great to have someone who is so reliable to look after our precious fur babies! Above is a pic of Lisa with Madison. To find out more about Lisa and her petsitting and dog walking service please check out her website here.
