HATCH Design and Creative Store is a delightful shop found in a most scenic part of Hervey Bay, at 1 Pier St Urangan. HATCH gift store was the brainchild of its creator and owner Nathalie Albouze and sells the most wonderful and unique “local creations amongst others”. With Nathalie’s background being in the field of graphic art, the shop highlights not only the owners own creative flare with the fantastic and colourful displays of the goods sold, it also is quite apparent in her selection of excellent local artistry.
Nathalie came up with the idea for her shop and after 12 months of preparation, found a location, a few weeks of renovating and opened the doors in August 2018. Nathalie identified that there was a need to help local artists in all fields and handcrafts to find an effective way to market their creations in a professional retail forum. The shop provides shelf space at reasonable rates with Nathalie using her experience in retail and marketing, to promote these products using her expertise.
I must admit the shop is a delight to walk around and browse. The range of crafts range from paintings to jewellery with so much to see you will not be disappointed. The store even boasts a terrific skincare range made here in Hervey Bay, and is all natural and quite luxurious. Nathalie is always up for a chat and with excellent coffee facilities on hand, one could make themselves quite at home while they decided which gifts most took their fancy.
I needed to circle the shop several times and each time I found something that I had missed in my previous round. The store is a credit to its owner and the artists whose work fills it.
If you are looking for that unique and special gift at reasonable prices and love things that are handmade HATCH Design and Creative Store is definitely the shop for you.
Drop in and give Nathalie a visit, her wonderful shop will definitely not disappoint.
