love my craft : Annie Campbell

Meeting the maker behind a favourite product is the highlight of many Magnolia Square shoppers and part of the fabulous Mag experience. Meeting the hands that built, designed, crafted, stitched or cooked makes for a much more appreciated purchase. To get you knowing even more about our handy artisans, Snippets will now be bringing you a new regular segment..'love my craft'... Our first interviewee is Annie Campbell the founder of natural skin care range Cosse. As a nurse, Annie understands the importance of nurturing and as a result, started Cosse. It has evolved to be a combination of her natural instincts for wholistic skin care and her passion for essential oils and body products.

Q. Annie, where is home for Cosse?

A. Home for Cosse is in a small studio within the serene grounds of the historical Abbotsford convent. It is a wonderful place to be with a lovely vibe.

Q. At what point did your hobby become your business?

A. When my friends and family who I had given product to as gifts gave me positive feedback. They wanted more. Increasingly requesting products for themselves and to give as gifts.

Q. Describe the best day of your life so far….

A. Tomorrow! I just know it will be perfect!

Q. If you could go back in time for 24 hours, where would you go and why?

A. Ayers Rock for the unexpected spiritual experience.

Q. If there could only be one colour what colour would it be?

A. Orange Valencia – I can almost taste it!

Q. What is the best compliment you have ever been given?

A. “Annie, you sure do love having all the family together”

Q. Sunrise or Sunset?

A. Definitely Sunrise…Thai Chi on meditation hill in the Hunter Valley – can’t get better than that!

Q. Why would you recommend Magnolia Square to another retailer?

A. At Magnolia Square you will be rubbing shoulders with the most dynamic, exciting group of people who are all enthusiastic about what they do. It really provides the perfect setting and exposure for your business with a high volume of targeted shoppers who appreciate my product.

Meet Anne and over 60 other makers and artists at St Kilda this week. For full list of retailers and for further details check the website
