Website goes live

I finally managed to master a bit of IT and now have a semi-decent website which can be found at www.lordcoconut.com

It's pretty basic at the moment but will be updated as more of the business is confirmed and I start confirming suppliers.

Here are some of the old photo's I have managed to include on the site:

Craft Hatch - State Library

Visited Craft Hatch today which was held at State Library of Victoria to celebrate the end of the Til you Drop - Shopping: A Melbourne History exhibition. I also met up with some very friendly jewellers who may be interested in supplying Lord Coconut in the near future.  Even if they don't come on board, I think their designs should be highlighted.

They include Justin Siow , Femi Coppi, Jill Hermans, Puneet Jodhka and Tom Malchi .

I also found out that NMIT is holding FORGE Advanced Diploma in Engineering Technology/ Jewellery Graduate exhibition for 2010. Opening on November 11, this is a must see for me.

Introducing Lord Coconut himself!

Initial website launched

A very simple, temporary website has been launched. A more detailed website will be launched once our corporate image is confirmed.

Store inspiration

Look and feel of store will be a contemporary version of the Victorian Natural History Museum. 




Currently deciding if we puchase this 1880s ex-bank display case to place in store.

Have we found a site for Lord Coconut?






Lease negotiations are occurring with Melbourne's GPO for a small 15sq m space on level one. Fingers crossed!
