Imlay street’s newest giftware store, He-Be-Jeens, has been a long held dream of proprietor and Eden local, Janine Chester.
The mum of three threw her energy into raising her oldest daughter and twins to school age before opening the quality giftware shop last month.
She has filled it with gifts for all occasions, including a florist, and has included hand made products by five local women.
“It was tough coming up with an idea that would work in Eden but it’s going well,” she said.
“I love it, and its great being able to do things at my pace.”
Inspiration for the name came from her family, husband Heath and daughters Emma, Brooke and Ellie.
Jeen is for Janine, a nickname used by her children’s friends.
There is jewellery made by Kylie Ewin, photography by Nicole Crowe (Crowe Photography), Mel Seymour’s candles (Wax and Wick), Heidi Welsh’s gift cards and Diedre Kebby’s baby quilts, table runners and coat hangers.
Florist Hayley Fisher of Hayley Halo is in store eight hours a week, usually Fridays.
